Mauricio Pochettino retaining hope as Tottenham win and Chelsea lose

Spurs meanwhile are bidding to bridge a gap of seven points to league leaders Chelsea, meaning they can ill-afford to drop any points in their pursuit. "We need to see the scans and then start his recovery".

Like Lloris, Burnley are also looking over their shoulder after a seventh league game without a win left them only five points above the bottom three.

Tottenham visit relegation-threatened Swansea City on Wednesday, while Chelsea's lead could be cut further after they host fourth-placed Manchester City, but Pochettino said there was no pressure on the league leaders. We wish it is not a big issue and we hope it's not a big problem for the future for him.

"The fans always stuck by me when I was here, but the most important thing was getting the points and we did that".

Harry Winks is out for the season after injuring his ankle against Burnley while Victor Wanyama is also a doubt as he limped off.

That goal gave Spurs the confidence and freedom to pour forward at will as they looked to put the result beyond doubt, something they managed to do with aplomb with 13 minutes remaining.

"We found out [the Chelsea result] straight after the game". I think it will be an interesting game for us.

At Turf Moor on Saturday they were without top scorer Kane and lost Vincent Wanyama and Harry Winks to first-half injuries, but still produced an accomplished display after the interval to become the first visiting top-flight side to win at Burnley since November.

He had to travel back to London with his teammates as he was unable to return to the Stadium. We know there's work to do, it's the nature of the Premier League.

Talking about Saturday's game, he said: "It's true, in the first half it was hard to play in the way we normally play but throughout the second half we dominated the game and created chances". We won a lot of second balls. "In the end, if we achieve the top four it is good for us". They're one of the best teams at home and they showed that again today.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino believes it's unfair to judge his side on winning titles, and that they deserve more credit for what they've achieved. He's exclusively focussed on ensuring Tottenham is focussed on the task at hand, coming away with all three points in Wales on Wednesday.
