After Tottenham beat Newcastle on Saturday afternoon, Mauricio Pochettino said they deserve to be involved in the Premier League title race.

The Spurs boss says they will give their all to win the title but that’s if Manchester City and Liverpool falter which is unlikely but not impossible.

Heung-Min Son's late goal handed the north London club three points as they moved five points behind leaders Liverpool who drew 1-1 with West Ham on Monday night.

However, Pochettino spoke of the belief in his team after their narrow win over the Magpies.

"We don't need to be in some position like today to convince ourselves about our capacity, our potential or the possibility to win. We always believe in ourselves," said the Spurs boss.

"We are there because we believe in ourselves. Then it's if we are capable to fight until the end, to keep our position or to be close to our opponents and fight to be champions.

"Today, we are there because we deserve to be there. We will see what happens in the future."

When asked about late match-winner Son, the Argentine replied: "Yes, now he's going to have two days off, but all of the squad, not only him."
