Mauricio Pochettino tells Tottenham players to forget about Premier League title

Mauricio Pochettino tells Tottenham players to forget about Premier League title

Tottenham's Argentine forward Erik Lamela came on for his first appearance in 13 months after injury and set up Harry Kane to smash home a late reply. He has been taking part in full training and played a reserve game against Chelsea Under-23s earlier this month.

"It's very good news because he is in contention for tomorrow", Pochettino told a news conference on Monday.

"I think it's so important because we have a very busy schedule ahead". Like another time, he understands perfectly that we are caring for him.

Spurs remain without Toby Alderweireld and Victor Wanyama, while Erik Lamela looks to build his fitness after a long spell out of the team.

Will Spurs have too much for the 2015/2016 champions?

"We did not play in the way we normally play".

Horst Seehofer, the Bavarian prime minister and head of the CSU, said an alliance with the SPD was "the best option for Germany". An Emnid survey for the Bild newspaper yesterday showed that 52% of Germans were in favour of a repeat grand coalition.

Spurs, meanwhile, have now lost three Premier League away matches on the spin for the first time since March 2014 and will be 16 points of leaders Manchester City if Pep Guardiola's men beat Southampton on Wednesday.

"And we need to assume and accept that our reality today is to try and be competitive again and win games if we want to be fighting for the top four".

"We have the same points as last season in the Premier League, and we were fifth or fourth, but we were out of the Champions League - and in this season we finished first [in the Champions League group] against Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Apoel, and we have the same points [in the league]", he said.

"We deserved to win, but we moved the ball so slowly in the first half", lamented manager Mauricio Pochettino, who conceded that the "massive" points gap to Manchester City was unlikely to be bridged.

"In time you never know, you can win a title when sometimes you don't expect it, or sometimes when you expect it".

Matt Le Tissier has said that Tottenham should have made the Champions League their priority before their 1-1 draw with West Brom this weekend.
