As long as there’s a chance they can win the Premier League title, Spurs won’t be quitting their fight for it.

Tottenham used a blistering second half to top Manchester United 3-0 on Sunday at White Hart Lane, and manager Mauricio Pochettino hasn’t stopped dreaming.

That’s despite Leicester’s 7-point lead on the table with five matches to play. If the Foxes win three matches they win the PL, regardless of what Spurs manager down the stretch.

Here’s Pochettino, from the BBC:

“We believe and still fight, the motivation is big and massive. We need to try to get points and try to arrive at the end of the season with the possibility to win the title.”

Eric Dier struck a similar note:

“The manager always wants a performance from us and playing the right way and we did that. They made it hard for us but in the second half we were able to sort it out. We will keep on fighting until the end. That’s what everyone expects but credit to Leicester.”

Leicester finishes with West Ham and Swansea at home, then it’s off to Old Trafford to face Manchester United. The Foxes wrap up home to Everton and at Chelsea.

Spurs go to Stoke, Chelsea and Newcastle, with visits from West Brom and Southampton in between.

Is there hope for the White Hart Lane set?
