Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama says they still believe they can win the title. Spurs, who trail league leaders Chelsea by four points, take on London rivals West Ham United on Friday.

A win for the Lilywhites will see them close the gap at the top of the table to just a solitary point. And, Wanyama says their victory over North London rivals Arsenal on Sunday gave them more belief.

"I feel it had a big impact, beating our rivals in front of our fans is amazing," the Kenya international told Sky Sports.

Their focus now, he said, was on their game against the Hammers. "We just want to focus and stay on our feet and dig deep to achieve the best result we can. We will see from there," he said.

"We are taking it game by game. We are really going strong and we want to finish strong. It doesn't matter what happens, we are just focusing on ourselves. We want to keep the momentum going," Wanyama said.

Meanwhile Mauricio Pochettino believes Spurs are already the "champions" of transfer rumours, but he says nothing will distract his side in their pursuit of the Premier League title.
