Spurs boss hails big win
Tottenham are in a great position to qualify for the Champions League following the 1-0 win over Brighton, Mauricio Pochettino says.
Christian Eriksen produced a moment of quality in the 88th minute to wrap up a crucial three points, which strengthens their grip on the Champions League places.
The Seagulls, fighting for their lives at the other end of the table, defended with 11 men behind the ball and it looked like Spurs were headed towards a first goalless draw in 68 games until Eriksen came to the rescue.
It was vital that Spurs capitalised on Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United all dropping points over the Easter weekend and Pochettino knows his side are in pole position.
"We are in a position now that is in our hands to be in the top four," he said. "If we are capable of winning the next three games in the Premier League then we will be third.
"I think that is the key, thinking about ourselves and then seeing what's happening next to us of course."
