Pochettino: Players daring to dream

Spurs boss feels players believe in title bid

Mauricio Pochettino has stated he feels his Tottenham Hotspur players are starting to believe they can win the Premier League title.

The north London side moved up to second place after a 1-0 win over Watford at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

Spurs leapfrogged over Manchester City who were humbled 3-1 at home by leaders Leicester City, who now enjoy a five-point margin at the top.

However, with the club as high as they have been at this stage of the season since 2012, Pochettino thinks a feeling is growing that they can win a first league crown since 1961.

“You can see in their eyes, the feeling, the energy, that they believe,” he said. “In football belief is the most important word. If we believe, anything can happen. I believe in my squad and they believe too in the way we play. This synergy is very important for the future.

“But it is better not to speak too much, only to show, to work hard.

“This is the better way to show we are ready to compete and after, we see what happens. But the most important thing is to do rather than speak.

“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. Maybe in the last few years, but in the past Tottenham showed they are one of the best clubs in England.

“Leicester fully deserve their position and how they won the game they completely deserved it because they were better than Manchester City.”
