Pochettino tells Tottenham to believe in title challenge

AFP, London

Tottenham should seek inspiration from an unlikely run to the last 16 of the Champions League to pose a Premier League title challenge, believes Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Despite the midweek exertions of drawing 1-1 away to Barcelona to progress in Europe, Spurs closed to within five points of Premier League leaders Manchester City thanks to substitute Christian Eriksen’s stoppage time winner to earn a 1-0 Wembley victory over a stubborn Burnley on Saturday.

The win kept Spurs in third place and just three points adrift of second-placed Liverpool, who can return to the top of the table with victory over Manchester United on Sunday.

Pochettino knows that many believe the title is a two-horse race between City and Liverpool.

But he argued otherwise, citing his side’s recovery from taking just one point from their first three Champions League group games as encouragement that anything can happen.

“We are in a very good position,” said Pochettino, who has also had to contend with persistent delays over a move to the club’s news stadium, no summer signings in the transfer market and a host of injuries to members of his squad who shone at the World Cup.
