Spurs have won only two of 63 away league games against the "Big Four" during the Premier League era. In the past two seasons we've taken one point from a possible twenty-one available away to Utd, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea.

Obviously all other clubs in the Prem probably have records as bad as ours at the grounds of the big four, considering Arsenal and Chelsea rarely lose at home. But other fans don't pretend they are level-pegging with the big four. Though to be fair, we only believed the gap was closing last season and the season before. Reality has a nasty sting to it.

An improvement on this 'record' is the way to gauge true progression.

Chelsea away up next. Am I asking too much?

I'm confident about Saturday. Even Lawro is. Cheeky point at the Bridge?

It will end in tears. Anelka set for debut. Wonderful timing there.

All the signs point to Spurs actually having a chance to grab points. So it's probably going to end 5-0 to Chelsea or something ridiculous like that that only Spurs can manage when people expect them to accomplish something.
