Mauricio Pochettino's side battled to a 3-1 win against Swansea on Wednesday evening in a quick turn of fixtures.
That might well have changed, and it doesn't seem coincidental that it might have changed just after Chelsea suffer their first wobble of this title run-in with defeat to Crystal Palace, and before they play a potential season-changing game at home to Manchester City.
Clement's side had led the match for 77 minutes, from Routledge's opener in the 11th minute, but Alli started Spurs' late comeback in the 88th minute - before Son and Erikssen added to Swansea's misery.
Son Heung-min is set to lead the line for Tottenham after scoring a late victor at Swansea but Hugo Lloris could miss a second game due to illness.
That's good news for Spurs, who have yet to lose a match this season at White Hart Lane.
Tottenham old boy Tom Carroll admits it will be a unusual sensation trying to dent his former club's Premier League title hopes on Wednesday.

She did good, she went 3-for-5 from the field, she was putting ball pressure and scoring points, so I can't be mad. Victoria Vivians led the winners with 19 points while UConn was led by Gabby Williams (21 points, eight rebounds ).
Antonio Conte has completely transformed Chelsea's fortunes this season as opposed to previous year. If you were stuck doing work this week, we'll get you caught up.
Spurs and Chelsea meet in the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley later on the month with Conte aiming to win a first league and cup double as manager. "Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United are all devastating on their day, but only Antonio Conte's Chelsea are as good as Tottenham when the chips are down".
"We had one of the best games since I have been here on Tuesday (in the 2-0 win over West Brom), where the players played the way I like and I would have liked to have been able to play against Tottenham with a full team. And Spurs can only do what they can do in the run-in", said John. Nine games to go, nine very exciting games to go.
"It is insane how the goals came in the last few minutes but we pushed and we created chances to win", said Pochettino. "Definitely, yes. I am convinced of it". This season we are fighting again.
Tottenham Hotspur have four home games remaining in the Premier League this season (including this game). They've transformed into a bona fide Top 4 team and we were too busy making fun of them to notice.
It is unbelievable. Even Vincent Janssen comes off the bench now and makes a difference and I think we have a very strong squad that can compete with every squad in the Premier League'. We are at seven points now and it's important to be there if Chelsea fail.
