Tottenham secured a confidence-boosting win over Arsenal at the weekend, a victory that was vitally important to Jose Mourinho and his players.
Spurs' season was rather petering out with no sign of great improvement.
They were conceding goals at will and then couldn't even beat a Bournemouth side who are on the verge of being relegated.
They have shipped 46 strikes since Mourinho walked into the club while he is still insisting on playing defensive football.
Arsenal had the lion share of possession on Sunday afternoon but Spurs still came up trumps.
Is this the start of a revival for Tottenham? It could well be, but everyone associated with the club will be aware of the inconsistencies they've been fighting recently.
One moment they can be one of the top clubs in the division, before the next, they're dropping points against the Cherries and Sheffield United.
Spurs will need to improve greatly over the summer but that seems unlikely given the club estimate losses of £200m following Coronavirus.
One player who has been linked with the club recently, something GiveMeSport exclusively revealed, is Napoli forward Arkadiusz Milik.
It's been suggested that he's open to joining providing Harry Kane leaves, and indeed, Football London reported Alasdair Gold echoed those thoughts this week.
Answering questions in his weekly Q&A, he said:
"He appears to be someone Mourinho likes the look of but his agent has been making noises about the old Harry Kane problem and a lack of game time. It's something that seems to dog Spurs more than other clubs, perhaps because they so rarely play with two up front and Kane is just so dominant."
GIVEMESPORT'S Matt Dawson says...
Kane is a wonderful luxury to have.
He is a fine player, winning the Golden Boot at the last World Cup and clearing 30 goals in a season on a regular basis.
However, for all his star qualities, he is also proving to be a problem for Tottenham.
That isn't just under Mourinho but it was also an issue during Mauricio Pochettino's reign.
The thing is that Kane starts nearly every game, and in a formation where Spurs utilise just one striker, plan B doesn't get used very often.
Fernando Llorente was pivotal in Spurs' run to the Champions League final last season, scoring against City, but he was willing to play second fiddle to Kane - not many other strikers are.
That appears to be the case with Milik, a player used to being the main man at Napoli.
The Poland international has started 16 times in Serie A this term, scoring ten goals in the process.
If Kane leaves, he'd be a fine addition, but even then, the finances might not be possible.
Either way, the club will need to overcome the issue strikers have with playing back-up to the England skipper.
