Striker Harry Kane is not overly worried by the fact Spurs have missed two opportunities to go top in the space of a week.
Tottenham were 2-1 ahead but could not collect all three points against the 10 men of Arsenal on Saturday which would have moved them top of the table for a few hours at least until Leicester won at Watford later in the day.
It was the second time in a matter of days that Pochettino’s side had spurned the chance to go top for the first time since 1964 after defeat at West Ham on Wednesday – but Kane does not attach any significance to their failure to climb to the summit.
“I don’t think you can read too much into that,” he said.
“We’ve had a tough week with some tough games. Look, a point against Arsenal is not the worst result in the world.
“It still keeps us ahead of them by three points, and we have a good goal difference. We can’t control what other teams do, we can only control what we do and I feel we are playing well. We just have to get back to winning ways against Villa.”
