Mauricio Pochettino says that he and his Tottenham Hotspur players "believe" they can catch Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table.

Mauricio Pochettino has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur can catch Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table.

Spurs claimed an emphatic 4-1 win over Liverpool at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, with Harry Kane continuing his rich vein of form by bagging a brace.

An ecstatic Pochettino thanked his players following their sterling performance against Jurgen Klopp's men just five days after a 1-1 draw at Real Madrid.

"I am very pleased. Tuesday in Madrid was an amazing effort and so was this, so thank you to the players," Pochettino told BBC Sport.

"We were clinical and so aggressive. It is so important. We knew very well that Liverpool would try to play and the plan worked. They are a great team.

"The team is starting to build confidence at Wembley. It is important to make this feel like home, it is key for us. It seems like we are starting to show that here.

"It is the third season that we are trying to catch someone. Manchester City are doing very well, they have an amazing squad and one of the best managers in the world. We see what happens, we believe, we will try to catch them. We are focused every day."

The result moved Tottenham level on points with second-placed Manchester United and five points behind Man City.
