Mauricio Pochettino: Title very hard, but not out of reach

19 Mai 2017

"The right question to ask ourselves is, 'Are we capable to increase, especially in the moments under pressure all together in a big game, the level?'" Lloris said.

"For me, we must move on and finish in the best way this season, still fighting".

Crooks told BBC Sport that he still has hope that Tottenham can go onto win trophies next season, they have to show their ambition by keeping their top players.

"We knew what we had to do". After [this defeat] it's almost impossible.

Meanwhile, league leaders Chelsea face a relatively easy assignment against relegation-prone Middlesbrough on Monday night, where a win would see them take a significant step towards securing Premier League honours.

"We were not capable of doing more and the worst thing was the feeling at 0-0".

"I'm so proud of the boys". Second half we started a little bit sloppy and we conceded a little bit more space.

'I feel calm. But I'm disappointed, of course, that we missed the opportunity to reduce the gap'. Pochettino insisted that the midfielder's omission from the starting line-up did not played a part in the defeat. But for the second year in a row, the team's title bid has faltered in the closing weeks of the season.

"Our strength is in our collective, our squad", he said. Win both and the title is theirs. Football is not about one name, one player. It's very important for us, so I'm so pleased to score such a goal like this.

At the former London Olympic Stadium made famous by the likes of Mo Farah and Usain Bolt, a 10th successive league win for Tottenham would have put them one point behind Chelsea but they stumbled over one of their final hurdles. Chelsea are four points ahead of Spurs and just need two win from four games to seal the title. It looks good on paper, but the way we done it was magnificent. It was great in terms of character and determination.

" You all know now it is more hard to catch Chelsea but we need to try always until the end".

They have a big enough cushion over both Manchester City and Liverpool that second place seems inevitable.
