Kane back to boost Tottenham's Premier League title bid

Mauricio Pochettino's side came within a whisker of immediately surrendering the three points they clawed back off Chelsea, by nearly losing on Wednesday night against Swansea.

Asked if he believed if Spurs could catch Chelsea - who beat Manchester City 2-1 on Wednesday night - Pochettino replied: "I believe that we can win every game if we play like today - and then we'll see".

Carlo Cudicini and Steve Holland informed him that Mauricio Pochettino's side had got the better of Swansea in the earlier kick-off at the Liberty Stadium.

But in the last few minutes left in the game, Spurs performed stronger than ever, scoring three goals.

But Dele Alli equalised with his 15th league goal of the season before Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen struck in added time to complete a remarkable 3-1 victory - their fifth successive league win.

Watford's last win against Tottenham in any competition was a 3-2 League Cup triumph at White Hart Lane in 1994, although they lost 8-6 on aggregate. They are two points above City and six ahead of Arsenal and United, although they have played more games than their rivals. Swansea defended for 90 minutes but they were very close to beating us.

And when quizzed on Conte's comments, Pochettino continued: "I can understand, it's true that when you are seven points above the second team in the table, it is normal for them to win the league". We can't stop pushing and dreaming of that league [title], but they had a big win today and the gap's still seven points.

"Probably if it was Chelsea for example the opponent would not have the ball three times in the last 20 minutes, I think".

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

"We are in a position that we need to do our job, winning games and put pressure (on them)".

"We've got some massive quality". I don't know. But I think this group is something very special.

Former midfielder Danny Murphy is expecting big things from Tottenham in years to come, but admits they are still a couple of signings short of a team capable of winning the Premier League title.
