Spurs are ready for title finale says Vertonghen

Jan Vertonghen has backed Vincent Janssen to turn around his Tottenham career after he played a crucial role in the win at Swansea.

The gap between Tottenham and Chelsea is stuck at seven points but the injury list is clearing up.

Eden Hazard declared "we are almost there" as Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte targeted six wins in the final eight games to clinch the Premier League title.

After getting a rare start in Saturday's 2-0 win at Burnley, and leading the line well, the 22-year-old made an important impact off the bench at Swansea last night.

The question, regardless of whether this title race gets away from Spurs, is how far they can grow, not only against the backdrop of investment that is going into the new stadium but also in consideration of the interest that is growing in their best players from Europe's biggest clubs.

"I believe that we can win every game if we play like we did against Swansea - and then we'll see", said Pochettino, whose side host Bournemouth the following week.

"Teams are thinking about us now if they're talking about league wins or top four". The Swans sit in 17th place, just one point above Hull.

Spurs might have taken the lead inside the first 40 seconds when Son was teed up on the edge of the Swansea box, but Federico Fernandez blocked his shot and Alfie Mawson completed the clearance.

One of them, West Ham, have lost five games in a row and their clash with third-from-bottom Swansea has all the ingredients of the trademark "six-pointer". We knew it was going to be a hard game for us and all of them fought a lot to stop Burnley.

"When you put in a cross for someone like Llorente he can cause havoc on his own". Probably you need things like this to get more experience, even though [the result] was not that good. "I am very confident in us". The Kenyan global will be assessed at training tomorrow but I think we'll see him come back in to the midfield alongside Moussa Dembele. "We struggled in that game but the reaction was good and we are there, competing, fighting". If we do this, we will win the title.

"@HarryWinks will continue to be monitored by our medical team during his recovery and will be unavailable for the remainder of the season". "He has a chance, but we are very much looking at him day to day".

Wanyama is struggling to shake off a back injury ahead of Wednesday's game and - with Winks out - it means Eric Dier may have to be pushed out of defence.

The fans in the stands could barely believe what they were seeing, erupting with joy.
