Pochettino insists Chelsea are still title favourites but insists Spurs won’t give up

Date Posted,April 3, 2017

Mauricio Pochettino admits it is “crazy” that Chelsea’s lead at the top could be slashed from 10 points to just ONE over the next week.

And he has urged his players to keep believing and dreaming they can reel in the league leaders.

A win for Pochettino’s Tottenham at Burnley and shock home defeat to Crystal Palace for league-leading Chelsea on Saturday saw their lead trimmed to seven points.

And if results go Spurs’ way the advantage could be just a single point by the time Chelsea kick off against Bournemouth on Saturday evening.

Spurs travel to relegation-threatened Swansea on Tuesday night, before hosting Watford on Saturday lunchtime.

Meanwhile, Chelsea welcome Manchester City to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, before their Saturday tea-time game at to Bournemouth.

If Tottenham win both their game and City beat Chelsea, the gap will be just a point come kick-off at the Vitality Stadium.

Pochettino said: “Yes, it’s crazy but that is football and all can happen.

“That’s a good reason for all to show belief is the most important thing in football – not only quality, running or being strong. Belief, faith and fight.

“Nothing is impossible in football and that is our idea, our philosophy.
