Mauricio Pochettino reacts to talk of Tottenham winning title

Mauricio Pochettino addresses talk of Tottenham Hotspur winning the Premier League title

Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham Hotspur have a strong enough squad to fight for the Premier League title this season after Monday’s 2-1 win at Watford.

The north London side edged into a first-half lead courtesy of Erik Lamela’s brilliant individual goal before Nathan Ake was sent off for a dangerous challenge.

However, the Hornets could have taken the lead but were denied a winner by goal-line technology before substitute Son Heung-min netted a back-heel in added time.

Spurs have won their last three Premier League games following a 2-1 defeat by Newcastle United at White Hart Lane earlier this month, boosting their title hopes.

Speaking to BBC Sport following Tottenham’s last-gasp win at Watford, Pochettino addressed growing talk of the north London side winning the Premier League this season.

“In football a lot can happen the most important thing is we believe, we have a strong squad to squad to fight for it,” Pochettino said.

Spurs are four points behind new Premier League leaders Arsenal following Monday afternoon’s win.
