Tottenham Hotspur are currently enjoying their best ever start to a Premier League season after 17 games.
The Lilywhites currently sit in third, behind the unbeaten Liverpool, and the league holders Manchester City.
Unfortunately, it is difficult for Spurs to keep up with those two clubs in a financial sense, as they spend hundreds of millions on their squads.
Pochettino has splashed a net sum of just under £30m since arriving at Tottenham, showing just how much Spurs are punching above their weight.
However, they still remain with an outside chance of the title, and will be happy to slip under the radar for as long as possible.
A good Christmas period could see Tottenham really force their way into the title fight.
Pochettino was asked at his press conference whether the Premier League was a two horse race, and if his side had any chance of getting amongst it.
He was seemingly happy to keep Spurs out of the direct conversation for now.
He said (Football London): “They are the two big candidates to win the league. We are behind with some gap. Then there are Chelsea, Arsenal, and United.
“Of course there is still a long way until the end of the season. It is normal for people to consider Liverpool and Man City the two big candidates to win the Premier League.
“Today it’s impossible to guess if we are going to have a chance to fight for the title. I think the most important is the belief and fight to compete in every single game and be there. It’s important to be there until the end.
“It’s still early to talk about if we are a candidate or not. We are in a good position, a position to give us a chance to fight for the title. In the same way, we are involved in all competitions and it will be tough.”
