Tottenham captain focused on top-four fight not title


Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino believes that the title race is still on after his side overcame a strong defensive display by Burnley on Saturday, reducing Chelsea's lead to seven points.

Tottenham became just the fourth top-flight side to win at Turf Moor this season, with a 2-0 victory delivered by second-half strikes from Eric Dier and Son Heung-min.

"We knew it would be tough, we're not delusional about the nature of this division".

"In football all can happen", Pochettino said.

"That's the thing we're still building, we get into really good positions, and it's just finding that final moment, and that's an important part of us continuing to develop as a side".

Trump aides differ over Assad's future after Syria attack
Senator Payne said she agreed there was unlikely to be a political solution in Syria as long as Mr Assad remained in charge. On Friday, senior US military officials were looking more closely at possible Russian involvement in the poison attack.

"Nothing is impossible in football and that is our idea, our philosophy".

Tottenham travel to Swansea the same evening and might even sit one point behind Antonio Conte's men come Saturday, when they face Watford in the early kick-off ahead of Chelsea's trip to Manchester United on Sunday.

Mauricio Pochettino has issued a rallying cry to Tottenham by telling his players Chelsea can still be caught in the Premier League title race.

"Last season there wasn't a problem with our physical condition, the problem was that we switched off in our minds after [drawing 2-2 at] Chelsea, and we conceded second place to Arsenal".

Spurs captain Hugo Lloris went over to Winks to offer his support when the half-time whistle sounded and added: "We hope it's not too serious".

Gorsuch sworn in as Supreme Court justice
It was the second of two oaths - the first was conducted privately in the Justices' Conference Room by Chief Justice John Roberts. It was the longest period a seat has remained unfilled on the Supreme Court since during the American Civil War in 1862.

"There are different goals, Chelsea are striving to win it and got beat today, but they don't think it's a given, Tottenham don't think they're out of it, they'll chase it".

Spurs lost Harry Winks and Victor Wanyama to injury at Turf Moor while Harry Winks and Danny Rose are also sidelined.

"But we have to find a solution to win the game". "That is very good news for us", he said.

Fans of the north Londoners will have been relieved to hear Pochettino play down a link with the Barcelona job after he was photographed with the Spanish club's president Josep Maria Bartomeu last week.

Tottenham have had several players recognised by Gazzetta so far this season, and Burnley's Michael Keane and Tom Heaton have found their way in a couple of times.

Homs governor says U.S. strikes in Syria serve "goals of terrorism"
According to the Observatory, the U.S. strike on the base killed eight members of Syria's armed forces, including a doctor. The Pentagon said it believed the aircraft that carried out the deadly attack on Khan Sheikhun came from the Shayrat base.
