Tottenham desperate to put more pressure on Leicester City

Mauricio Pochettino wants Tottenham to keep piling up pressure on Leicester City after thrashing Stoke City 4-0 at Britannia Stadium on Monday.

Hary Kane and Delli Alli netted Brace each to help propelled Spurs to close the gap on Leicester to five points.

With four games to end the season, manager Mauricio Pochettino wants his boys to keep pressing for the tittle.

“Stoke wanted to win from the beginning. I think we showed our personality, character and good qualities,” he said.

“It was one of the performances that you feel more proud of because the players played with character to deal with the pressure to try to catch Leicester.

“It is never easy but we showed big character. We showed hunger and passion, and we showed we enjoy our game.

“It is fantastic to work with them every day. I feel fantastic and very happy because I have a squad that feels the passion for the game and they deserve the praise and full credit for the season.”

Leicester City dropped two points on Sunday against West Ham United, and Tottenham capitalised on that to sweep Stoke away.

And Tottenham resilient performance was acknowledged by Pochettino.

“The players deserve full credit for this game because it was difficult from the beginning,” he said.

“We are still fighting. Our dream is to fight and put pressure on Leicester and I think it was fantastic.

“The performance and the result. It was a tough game,” he added
