Pape Matar Sarr brought the game level after half-time, but it seemed as though the game was destined to end as a draw. That was until stoppage time, when Brennan Johnson’s strike at the back post sealed all three points.
The last-gasp winner has boosted Tottenham’s hopes of at least qualifying for the Champions League next season. Meanwhile, there’s a slim chance of a title race on the cards, with just seven points separating them from the top.
With that said, here’s a look at Tottenham’s next five fixtures and how they compare to their rivals at the top.

Wolves (H) – February 17
Next up for Tottenham is a home clash against Wolves, which will be far from an easy tie. The Midlands outfit have climbed into the top half of the table and have impressed under new boss Gary O’Neil in his first season.
Crystal Palace (H) – March 2
There’s a slight gap between Tottenham’s next two games, due to the match with Chelsea being rearranged for the Carabao Cup final. It means the following clash is a home one against London rivals Crystal Palace.
The Eagles have struggled this season, with just five points separating them from the bottom three, while injuries continue to ravage their squad.

Aston Villa (A) – March 10
A huge clash in the context of both the top four race and the title race follows for Tottenham as they travel to Aston Villa. The Villains are firmly in the conversation at the top of the table and will prove a tough test.
Fulham (A) – March 16
Back-to-back away games will see Tottenham make the short trip across London to take on rivals Fulham at Craven Cottage. Marco Silva’s side sit in mid-table, with two wins in their last five matches, and an ability to beat anyone on their day.

Luton Town (H) – March 30
Rounding off the next five fixtures is a home tie against Luton Town, who have impressed in their first season back in the Premier League. The Hatters have caused their fair share of upsets in the top flight and Spurs will be keen to avoid being the next.
