Mauricio Pochettino makes shock admission about Dele Alli

Alli, who has scored eight times this season, said: “I picked up a bit of a knock before but to be fair, I didn’t feel it during the game, I felt good and I think I was just a bit tired towards the end.

“I think we played well and I think we should have had the three points. I think that just shows how well we are doing at the minute. To have Arsenal and to be leaving disappointed with a draw.

“I think it’s a lot of credit to the boys and we just need to keep pushing on and keep getting ourselves up and get ready for the next game now.”

Alli also claims Pochettino’s tough fitness regime will help Spurs get over the line – so long as they don’t believe the hype.

He said: “Everyone knows how many games you’ve got left and everyone knows what’s to play for but it’s important that we don’t get carried away and don’t get too hyped up in it.

“I think it’s just about our attitude, we don’t stop fighting until the final whistle.

“We’ve got great fitness, a lot of credit goes to the sports fitness coaches and, like I say, we don’t stop fighting until the end, so that’s in our favour.”
