Mauricio Pochettino: Believes press are creating issues

Mauricio Pochettino has refused to give up on Tottenham’s Premier League title challenge despite a draw at home to West Brom delivering a potentially-decisive blow.

Craig Dawson headed the Baggies level after his first-half own goal had put Spurs ahead – with Pochettino seeing his side hit the woodwork on three occasions.

The 1-1 draw means Leicester can win the title with victory at Manchester United on Sunday as they sit seven points clear of second-placed Tottenham with just three games remaining.

But Pochettino is not giving up on delivering a first title since 1961.

“It is not over,” he said. “The gap is seven points and we have ahead three games.

“It is true that it is very difficult, more difficult than before the game, but we still believe and we are still fighting.

“We have to hope Leicester drop points and we get three points at Chelsea (next Monday).

“It is important to still fight. The objective is still there, it is more difficult than before but the gap with Arsenal and Manchester City (in fourth and third) is five points and we need to keep this gap but it is important to win in case Leicester drop points so we can win the title.”
