Mauricio Pochettino sends title race message to Chelsea
Mauricio Pochettino tells Chelsea that his Tottenham side are ready to give their all in the title race
Mauricio Pochettino has told Chelsea that his Tottenham side are ready to give their all as they look to catch the Blues in the Premier League title race.
The Tottenham boss watched his side slump to a disappointing 4-2 loss to Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley on Saturday as Antonio Conte’s men kept their hopes of sealing a domestic double this season alive.
Tottenham now turn their focus back to the Premier League as they look to close down the four-point gap at the top of the table before the season is out.
And Pochettino has insisted that his team will do whatever they can to give themselves the best chance of catching Chelsea.
Speaking to BBC Sport after Saturday’s FA Cup loss, Pochettino said: “Only now we can look forward. We are four points behind them and we will try to win our next game.
“I am not worried. The team is strong, we are focused. We were competing today with one of the best teams in Europe. Did we deserve more? Sure, but that is football.”
Chelsea take on Southampton at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night, while Tottenham travel to Crystal Palace on Wednesday as they look to keep pace with the Blues.
