Chelsea could get stressed - Vertonghen outlines Spurs title ambitions

We've proven in the last two years what we're capable of.

The gap at the top remains at seven points with eight games remaining after Antonio Conte's men battled to a 2-1 win over Manchester City, but Vertonghen is hopeful there are more twists and turns to come.

Son, who became the most expensive Asian player when he moved from Bayer Leverkusen to Tottenham in 2015, will set his sights on becoming the first Asian player to score 10 goals in a single EPL season.

"We were missing five players at Swansea who normally start, but the other guys fit in and we're a very strong squad who can beat every other squad in the Premier League".

'Maybe that is a game we would have lost last season'.

Spurs will be focusing on pressurising league leaders Chelsea in pursuit of the title and are seen as the only challenger remaining.

And Denmark global Christian Eriksen added a third to secure three points for the north London side.

'From the touchline, you must translate confidence, trust and belief.

"Against Tottenham, we are always in an emergency."Britos was important because Kaboul and Prodl were injured and we do not have a defence now". I got a great reception from the fans, Swansea is a great club and hopefully they can do enough to stay up this year.

Defeat for West Ham, who are five points above 18th-placed Swansea, would leave them firmly in the mire.

The Italian managed to utter a bit of English too in congratulations during his post-match interview but left the sweary stuff to his interpreter following the dismissal of Miguel Britos and now leaves them very thin in central defence.

Tottenham have four home games remaining in the Premier League this season (including this game).

Conte is well aware of the threat posed by Tottenham and believes six wins from their final eight games could be required to keep Pochettino's in-form side at bay.

Spurs' youthful side are still just about in reach of league leaders Chelsea, sitting seven points behind in second place, although few are looking past the Blues for champions as the season comes to a close.
