Mauricio Pochettino says there are enough points to play for in the Premier League for fans to believe they can win the title.
Spurs moved two points behind leaders Leicester, who play Newcastle on Monday evening, following Harry Kane’s two goals in the 2-0 win over Aston Villa.
Kane opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time and wrapped up the points early in the second half, and with the north Londoners searching for a first title since 1961, their Argentinian boss is determined to remain positive.
He said: “We are in a good position but there’s eight games and 24 points still to play for. It’s a lot of points, still.
“We are in the race and this (win) has been important.
“Our supporters are right to dream and we need to dream, but keep working hard because that’s the most important thing,”
Kane struck the crossbar in the third minute before forcing two saves out of Brad Guzan.
The England man finally broke the deadlock when Three Lions team-mate Dele Alli’s quickly-taken free-kick played in the forward, who fired past Guzan.
The same pair combined for the second when Alli broke free down the left and crossed for Kane, who made no mistake with the finish within three minutes of the restart.
