Pochettino: Chelsea are the best in the league but we believe

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino was trying to keep spirits high before their match against Chelsea later this evening.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino believes that Chelsea are the strongest side in the Premier League this season.

The Argentine coach takes his Tottenham side to Stamford Bridge tonight and he is under no illusions about how tough it will be for them to cause an upset.

However, Pochettino insists that his squad have faith that they can end the Blues' current unbeaten run. 

“For me, Chelsea are the best team so far, a strong team with unbelievable players but we believe in ourselves and our possibilities,” Pochettino told Spurs' official site.

“We need to believe we can go to Stamford Bridge and get the three points and that is our objective. We are confident in our skill and it’s true we’ve had good results away.

“We also need to understand that this is a very tough game. Chelsea have kept clean sheets in 11 of their last 14 games so for us, it’s a good challenge.”

Tottenham head into the game on the back of three wins in a row in all competitions.
