“I’m very proud because it was a really tough game for us,” Pochettino told BBC Sport. “We showed great character and I’m very proud and pleased because the performance in the second half was very good.”
“This win is massive for us – we have to be there if Chelsea fail and we are there. We are fighting for the Premier League.”
“When you reduce the gap to seven points it’s completely different to 10 points – we just have to be there if Chelsea fail and want to be there until the end of the season.”
Tottenham faced injury woes at the Turf Moor as both Victor Wanyama and Harry Winks had to be subbed right befire half-time.
