Mauricio Pochettino feels Tottenham losing 'soft' tag

"I think we're living in different realities because, with all the circumstances, Tottenham deserve big praise to be in the position that we're in at this moment of the season. There was a 10-point difference between Tottenham and us two weeks ago and now it is four points", Emery added.

"What we need is your passion. It's going to be tough on Saturday but we believe we can deliver a good job".

A 2-0 defeat at London rivals Chelsea, following the 2-1 loss at Burnley on Saturday, means Tottenham's comfortable third position now looks under threat.

All nice enough comments on the face of it but Pochettino is actually 47 tomorrow - the same age as Emery.

I am thinking only about performance. It was a conversation [with Dean], no?

Mauricio Pochettino has come to the defence of captain Kane despite the Tottenham captain appearing to headbutt Cesar Azpilicueta during Wednesday's defeat to Cheslea.

Kane was not punished at the time and, as the incident was seen by officials, no further action will be taken. "I went to the gaffer's office and told him I didn't feel comfortable and wanted to leave for Germany", Son told Standard Sport. He is a player that cares about the club, the team and the result.

The Blues are now in sixth place in the Premier League table and three points behind Arsenal with a game in hand. We know and all the people know that we need to play better if we want to win.

"The most important thing for me is if the player can be OK for tomorrow and has the desire to play".

And Pochettino says he saw nothing wrong with Kane's actions. "It's unbelievable, but that's the era we're living in".

"Of course, we are going to try and win the game because it's so important for the fans. That is no doubt and there is no debate".

"[Winning the title] was hard after the Burnley defeat and after Chelsea it's almost impossible".

Asked if he was concerned, Pochettino said: "I am not afraid". "But we were so close".
