Spurs can stay in title race: Poch

London, Feb 3 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 2/3/2019 12:22:50 PM IST

Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham have what it takes to remain in the title race for the rest of the season.

Spurs moved up to second in the Premier League after a 1-0 win over Newcastle on Saturday thanks to Heung-Min Son’s late goal.

It leaves Tottenham four points behind leaders Liverpool and one ahead of Manchester City in third, although they have played one more game than both their rivals.

Pochettino says there is no reason why Tottenham cannot keep pace at the top of the table until May.

“We don’t need to be in some position like today to convince ourselves about our capacity, our potential or the possibility to win. We always believe in ourselves,” said the Spurs boss.

“We are there because we believe in ourselves. Then it’s if we are capable to fight until the end, to keep our position or to be close to our opponents and fight to be champions. Today, we are there because we deserve to be there. We will see what happens in the future.”

It will take some effort for Tottenham to claim a maiden Premier League title, given the fact they have lost six games so far.

But they have got themselves into second place by winning the rest, breaking the Premier League record for most consecutive games without a draw - 29 going back to last season.
