Mixed emotions for Mauricio Pochettino after Tottenham match Chelsea result

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger expects stadium move to disrupt Tottenham

Mauricio Pochettino has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur are still in the race for the Premier League title after a 2-0 win over Arsenal left Spurs only four points behind Chelsea with four games remaining.

"Also, to close the gap on Chelsea was the most important thing".

Spurs then came out in the second half with even more determination and strength as they scored two goals in three minutes to take all three points. "But we did it previous year, beating them at home, when they were also on fire and everything".

Antonio Conte's side have Middlesbrough, West Brom, Watford and West Brom left to play, but Spurs could reduce the gap to one point given they visit West Ham first on Friday night. We couldn't afford to lose the game today.

Only minutes after Alli's goal, Kane drove past Gabriel on the counter and went down in the box for a penalty.

Chelsea have been top of the league since 5 November, and were 10 points clear as recently as 19 March. I'm quite a recognisable face now - especially to Tottenham fans. To win against Arsenal in the last derby at White Hart Lane,
it was so emotional for everyone.

Pochettino said his players had not watched Chelsea's 3-0 win at Everton earlier on Sunday.

The Spurs boss chosen Kieran Trippier to Kyle Walker, while Moussa Dembele went down to the bench having actually can not get rid of an ankle joint injury experienced versus Crystal Royal residence.

Although older enrollees would get slightly higher tax credits , the credits would not almost compensate for this cost increase. The program was brief - it was suspended after about a year and a half , when the Affordable Care Act was implemented in Maine.

The defeat meant Arsenal will definitely finish below Spurs for the first time in 21 years. Arsenal will finish above Spurs because Spurs will be at Wembley, and Spurs will be at Wembley because they are finishing the building work on a new stadium that will significantly level the playing field with their neighbours.

"Look, the points are the points", he said. Arsenal absolutely have their challenges both on and off the pitch, and I don't mean to minimize them, but Arsenal's also in a much better financial and reputational position to overcome those challenges and maintain the pecking order of North London in the long run.

"We have five games to play and we are out of the title race".

Analysis - Has the balance of power shifted?

Spurs are now on a nine-match winning-streak in the league, which culminated with last Sunday's 2-0 win over arch-rivals Arsenal at White Hart Lane.

With title contenders Chelsea and Tottenham now out of Arsenal's reach, there are two Champions League spots up for grabs as the season nears its conclusion. To not get a reputation as bottlers, and to keep any bad mojo from hanging over them, Spurs must keep fighting, even if a win is impossible. "We have to play more and create more than we did".

Arsenal beat Manchester City 2-1 after extra time in their semi-final, a day after Spurs lost 4-2 in theirs.
