Seventh straight Premier League victory for Tottenham, as they thrashed Bournemouth 4-0 at White Hart Lane, to cut the gap between them and Chelsea to four points. No wonder Mauricio Pochettino practically wished Manchester United good luck in today’s game against Chelsea.
The pressure is on Chelsea to win at Old Trafford and that will be very tough for them. It will be fantastic if after that game the gap is still four points
the Tottenham manager said, having seen his team do something the Spurs had not done in exactly half a century, pick up a seventh consecutive win in England’s top flight.
Our job was to get the three points. Now if they [Chelsea] fail, we are there. Four points is still a lot. They are the favourites and they are on the top. We are fighting for ourselves and to be there and play for the top four
Pochettino told reporters after yesterday’s game, which Tottenham pretty much put to bed with two goals in the first 20 minutes by Moussa Dembele and Heung-Min Son, before Harry Kane and Vincent Janssen added the cherries on top in the second half.
For the second consecutive season we are there and it’s fantastic for the club
the Argentine manager added, keeping his fingers crossed, hoping Chelsea will drop points today against Man United.
