Tottenham Hotspur

Pochettino vows to bounce back

24th February 2019, 01:10 by Michael Holland

Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham will fight to the very end despite dropping crucial points against Burnley on Saturday.

Spurs had a great chance to keep the pressure on Liverpool and Manchester City in the Premier League title race, but it was an opportunity missed as they slipped to a 2-1 defeat against the Clarets at Turf Moor.

Victory for Spurs would have seen them close to within two points of Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the table, but they could now find themselves eight points behind Jurgen Klopp's side, who face Manchester United on Sunday.

It is a huge week for Spurs, who also face Chelsea and Arsenal, and Pochettino was clearly frustrated with his side's failure to pick up a win when they needed it.

"For me, that was the big game," he said."Of course we will put pressure on and try and win because we try to fight to the end. Maybe we are heroes winning in Stamford Bridge and beating Arsenal but it is the same feeling when we lose a game to Watford. It is in our hands.

"We can beat Chelsea and Arsenal but, if you want to make history, you must win these kinds of games. It is not about tactics, or selection. You have to come here and fight."
