Pochettino hails Spurs’ title belief

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that his players have a real belief they can win the Premier League title this season.

The Spurs boss made the revelation following his side’s hard-fought 1-0 victory over Watford at White Hart Lane, with the result lifting them up to second place in the Premier League standings ahead of Sunday’s round of fixtures.

“You can see in their eyes, the feeling, the energy, that they believe,” Pochettino said.

“Belief is the most important word. If we believe, anything can happen.”

He added: “It’s real, we are in a very good position but we need to keep working and not think too much about the future.

“For me, historically Tottenham is one of the biggest clubs in England. It is not a surprise we are in a good position. But it is better not to speak too much, only to work hard.”

Tottenham will be aiming to replicate the feats of league leaders Leicester city when they lock horns with fellow title hopefuls Manchester City on Saturday.
