Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks is unlikely to play again this season after suffering an ankle injury on Saturday, according to Mauricio Pochettino.
Spurs' 2-0 success at Burnley was made all the sweeter by a surprise triumph for Crystal Palace.
Pochettino's side, second in the table, is now seven points short of Chelsea, but the Argentinian has urged his team to believe it is capable of winning a first league title in 56 years. We clearly need to find some form but the top four race is far from over and Chelsea could do Arsenal a big favour this week.
"We reduced the gap to Chelsea by three points but it is still a big gap. If we can do that you can see what we can do".
"If we do our job we can be there until the end of the season and try to fight for the title". We are there fighting for the Premier League.
"Tottenham is a very strong team and will put up a very good fight against us".
"We have to deal with defeat and go again on Saturday".
"It's important to show that we 've learned from last season and that is a good thing", Pochettino said.
"So many of their players have the experience of how to manage pressure". "It was hard, but in the second half we dominated, created chances and in the end fully deserved the victory".
The French global said, "We're still focused on ourselves".
Zlatan Ibrahimovic returns from suspension for Manchester United's clash with Everton at Old Trafford. They can win or lose but it is not a question of putting pressure on them.
And Clement feels Tottenham's attacking approach will suit Swansea better than Middlesbrough's caution.
