EPL: Pochettino speaks ahead of Chelsea, Tottenham clash

30 March, 2018, 00:38 | Author: John Swanson

Mauricio Pochettino trusts Tottenham's players to prepare properly for their Premier League clash with Chelsea on Sunday, despite the temptation of watching the heavyweight bout between Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker.

The England striker damaged ligaments in his ankle in a game against Bournemouth earlier in March. "I think when you play this type of game, I think the pressure is for both teams", Pochettino told a news conference on Thursday. I think it is hard now to say yes or no, to be involved or not in the game. If not this weekend, maybe next weekend, but the most important thing is we are so positive about his recovery.

The British press soon speculated about the striker's injury and said he would not return in time for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation, which kicks off on June 14.

But just three weeks later, Pochettino is hinting at a shock return for Kane, who is apparently recovering incredibly well. "After Bournemouth everybody believed it would be a long period out, but the resolution has been fantastic", the coach said. Spurs now sit in fourth in the Premier League table and have the chance to extend their lead over fifth place Chelsea to eight points.

Any game against Chelsea is a huge tie for Tottenham, yet Sunday's game carries huge importance for both sides.

Pochettino also commented on Toby Alderweireld's fitness: "Like always, with the squad, we need to decide first of all the starting XI and then the players that will on the bench".

Pochettino, who ranks Spurs' rivalry with Chelsea on a par with Arsenal, does not think it is a winner-takes-all game. "It is not a decisive game that is going to put you in one or another position. but obviously it is important for your confidence, your motivation". Arsenal and Chelsea always are tough games, because they are derbies and, for me, it is a similar type of opponent. "They are a good team", he added.
