The battle for UEFA Champions League football will go down to the wire when Tottenham visit relegated Norwich on the final day of the Premier League season on Sunday, May 22.
Spurs have given themselves every chance of securing a top-four finish after going unbeaten in their last five games, including a 3-0 win over Arsenal in the North London derby last week. 
Antonio Conte's side beat strugglers Burnley 1-0 this past weekend to climb above the Gunners into fourth spot, although their arch-rivals have an opportunity to erase the two-point gap when they face Newcastle on Monday, May 16.

Conte admits the ball is in Arsenal's court, but described their victory over the Clarets as vital in keeping the club's top-four ambitions alive.
"It's a massive win, another must-win game for us, only one result - to get three points, to put pressure onto Arsenal," the Italian told Spurs TV.
"Now, in this moment, we're two points up. For sure, the situation is still in their hands because they have two games to play, but you know very well in England, it's not simple to win."
The Canaries are set for a swift return to the Championship, however, they could move off the foot of the table by pulling off a shock result this weekend.
Dean Smith's team halted a five-match losing streak with a 1-1 draw at Wolves last Sunday to close within a point of Watford, who take on Chelsea in their final game.

Smith lamented the decision that led to Wanderers' equaliser and admitted that they just didn't get the rub of the green this term.
"I am disappointed with the result in the end because I didn't think it was a foul for their goal," he said. "It was two yards in front of the linesman and we have seen it clearly on the replay that Dimi [Giannoulis] toes the ball through him.
"Unfortunately, those decisions have not gone for us this season. They ask us why we are so irate when we have got nothing to play for, but Watford got beat and, if we had won that game, it would have put us above Watford today. So, I am annoyed at that but pleased with the performance."
