Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino is convinced that his side are still capable of catching Leicester City and winning the Premier League title this season.

Tottenham thrashed Stoke City 4-0 on Monday and reduced the gap to Leicester to five points after the Foxes' 2-2 draw with West Ham United on Sunday.

Pochettino admitted that he was highly impressed with his side’s performance against Stoke and urged them not to take their foot off the pedal as the Premier League season nears its conclusion.

"It was a great game and I'm very pleased with the performance," he told Sky Sports. "We're still fighting. Our dream is to fight and to put pressure on Leicester and the performance and the result was fantastic.

"I feel very proud. Stoke wanted to win the game and we showed personality and character. Maybe this is one of the performances that you feel most proud of because of the character to cope with the pressure. 

"We showed hunger and passion. I have a squad of players who feel passion about the game. They deserve praise and credit for their season."

Tottenham are currently on a six-game unbeaten streak in the Premier League and they will have a chance to add to that run when they take on West Bromwich Albion next Monday.
