Tottenham Hotspur find themselves well in the hunt for the Premier League trophy with just 12 games left in the season.

The Lilywhites are currently just five points behind Man City and Liverpool, with a game in hand on the Prem title holders.

Spurs have the perfect chance to make up some ground this weekend, with the fixtures looking as if they favour the North London side.

Tottenham can close the gap to just two points on both title rivals by beating Burnley in the early Saturday kick off.

Liverpool then face a trip to their arch nemesis Man United on Sunday, with the Red Devils in stunning form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Man City, who have played a game more than Spurs and Liverpool, do not feature this weekend.

Come the end of Sunday, Tottenham could actually have the title in their own hands, meaning if they win their subsequent 11 games, the silverware would be theirs.

Pochettino said (Football London): “I think if we want to challenge this type of team, we must win. If you want to win and challenge, you must be focused 200 per cent on that game and don’t think after. The mentality must be that is the most important game, and of course in case we win we’re going to be there, and it’s so important to be there.”
