Tottenham Hotspur’s clinical display in Monday’s 4-0 Premier League thrashing of Stoke City showed they are ready to take advantage of any slip up by leaders Leicester City, manager Mauricio Pochettino said.

Second-placed Spurs cut the deficit with Leicester to five points after their latest win but with just four games remaining the North London club, who are looking to end their 55-year wait for a league title, are running out of time.

Pochettino said his players need to believe there was still hope.

“The most important thing is the performance we showed was perfect,” the Argentine told British media. “It is a big signal we are there waiting and fighting.

“We need to believe that is possible. It is good for the competition that we are in behind to try and put pressure on Leicester. I feel very proud.

“In football all can happen and, if Leicester fail, we need to be there. We need to try and reduce the gap. This is our dream.”
