Eriksen warns Chelsea Spurs are still in title race

Eriksen warns Chelsea Spurs are still in title race

Tottenham are seven points behind Chelsea, but Mauricio Pochettino believes that the scheduling has been kinder to his team this season compared with last, as they often play at the same time as their title rivals.

"Every player is different and he wanted to play more, he needed to feel important and I think Swansea promised and provided that a lot", Pochettino told ESPN.

But Dele Alli equalised with his 15th league goal of the season, and then Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen struck in injury time to keep second-placed Spurs within seven points of Chelsea.

Spurs have yet to win a trophy under Pochettino, losing the 2015 League Cup final and falling short in last year's title race, and it has been suggested that they need silverware to back up the progress made under him. "Our opponent is not..." "If you stay in Tottenham, if you win, it's great but, if you lose.it's not a disaster, no?"

Christian Eriksen has warned Chelsea that Tottenham remain well and truly in contention for the Premier League title.

And that gap could narrow even further today, when Chelsea are at home to Manchester City on the same night as Spurs manager Pochettino's side are in action in south Wales.

"At half-time we didn't know their result". "Confidence is still very high going into Wednesday's game".

The 21-year-old had to leave the pitch on a stretcher during Tottenham's 2-0 victory against Burnley in the English Premier League (EPL) on Saturday, after a collision with defender Stephen Ward, reports Efe.

You can not play two games at the same time. Spurs will inevitably go into the game with more confidence especially given Swansea's recent form.

"This is a game where they'll be thinking, "If we want to be champions we have to go to Swansea and win". We are in a good way". "But it is true it will be hard for him to play again this season".

"With Jordan you have to get more bodies in the box to help him, and we did not really do that in the first half against Middlesbrough. And I think we will put ourselves up better than last season".
