It's certainly beginning to look that way.
The Jimmy G2 Column.
.A couple of weeks ago when all our rivals had played and won we went into the game against Leicester which we had to win to keep up and we didn't even think to blink.
Yesterday when two of our rivals had already played and lost we went into the last game of the weekend against Everton looking to open the gap and once again we stared them all down.
I got that same warm feeling at the six goal hammering of Everton which I had as a kid when Xmas week was the occasion of the trip to Santa's Grotto at the Co-op.
At 1-0 down the second before Calvert's Lewin's header was disallowed for the push on Sanchez all my disappointing Xmases flashed before me. One year there was a mix-up and I got a set of hair slides and some false eyelashes.
But all was well and I changed it later for a balsa wood glider. Spurs changed their losing start for a super charged performance and a six goal romp.Everton were well and truly seasonally stuffed.
Are we contenders? Is Mauricio going to reject the offers from Manchester. or Madrid? Will Trump be Impeached? These are questions for another day and probably for someone above my pay grade. Enjoy the moment people.
Harry Kane scored his fourth consecutive brace against Everton and could have had four, but it was Son that initiated the comeback with a tricky finish after Pickford had collided on the edge of the area with Zouma.
Son was exuberant and unstoppable and scored twice. Eriksen was outstanding and scored on the volley from 25yds which he made look easy. Dele ever alert was on the scoresheet too.
For half an hour it was an open and exciting game but eventually the Spurs attack were irresistible.
Dele didn't appear for the second half nursing a hamstring as a result of a nasty tackle by Pickford after the whistle had blown for an offside. It was all that saved him from a red card, though I don't see why.
Lamela got an assist but tended to overplay. Skipp made another appearance and may get another start before the New Year. Another team performance and apart from the Dele injury all is well. 'Only precautionary' says Mauricio.
Sanchez returned from a nine game absence and was rusty but effective alongside Toby. Walcott scored their opener which made all his Xmases come at once. Siggy got their second after a mazy run along the edge of the penalty area.
Four defenders tracked him and Hugo might well have saved the shot anyway. But let's not be greedy. After Harry Kane put us 3-1 ahead before half time the game was over to all intents and purposes.
Everton never quite recovered from the disallowed goal at 1-0 up and a relentless Spurs concentrated on improving their goal difference for the battles to come. 5 points up on Chelsea and Arsenal and a mere 2 behind City.
Last month City were nailed on for the title. This month it's Liverpool. Next month it might well be Spurs but chicken enumeration prior to hatching is a tricky business and Musings rarely makes predictions especially about the future.
So tuck into the turkey and stuffing with abandon fans, not the boys though they have another eminently winnable fixture against Bournemouth on Boxing Day and will have to do it without the help of Santa. His job is done .More stuffing anyone?
It's OK man, we got this.
Happy Xmas Everyone.

Full ten minutes, well what else have you got to do? Relax it's Christmas.
Everton showed early but Spurs were slicker. quicker and more alert.
