― Reuters picLONDON, May 1 ― Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said his team can still win the Premier League for the first time after what he called a deserved 2-0 win over bitter rivals Arsenal yesterday.
"Of course I am so happy, but our challenge and our aims is to win, not only to beat Arsenal but to beat all 19 teams that play against us in the Premier League". "You can't be going out of the Champions League as early, and you need to be winning trophies, the FA Cup - that's what will take them to the next level, that's what Chelsea did".
Spurs, clearly the better side, missed two excellent chances in the first forty-five minutes although Arsenal came into the game in the last 15 minutes as Aaron Ramsey and Alexis Sanchez exerted their influence. Spurs have overtaken us. The Blues could drop three points in the four games remaining and still claim the title but Pochettino insisted that the race was not over just yet.
And while Wenger was disappointed with the loss, he played down the significance of Spurs' recent improvements, before prematurely walking out of his interview with Sky Sports. "Then, if you add to that that they need points to stay in the race and we need points to climb or to make us safe", Bilic told the club's website. "I am so calm as we have four games to play and now is important to be focused and to try to reduce the gap to Chelsea". If we can win on Friday we will move to within a point and lets see what theyve got.. To win against Arsenal in the last derby at White Hart Lane, it was so emotional for everyone. I think they were fantastic.
"It was the flawless day to put on a performance and I'm very proud of it". We are four (points below Chelsea), with four games to play.
Kane said: "We obviously wanted to finish the last north London derby here on a high note and we did that". To win away against Everton is not easy and it was a great result but we have to continue in this way - go step by step.
