After his injury-hit team had displayed real character to win 2-0 at Burnley, Pochettino revealed how they had trooped back to the dressing room at Turf Moor to discover that leaders Chelsea had lost 2-1 at home to Crystal Palace.
"He twisted his ankle but we need to see what happened in his ankle on the scan".
Mauricio Pochettino has issued a rallying cry to Tottenham by telling his players Chelsea can still be caught in the Premier League title race.
"Nothing is impossible. The Premier League is tough to play and win every game but it can happen, yes, and our minds must be positive, and try to imagine, and dream, and believe, and give our best".
Spurs' squad depth will however be challenged in the run in as they saw Harry Winks and Victor Wanyama leave the pitch due to injuries, with the latter fearing a season ending broken leg or at least ankle ligament damage.
However, a tactical switch from 3-4-2-1 to 4-2-3-1 paid dividends and Eric Dier and substitute Son struck in the 66th and 77th minutes to secure a fifth consecutive victory.
"We will keep to our philosophy and if we assess the season it is fantastic, very good", he said.
"Burnley are very respected in the league". Maybe it was not brilliant, but it was very professional. "We are there fighting for the Premier League". We won a lot of second balls. "We had to come back after half-time and we got a point after a time that has been so stressful for us".
Former Liverpool star Phil Babb has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur are progressing in the football world under Mauricio Pochettino.
Former Southampton manager Pochettino added: "We knew very well how hard Burnley have made it for other teams here so I give a lot of credit to my team".
"I don't like to talk about what is happening in the changing room, but you could see second half there were some changes in terms of tactics", Lloris said.
Without star striker Harry Kane - injured in an FA Cup quarter-final win over Millwall last month - Spurs looked to Dele Alli and Vincent Janssen to damage Burnley but both were quiet in a tiresome start to the match.
He said: "We don't need anybody to push us to be excited because it is exciting this moment that we are living now".
