Tottenham - The Top Team in London?

It left me wondering whether this may end up being the first season in a long time when Tottenham can genuinely hope to finish as London's top club. It's actually 16 seasons since Spurs finished a campaign as the highest placed club in London, but 1994-95 was hardly a vintage year for any of the capital's teams. In fact, Spurs fans probably took more pleasure from seeing their old boy Nayim scored a last-minute winner for Real Zaragoza with a shot from the half-way line against Arsenal in the Cup Winner's Cup final than they did from finishing seventh in the Premier League. The only other occasion when neither Arsenal nor Chelsea has been London's top side at the end of a Premier League season was when Queens Park Rangers finished fifth in 1992-93. For the last seven years it's been Chelsea; for the eight before that it was Arsenal.
