Spurs fans revel in Vincent Janssen's game-changing display against Swansea

Tottenham Hotspur's Argentinian head coach Mauricio Pochettino arrives for the English Premier League football match between Burnley and Tottenham Hotspur at Turf Moor in Burnley north west England

They next face off against strugglers Swansea City while Chelsea will face off against Manchester City.

Spurs' youthful side are still just about in reach of league leaders Chelsea, sitting seven points behind in second place, although few are looking past the Blues for champions as the season comes to a close.

Guardiola, who felt City's performance was better than in Sunday's draw at Arsenal, said: "Absolutely (City were better than Chelsea)".

"It's important to show that we 've learned from last season and that is a good thing", Pochettino said. "Nothing is impossible in football and that is our idea, our philosophy".

"We were missing five players at Swansea who normally start, but the other guys fit in and we're a very strong squad who can beat every other squad in the Premier League". It's so competitive, but if it can happen? "We're still pushing, believing, pressuring Chelsea".

With nine games remaining, Pochettino's second-placed team suddenly find themselves with a chance to put real pressure on Chelsea for the first time this season.

"And Spurs can only do what they can do in the run-in", said John. Teams are now keeping us in mind when they talk about winning the league or finishing in the top four.

Flights have resumed at Atlanta's airport, but stormy weather continues to cause delays for both departing and arriving flights. A lot still needs to play out well to the west and south of Charlotte before we know exactly what is coming our way.

Manchester United are sixth and head to bottom-of-the-table Sunderland aiming to add to their former manager David Moyes' problems.

Having fallen behind to lowly Swansea after 11 minutes, Tottenham appeared to be heading out of the title race.

Spurs have won 12 of their last 15 league matches - scoring 34 goals - and can match the club record of six straight Premier League victories.

The goal means more than the win against Swansea city for Son. "We are professionals and we have to deal with hard times and go again". The belief is fully there that we will stay up.

Pochettino switched to a familar back three at half time against Swansea and it worked wonders so I think we'll see the Spurs boss start with Eric Dier moving back alongside Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen in defence on Saturday.

Clement hopes to welcome back striker Fernando Llorente, who missed the Boro game with an ankle injury. It was unbelievable. In that moment, we realised how fantastic the three points was going to be.

"I'm so happy for him".
