Pochettino: Spurs showed character and stars fight for the badge

Pochettino: Spurs showed character and stars fight for the badge

The hosts led from the 11th to the 88th minute on a dramatic evening at the Liberty Stadium.

While Chelsea have been in sensational form during the current Premier League campaign, Spurs have also done exceedingly well in maintaining pressure on the Blues in the race for the title.

'They have got a couple of hard games coming up and we have to keep winning and hopefully they get a bit stressed'.

'We've proven in the last two years what we're capable of, ' said Belgium defender Vertonghen.

"Before it was always "Tottenham will finish fifth or sixth", but I think in the last two seasons especially we've proven that we belong where we are".

Indeed, it somehow seemed fitting that the Spurs team should be wearing a peculiar sickly-looking gold third-choice shirt - maybe a show of sympathy for Lloris.

Son's ninth single season league goal was good enough to be the new single season record for an Asian player in the EPL, exceeding Ki Sung-yueng, center midfielder for Swansea City, who set a single season record of eight goals in 2014-15.

'It's true we reduced the gap by three points but it's still a big gap, seven points is a massive difference, ' the Argentine said.




Janssen scored 27 goals for AZ in the 2015-16 season and was the Eredivisie's top scorer, but he is yet to score in open play in the Premier League and has only five goals in all competitions so far for Spurs.

That has catapulted the Hornets up to 10th place with 37 points and manager Walter Mazzarri felt the first 30 minutes in midweek at home to West Brom was the best spell of football they had produced all season.

"It is insane how the goals came in the last few minutes but we pushed and we created chances to win". We're happy Liverpool drew [with Bournemouth] in the last couple of minutes. "We want to secure that Champions League spot as soon as possible and then we'll see what's possible".

However, their resistance was eventually broken and, with relegation rivals Hull beating Middlesbrough, the Swans' descent back into the bottom three leaves their hopes of survival in doubt.

'It's important for us to focus on Swansea now, like Burnley and try to get the three points. In the we got the victory our performance deeserved.

"They are pushing for the title and we are fighting ourselves".

"Winning a trophy is not as easy as, for example, going to the shop and buying a pen".
