3. Tottenham - 12 games
There were a few mumbles and grumbles when Andre Villas-Boas took over at Tottenham in the summer - but their recent run of 12 games unbeaten put any uncertainty surrounding the Portuguese coach to bed.
Their excellent run of form between December and March culminated with a morale-boosting 2-1 win against Arsenal last month - although following that win which put them seven points clear of the Gunners they lost two on the bounce.
Spurs got back to winning ways last weekend with victory over Swansea, and now sit in 3rd place.
