We want the coun­try’s sup­port, Poch

The Star Early Edition - - SPORT -

MAURI­CIO Po­chet­tino wants to feel the rest of the Pre­mier League are be­hind Tot­ten­ham when they take on lead­ers Chelsea to­mor­row night. The Spurs boss thinks his ti­tle chal­lengers can cap­ture the imag­i­na­tion like Leicester did last sea­son fol­low­ing a “nearly per­fect” per­for­mance at Wat­ford. “Maybe we will feel how Leicester felt last sea­son — all the teams were with them and against us,” said the Ar­gen­tine af­ter Harry Kane and Dele Alli scored twice apiece in a 4-1 win. “Chelsea will be a tough game but a good op­por­tu­nity for us to stop them and re­duce the (10-point) gap. It’s im­por­tant for the Pre­mier League and for us.”
