Pochettino: Title race is wide open


Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino believes any team currently in the top ten can win the Premier League title this season.

Only goal difference separates Arsenal and Leicester at the top of the table with Manchester City three points behind and Tottenham seven points off the top two.

Tenth-placed Watford are 14 points off the pace but teams with teams taking points off each other every week, Pochettino feels anyone in the top of the table are in the running.

"Everyone in the top 10 has the chance to win the league. It’s very open and you can’t guess what will happen," he told reporters.

"There are a lot of games ahead and anything can happen."

Tottenham missed the opportunity to close the gap on their rivals on Wednesday night as they beaten 1-0 by Leicester but Pochettino has called on his players to respond when they face Sunderland on Saturday.

"We’re excited to compete but you need to accept sometimes that bad results like last night’s against Leicester can happen," he stated.

"We missed a great opportunity to establish ourselves in the top part of the table. You feel disappointed but you need to carry on, keep working hard because everything is open.

"The league is very tough. It’s the hardest in the world and today it is very open. We have Arsenal, Leicester, Manchester City, Tottenham, and then behind us Liverpool, Manchester United, West Ham."
