Mauricio Pochettino has insisted that Tottenham go into Sunday’s trip at Manchester City full of confidence.
Pochettino’s men beat Watford 1-0 on Saturday and they now sit level on goal difference with Arsenal, one point above Manchester City and five behind surprise leaders Leicester.
The top four play each other next weekend as Tottenham visit the Etihad Stadium while Arsenal host Leicester, and Pochettino believes his side can be confident against Manchester City, whom they beat 4-1 earlier in the season.
“Always confident, always,” Pochettino said. “Because you need to translate the belief to your players, make the players feel that you believe.
“And then it’s football, you can win, you can lose, but you need to believe and now we need to prepare for the next game and ensure that we can be ready.
“Our best game was against City, yes, when we won 4-1.
“I think Saturday against Watford was one of the best games. Maybe only 1-0 but I think if we analyse the game we played very well. I think it was one of the best games.”
