Spurs title chase to go down to the wire

TOTTENHAM'S incredible revolution under Mauricio Pochettino has got them miles ahead of the Premier League pack on points won and money spent.

No individual display epitomised that more than Spurs' resident unsung hero Victor Wanyama, who represents the added steel the Lilywhites have shown this season - especially in game against the top six - since his arrival from Southampton last summer.

"I feel very proud, first of all because the players played their best and they were fantastic", he said. "We are four behind with four games to play".

"We never look at Tottenham, of course we want them to drop points but the most important thing is to look at ourselves".

Chelsea took a step closer to the title by winning 3-0 at Everton earlier on Sunday, but Tottenham are still snapping at their heels - their dazzling 2-0 defeat of north London rivals Arsenal leaving them four points off the pace.

'But we did it past year, beating them at home when they were also on fire and everything'. If we lost, they would be one point behind - that's pressure.

If ever a match demonstrated why Pep Guardiola will end this season without a major trophy for the first time in his managerial career it was surely his Manchester City side's 2-2 draw away to relegation-threatened Middlesbrough on Sunday.

"I'm not surprised because we worked very hard and wanted to win so bad", Wanyama told Sky Sports News.

"We have five games to play and we are out of the title race. I'm buzzing with that, it's a huge result for us".

Arsene Wenger has never finished outside of the top four in any full season at the helm, but his side now face an uphill battle to secure Champions League qualification. "We have to recover from today and prepare for our next games".

Tottenham have done everything possible to increase Antonio Conte's blood pressure, but they might just run out of time. It was the last north London derby at the Lane and that's so special for so many people.

"At the moment I don't see any shift".

A goal by Dele Alli and a penalty from leading scorer Harry Kane kept the gap between Spurs and Chelsea to four points with four matches remaining.

"They are going to go to another club, rather than going to our club". "Let's hope we can make that one special too".
