Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino thinks the club's fans can "dream" following their 2-1 victory over Manchester City on 14 February. A late goal from Christian Eriksen gave Spurs a dramatic win at the Etihad Stadium and boosted their chances of an against-the-odds league title win.

Victory in Manchester means Pochettino's men are now just two points behind league leaders Leicester City. The Argentine manager is thrilled with the recent performances of his side but is keen to ensure they maintain their current level of performance.

"We have a lot of younger players and very good senior players and I think the mix is perfect. We need to keep working hard in the same way and prepare for the next game," he said during a post-match press conference, according to The Mirror. "It was a very important moment to share with our fans. It is true our supporters can dream. That is important."

Pochettino suggested the win at the Etihad will give Tottenham's players the belief they need to make a push for the Premier League title. "It was a very important victory. It is always important to build the trust, confidence and belief," he said.

However, the Tottenham boss also admitted there was an element of fortune in their win against City, suggesting referee Mark Clattenburg's decision to award a penalty to the away side was harsh. "I didn't see the penalty, but I understand if Manchester City complain about the decision," he said.

The penalty was converted by Harry Kane and gave the away side the lead. City levelled through Kelechi Iheanacho in the second half before Eriksen scored a well-worked winning goal late on.
