Mauricio Pochettino dreaming of Premier League glory

Tottenham coach Mauricio Pochettino insists his squad are still dreaming of winning the Premier League despite sitting fifth in the table.

Spurs, 26.00 to lift the title, came close to winning the league last season when they challenged Leicester City for the crown.

However, they took their foot off the gas towards the end of the campaign and eventually finished third, 11 points behind the Foxes with Arsenal taking second spot.

Pochettino had been hoping to compete on all fronts this season but Spurs were dumped out of the Champions League although they did enough to qualify for the Europa League.

A miserable run of form in October saw them go seven games without a win but they have since recovered and are now aiming to close the gap on league leaders Chelsea. Pochettino believes Spurs are well equipped to go all the way this year.

He told Sky Sports: “It is our dream to win the Premier League. It is our premier competition. For us, it is our first step. “I am very happy here – me and my staff as well as my family.

I think we find that we are in a very good place to ensure we can work hard. It is a big club with lots of supporters and it is a fantastic club to achieve big things with.

“We need to work hard because teams like Chelsea, Liverpool, Man City, they have all improved.

It is true that the Premier League is tougher than last season because all the big teams are improving their squads, but we are confident in ours.”
