Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli insists they can upset Man City

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli insists they can upset Man City

There may be a massive 10-point gap between Chelsea and fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, but Lilywhites manager Mauricio Pochettino doesn't believe the top-four race is over just yet with six games left in the Premier League season. "I have to give the ball up, create the chances".

While City will be keen to get the title wrapped up as soon as possible, Spurs have their eye on a strong finish to the campaign as they target second place.

City were knocked out of the Champions League quarter-finals by Liverpool in midweek, with a 3-2 defeat to Manchester United at the Etihad last weekend sandwiched in between.

That takes Kane to within four goals of Salah, who has 29 in the league for Liverpool after joining from Roma in the summer.

"Of course I think and I'm sure that Harry and Christian were agreed to do this, but no one says to me what was going to happen". While both players have consistently proved their worth this season in front of the target, Jesus will be hoping to add to his nine league goals, aided by Leroy Sane and David Silva in attack.

A resurgent Arsenal are just three points behind the Blues and while in theory the two could overhaul Spurs, it is highly unlikely.

"It was also Christian who managed to pick up five yellow cards this season despite never attempting a single tackle, Christian who did the worst free-kick anyone had ever seen while playing for England against Iceland, and who scored that wonderful own goal against Swansea back in 2015".

Talismanic striker and club top-scorer Harry Kane returned to action last week and got himself on the scoresheet under controversial circumstances.

City could have wrapped up the title with a win at home to Manchester United last Saturday but threw away a two-goal lead to suffer their first home loss of the campaign, falling 3-2 to Jose Mourinho's side.

Despite supposedly having an "off season" by his standards, Pochettino is confident that the talent is always there inside Dele waiting to be unleashed. "We need to show ourselves that we can compete". "We'll try and come back next season and do really well".

But who will win the race for the Premier League's Golden Boot?

Danny Rose is out for Tottenham with a calf injury.
