Mauricio Pochettino says his Tottenham players “believe” they can catch Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Spurs defeated Liverpool 4-1 at Wembley on Sunday which moved them level on points with second-placed Manchester United and five points behind City.

And Pochettino thanked his players following their performance against Jurgen Klopp’s men.

“I am very pleased. Tuesday in Madrid was an amazing effort and so was this, so thank you to the players,” Pochettino told BBC.

“Our fans were fantastic it was an amazing game and we played really really well. We tried to control the game despite conceding a lot of the ball.

“We were clinical and so aggressive. It is so important. We knew very well that Liverpool would try to play and the plan worked. They are a gerat team.

“The team is starting to build confidence at Wembley. It is important to make this feel like home, it is key for us. It seems like we are starting to show that here.

“It is the third season that we are trying to catch someone. Manchester City are doing very well, they have an amazing squad and one of the best managers in the world. We see what happens, we believe, we will try to catch them. We are focused every day.

“I spoke to Diego Maradona before the game, it was very emotional. He brings very good energy. He is the best player ever in football history.”
