Spurs are currently sitting second in the table but they are still five points behind surprise leaders Leicester City, who have suffered just three defeats all season.

The North London club are undefeated in their last three Premier League appearances with the most recent outing an impressive 3-0 victory over Bournemouth, where England international Harry Kane grabbed a brace and an assist.

Pochettino’s men are doing their best to put the pressure on the Foxes but the leaders continue to push on, having won four of their last five matches by a 1-0 scoreline.

Next up for Tottenham is a tricky trip to Liverpool, who are chasing a European finish, on Saturday and the Anfield visitors could cut the gap to the leaders to just two points with a win.

Leicester take on Southampton at the King Power Stadium a day later and any slip-up would add another twist to what has already been a topsy-turvy season.

Spurs will be aiming for the maximum 21 points on offer from the remaining seven games and Pochettino has sent a rallying call to his troops ahead of the trip to Anfield.

“We need to fight. We have seven games and it’s important to fight until the end of the season, with the possibility to achieve good things,” he said. “One is the possibility to win the title and the other is to finish in the top four, which is important for us.”

Tottenham have failed to beat Liverpool in the last six meetings with the most recent encounter ending in a 0-0 draw back in October at White Hart Lane.

However, Spurs are full of momentum at the moment and they will be confident of picking up all three points with in-form Kane fresh off his goalscoring exploits for England against Germany.

Dele Alli, Danny Rose, Kyle Walker and Eric Dier all played for the Three Lions over the recent international break and punters may decide to use their free bet on the quartet continuing their impressive form against the Reds.
