Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has noted that it’s now almost impossible to stop Chelsea from claiming their fourth Premier League title if they win their next two fixtures against Liverpool and Arsenal.
EPL leaders, Chelsea will be up against fourth-placed Liverpool at Anfield on Tuesday before welcoming their closest rivals Arsenal, who they sit eight points clear of, at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Pochettino fears that Should Antonio Conte’s side take maximum points in both fixtures, the title race could be over.
Pochettino, whose side stopped Chelsea’s winning run in December, said, “If they win both games it will be difficult to stop them.
“We need to be focused on our game. The most important thing is to get the three points for us. And of course we could even be closer to Chelsea then.”
Nevertheless, the Argentine expects his players to remain focused as they face Sunderland on Tuesday and Middlesborough five days later.
He added, “If we win against Sunderland and Middlesborough we keep the same gap.
“We need to feel that the three points are important for them but they are for us too. This is a very important game.”
