Pochettino: Spurs aiming to be a ‘realistic contender’ for Premier League title

Mauricio Pochettino has declared that Spurs are aiming to be a realistic contender for the Premier League title.

The former Southampton boss has guided Spurs to third place in the Premier League so far this season as the London club look to keep pace with Manchester City and Liverpool at the top.

“We are there in third. Sunday will be key to win the three points will be tough though. They are a good team with a good manager and for us, it is key to win the three points to be involved until the end,” said Pochettino.

“That’s our objective to be realistic contender and have the possibility in the last five games to be there and make it possible.”

Spurs are currently seven points ahead of 4th-placed Chelsea, but have had to deal with some injuries to key players in the last month.

Dele Alli and Harry Kane are both ruled out until March at the earliest. Since they have been missing, Spurs went out of the League Cup to Chelsea and exited the FA Cup at the hands of Crystal Palace.

Pochettino managed to halt the decline, however, and Spurs have won their last two league games at home to Watford and Newcastle.

Spurs play Leicester City at Wembley this weekend.
