Pochettino: Tottenham can compete for the title
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino believes that his team’s Premier League’s title chances will depend on the level of stability a bit of luck.
Recall that the crushing victory over Everton with the score of 2:6 on Sunday allowed the Spurs to keep four points behind the leader – Liverpool – in the Premier League. At the same time, Tottenham are 2 points behind the 2nd placed Manchester City.
Mauricio still doesn’t consider Tottenham to be among the main favorites of the championship race, but he admits that his team may have chances with an adequate level of stability.
The Argentine is sure that theoretically there are 6 title contenders. Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea are also capable to compete for the grand victory, in addition to Liverpool and City. Nevertheless, everyone understands that it is Klopp and Guardiola’s teams that have the most realistic chances for success. In order for Tottenham to compete with them, the team needs to become more stable.
Pochettino acknowledged that he was grateful to the players for such a great performance. The victory at Goodison Park with such a score speaks about the team’s quality. The Argentine believes that his team was able to surprise many with its performance.
It is hard to consistently score points in the EPL when your team is participating in four tournaments, but this is the reality of modern football and its exertion. If you do not cope with this, then you have no place on top of the Premier League.
