Tottenham can win the Premier League - Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino is of the belief that his Tottenham team is capable of winning this season's Premier League.

Spurs moved into third place on the table thanks to a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Watford at Vicarage Road on Monday night, further strengthening their title hopes.

After watching Son Heung-min score a late winner following earlier goals from Erik Lamela and Odion Ighalo, Pochettino spoke of Tottenham's chances of going top by season's end now that they sit four points behind leaders Arsenal.

"Can we win the title? The numbers reflect that it is possible but the most important thing for us is to try to keep inside our thoughts, try to win every game and to keep working hard," Pochettino said.

"We are very young, the youngest squad in the Premier League, and you need to show your strengths in all the league.

"But to speak about the title - it's more important to keep working hard and showing our maturity."
