Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino remains unwilling to talk up his side's pursuit of the Premier League title despite completing a sixth win in a row to go to within two points of leaders Leicester City. Substitute Nacer Chadli and Danny Rose helped Spurs come from behind to beat Swansea City at White Hart Lane which also saw them go three points ahead of Arsenal.
Italian Alberto Paloschi put the Swans ahead after 19 minutes and it was a lead they held until the final quarter of the game as the north Londoners staged a dramatic comeback. Chadli turned in Kyle Walker's shot before Rose took advantage of some poor defending to hammer home the winner.
The result leaves Tottenham second in the table, ahead of rivals Arsenal and hot on the heels of Leicester, who could re-establish a five-point lead if they beat West Bromwich Albion. Pochettino's side meanwhile travel to West Ham United in mid-week and insists his team are not thinking of winning a first championship since 1961.
"We put ourselves under pressure," he told Sky Sports. "The team, has a strong mentality and every game want to win and this is the most important thing. Our opponent is not the most important thing. We have a lot of games ahead, a lot of Premier League games; 11 until the end of the season.
It is a long way to go still. We need to keeping working hard and looking forward and try tom be ready for Wednesday. Nobody speaks about that we believe we can win every game and we will see what happens at the end of the season."
Despite playing the full 90 minutes, Pochettino is yet to comment on the fitness of midfielder Dele Alli who received treatment before the game after kicking the turf during the pre-match warm-up. The England international went down the tunnel before the game in some pain and was seen hobbling as he left White Hart Lane though there is not expected to be any long term damage.
