Harry Winks: Do not write Spurs off

Tottenham star Harry Winks insists his team should not be “written off” in the title race as they try to put pressure on rivals Liverpool and Manchester City this weekend.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men are third in the table after 25 games but just five points off the top.

City and Liverpool are tied at the summit although Jurgen Klopp’s men and Spurs do have a game in hand over the reigning champions.

Tottenham have won their last two Premier League games to pile on the pressure and Winks is confident they will maintain their challenge until May.

He told Sky Sports: “We can never be written off, that’s the most important thing.

“We’ve scored a lot of late goals and it shows how much we persevere in a match, and that the manager’s instilled a never-say-die attitude in the lads, and we know the game doesn’t finish until the final whistle.

“If we continue to press the team and try to get the opposition on the back foot until the final minute, we know we’re more than capable of scoring. We’ve done that this season.

“We’re more than capable of challenging. We’ve had some great results against big sides this year, but it’s a long way. There’s a lot of matches to go this season and the table’s fluctuating all the time.”

Spurs, who are as big as 17.00 to win the title, are 1.70 favourites to beat Leicester this weekend.
