"They are feeling the possibility to write history and it is important to know this".

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has claimed that his side have learnt from the mistakes they made last season and will fight until the end as they try to usurp Chelsea, who lead the Premier League standings. Tottenham is not building now in an artificial way.

England boss Gareth Southgate now has this embarrassment of riches from Spurs and a core from which he can build a stronger England team.

"Tottenham is very genuine, it is a very natural process and it is so exciting because it is unique in the world".

Some of that is true, some of it is not. It has taken time for the players to fully adopt Pochettino's philosophy but now they have, they are flying. It is undoubtedly one of the most handsome goals of the year.

On the club's future, the 23-year-old said: "The fans are very happy with us and our work, the players are giving everything, we have a fantastic manager who's also young, with young players, then with the stadium".

Harry Kane hopes Tottenham's ruthless streak can bring Chelsea's double dream crashing down. Money has, of course, been brought in through sales, but sizeable and sustained spending has undeniably been the driving force behind Chelsea's rise since 2003.

Spurs may be first and foremost a team, but it is always good for confidence when key players hit top form at the same time.

"We are ruthless at the moment".

"It could be a big thing psychologically", Kane told British media.

Such a result would propel Conte's men into next Tuesday's Premier League game at home to Southampton with renewed confidence and the knowledge they could deliver a second psychological blow by pulling seven points clear of their closest challengers with a win 24 hours before Spurs make the hard trip to Palace. Though they might be somewhat unhappy with a one-all draw against Anderlecht. Last season, Chelsea had no pressure in 10th place and you play calm, you are happy.
