While Tottenham fans might have second-placed United in their cross-hairs, Pochettino is still looking behind him, insisting a Champions League spot is not guaranteed, despite a 10-point lead over Chelsea.

Mauricio Pochettino told PA Sport : “In football until you get or you achieve what you want, never in football is it over until the end. I think we need to keep pushing, winning games and a massive three points against Manchester City. I think it’s still a lot of work to do until the end. You cannot underestimate clubs like Chelsea, Arsenal, different clubs, big clubs that can win every game.”

Looking at the Premier League table and the remaining fixtures, the boss is right to be prudent. Only a prize pilchard of Tim Sherwood proportions would think Spurs were guaranteed anything.

The only absolute certainty is that Manchester City have won the division, not matter what stumbling they may get up to in the final furlong.

Tottenham have 6 more games to complete which is potentially 18 points. Of all our immediate rivals, it is only Liverpool who have one game fewer, perhaps this is something that Mo Salah may have weighing on his mind?

The league games won’t get any easier with sides like West Brom fighting like cornered animals to stay up.

There’s also the very welcome distraction of the FA cup, which could add another 180 minutes to the old Spursometer.

      As much as I’d like share your happiness, I think you need to understand that we can’t see or hear anything that you can, which makes it a bit difficult.

  • Sexy Beast April 13, 2018 at 6:34 pm

    I think that they will be there for the taking second half if we can stay level (hopefully leading) at the break, the last three games they have had will be in their legd second half, expect us to finish the stronger.

    We all presumed that the Citeh game would be a banker for them.
    It’s not anymore.
    We can do this and finish second with a cup.

    I thought the titty thing was done.

    I agree
    I also think that Pochs thinking is to not take anything for granted

  • SeattleSpursGuy April 13, 2018 at 5:10 pm

    Joining Aguero in the physio room are Benjamin Mendy and John Stones, while Fernandinho is suspended. Pep says City are down to ’14 players plus the kids’

  • SeattleSpursGuy April 13, 2018 at 5:05 pm

    Klopp defends Harry for claiming that goal at Stoke: “I know Harry, he’s a fantastic player. He looks like a good guy. If he felt it then he felt it.”

    • Tappaspur April 13, 2018 at 5:36 pm

      Poch vs klopp. My guess is poch wears better shoes.

      • Tappaspur April 13, 2018 at 5:38 pm

        He can also get all the dental work done as klopp has! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

          That was funny. They said he had a virus and he appeared a few days later with Donny Osmand’s teeth

          • Freund or Foe April 13, 2018 at 5:44 pm

            Donny sold his teeth? I though he was doing ok with his Vegas gig?

  • SeattleSpursGuy April 13, 2018 at 5:02 pm

    Guardiola is saying Sergio Aguero is likely not available tomorrow. Every little bit helps.

    • Tappaspur April 13, 2018 at 5:06 pm

    We’ll easily win more than half our remaining games. Its about in how much style do we win them. It would be interesting to see the team poch puts out if win the next four on the bounce.

    • Bruxie April 13, 2018 at 4:38 pm

      Spursy.

      Don’t forget Spursyness.
