Manchester United blew the Premier League title race wide open with a 2-0 win over lethargic leaders Chelsea, while Liverpool are back in third place after a 1-0 victory at West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.
Substitute Vincent Janssen rounded off the action with a fourth goal in stoppage time, the Dutchman's first Premier League strike from open play since joining past year. We're going to say YES as Tottenham closed the gap on a jittery Chelsea to four points with six games to go.
"Now if they fail we are there".
The England worldwide netted his 20th Premier League goal of the campaign as Spurs eased to a 4-0 win to keep the pressure on league leaders Chelsea.
As a result, just four points separate #1 and #2 with six games remaining.
Tottenham Hotspur can inflict another psychological blow on Premier League leaders Chelsea by beating them in Saturday's FA Cup semi-final tie at Wembley, striker Harry Kane has said. But now we are focused on fighting only our opponent when we play.
"We must understand this, that (something) really important is happening this season because we are doing a great job and a miracle if you consider last season and the problems we had".
"It won't be easy because I think Tottenham now is the best team and they are in good form and they have a lot of enthusiasm". Chelsea's long-serving captain will be leaving at the end of the season, the capital club announced on Monday. He still needed two goes from four yards out, but after taking 23 Premier League games to score a goal that was not a penalty, he at least retained the good sense to avoid celebrating too wildly.
"We'll bounce back. There is still lots to play for this season".
The Argentine also said that goal difference will be important in the title run-in this season.
But after watching his side defeat Bournemouth 4-0 at White Hart Lane on Saturday, Pochettino said his players had wised up. I prefer to play for the title instead of not fighting for the title and being calm.
"But I think it's hard to single Jack out".
"Last season when I told you, (you thought) "This guy is a little insane.' Now that you hear (it) from him, you can put (yourself) in my position and my players" position".
Tottenham have just two home games remaining and they are against a United team that are unbeaten in 22 matches and a North London derby against Arsenal, who may be struggling but would love nothing more than to kill their rivals' title hopes.
Dembele struck after 16 minutes, slamming in a shot from six metres after Christian Eriksen's corner reached him at the far post through a crowd of players.
He continued in saying that, " a whole host of things" could have gone better for his side and said that "as a group", the mentality of the players was not "good enough".
