Pochettino believes Tottenham can get even better as the title race hots up

first_img1 Tottenham Hotspur players celebrate scoring against Bournemouth Mauricio Pochettino has warned Tottenham’s title rivals his players will only get stronger during the run-in after Spurs dispatched Bournemouth 3-0 to keep the heat on Leicester.Harry Kane scored twice at White Hart Lane, the first after 44 seconds, and he then set up a third as Christian Eriksen completed a comfortable victory.It means the gap between Tottenham and Leicester is back to five points, following the Foxes’ win at Crystal Palace on Saturday, but Pochettino’s men are now free of distractions, having been knocked out of the Europa League on Thursday.“It’s true we go into a different period now to recently,” Pochettino said.“After the international break we’ll play one game every week, and we’ll have time to prepare games in a different way, to training, to improve and do a lot of things that were impossible before.“We are in a moment where we need to see our future in a very good way. It’s important to keep working hard and fight in every game.”last_img read more
