Pochettino: Tottenham Can Win Their Remaining EPL Matches

039;Nothing impossible', says Mauricio Pochettino as Tottenham attempt to inflict pressure on leaders Chelsea

As the 88th minute ticked over at the Liberty Stadium, Swansea were still leading 1-0 thanks to an early goal from Wayne Routledge.

"Vincent works hard and you can see that he did so well".

"Sometimes I hear people saying: "Tottenham must win a title this season or next season" but come on", he told a news conference.

I have heard both Arsene Wenger and Pep Guardiola saying that finishing in the top four of the Premier League is like winning a trophy elsewhere. "Definitely, yes. I am convinced of it".

Furthermore, why would Pochettino, who is incredibly comfortable at White Hart Lane, want to leave without achieving anything other than getting Spurs back into the top four?

"I think the main thing is [the strikers] get a lot more space [in the Netherlands]", he said.

"There is a good group of players at this club".

"That's why strikers get so many chances and goals in Holland, and obviously it's different here". "Probably if it was Chelsea for example the opponent would not have the ball three times in the last 20 minutes, I think". Swansea defended for 90 minutes but they were very close to beating us. Surely Pochettino won't play him again.

Janssen's arrival saw Son switch to the left and he fired straight at Fabianski as Spurs began to lay siege to the Swansea goal.

After Kendall Jenner's now-infamous Pepsi ad was memed to hell on Twitter, we really should have expected this. The protester then approached Mayor Wheeler with a Pepsi and said, "So this is for you". "Not a smart move".

Chelsea are at the top of the standings at the moment with 72 points from 30 matches, seven points clear of second-placed and London rivals Tottenham.

He said: 'Chelsea are looking very strong.

Tottenham remain in contention to win the Premier League and FA Cup and are now seven points behind Chelsea, who they face in the cup semifinal.

"Dele's goal made a big difference for our belief and we've proved time after time now that we're not going to lay down until the game is over". We're happy Liverpool drew [with Bournemouth] in the last couple of minutes.

"We have to be encouraged by our performance for long periods of the game".

Eric Dier then became the latest Tottenham player to put in an effort on goal, shooting wide from 30 yards, before Pochettino withdrew the ineffective Sissoko in favour of Vincent Janssen. "This season we are showing that we are a team".

'It's important for us to focus on Swansea now, like Burnley and try to get the three points.

Ayew held off Ben Davies to cross from the byline and Routledge, on a night when he became a Swansea record-breaker with his 182nd Premier League appearance for the club, reacted quickly to score from close range.
