London: Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham are firmly back in the hunt for a Champions League place after battling back for a 2-1 win over Burnley.
Pochettino's side moved within one point of fourth place, currently occupied by Arsenal, thanks to their spirited showing at White Hart Lane on Sunday. Pochettino believes Spurs are still on course.
Tottenham are four points better off than at the same stage last year and Pochettino said: "We are fighting very close to the top four and that is important. In the Premier League it is very hard to win games. Every game is so tough to earn three points. But it's another step in the right direction," said Pochettino.
"I think our position is good, now we are winning games and we are a little bit closer to the second position. It is not tomorrow. It is not in a few weeks that we finish the league. It's still a long way to the end of the season.
"We are in a position that we can attack the second half of the season and try to push a little bit more," added Pochettino.
