Sometimes I Just Like To Watch Him – Tottenham Hotspur Star Firm Fan of Team-Mate

Tottenham have learned last season's lessons, says boss Mauricio Pochettino

Howe said, "You need to focus on yourself" and although he said that he could give Spurs credit for their performance, he also believes that his side could have done better in "certain situations", highlighting the number of goals that the side had conceded in the game.

Goals from Mousa Dembele, Son Heung-Min, Kane and Vincent Janssen ensured victory on Saturday and centre-back Vertonghen said: "Every time I come here, I say it was the best game of the season and I have to say it again". If we win next week it might put more doubt in their minds regarding the Premier League.

We are lucky to have the pressure - last season Chelsea had no pressure as they were 10th place. This loss sent them to sixth place and nearly out of contention of a top four finish, a spot that they had within their grasp just two weeks ago.

"With six games to go we have 71 points". There are six finals until now and the end. We want to win the match because we want to pick up the FA Cup, it's one of our goals.

Despite having been barracked with chants of "Judas" during United's 1-0 defeat at Chelsea in the FA Cup last month, Mourinho said victory over his former club carried no special significance.

"We don't know what can happen in the Europa League, so these three points were phenomenal".

The Italian said: "I think that the impact was very tough today, but when you play at Old Trafford it is normal to have this type of impact against a really strong team as United".

"The second reason is they are the leader".

But Pochettino insists his side wasted too much energy focusing on their rivals and now feels Tottenham are more equipped to ensure the title chase continues until the last game of the season.

"If we are able to win I think we must be proud for this, otherwise we must clap another team".

Tottenham and Chelsea have shared the two league meetings in 2016-17.

"Of course it's a different competition so it's hard to say, but it's a big game for us".

"They are feeling the possibility to write history and it is important to know this".
