Mauricio Pochettino was impressed by the way Spurs cut Leicester’s lead in the title race, calling their 4-0 win at Stoke ‘perfect’.
Having seen Claudio Ranieri’s side draw at home to West Ham the previous day, Spurs stylishly capitalised on their title rivals dropping points for the first time since March 1.
Harry Kane and Dele Alli both netted braces in a mesmerising 4-0 win at Stoke, cutting the Foxes’ lead to five points with four matches of an enthralling campaign remaining.
“I don’t know,” Pochettino said, when asked if Leicester were feeling the pressure. “I am very focused on our team and our job.
“But all can happen in football. The most important thing is that the performance we showed today was perfect. It was a big signal that we are there waiting and fighting.”
Kane had made clear in the build-up Tottenham’s intention to hunt down Leicester, posting a picture of a group of lions on Instagram.
“I think it is a good thing because it shows how the group is, how our squad is,” Pochettino said.
“We can win or not, but the desire and passion we show and how we enjoy the game is fantastic. It is a pleasure to work with them.”
