Mauricio Pochettino: Tottenham believe they can stay in title race

Mauricio Pochettino: Tottenham believe they can stay in title race

Tottenham now sits in the third position on the Premier League table, with seven points behind league leaders Liverpool and two points behind second place, Man City on the Premier League table. For me the most important thing is the team in a great level of belief, character and mentality, with a lot of circumstance we are again showing that we can win in any stadium and against any club. But if you put Hamilton in McLaren last season and Alonso in Mercedes, it's the same story, Hamilton on the bottom and Alonso on the top. If you have the auto to win and you are good, then you win. "You can crash with an awesome vehicle and not win".

"I follow Formula One and I love McLaren but it wasn't competitive last season". 'Daniel is quicker than me.

"But I think after [it was about] trying to find solutions because the player wanted to leave the club and the club wanted to provide for him another place to play football".

Harry Kane intends to step up his rehabilitation from injury next week and is confident of a swift return for Tottenham.

It looked for all the world like Spurs were going to spend the rest of the weekend ruing a missed opportunity, having spent most of the match camped on the edge of Newcastle's box, and watching as their rivals capitalised on their slip-up. Janssen, a £15million signing from AZ Alkmaar in 2016, has not made Spurs appearance for almost 18 months, while on loan at Fenerbahce and recovering from a foot operation.

The 25-year-old can play on either wing, but former Gunners defender Keown believes it is Suarez's ability to play in central midfield which poses a threat to Xhaka.

"People get a bad feeling, not any manager or player, you know why players arrive in the first team?"

In keeping with a season of struggle, Tottenham were forced all the way by a dogged Newcastle, buoyed by a stunning 2-1 win over Manchester City in midweek that carried the Magpies five points clear of the relegation zone. "We always believe in ourselves", said the Spurs boss.

"We made a decision to send him on loan [last season] and then he was injured [at the start of this season]".

"That's why people appreciate a lot the Premier League, the Premier League is the most competitive and so hard to win and achieve top four".
