Mauricio Pochettino raves about Spurs fans

Spurs fans were excellent at Stoke City on Monday.

Tottenham Hotspur smashed Stoke City 4-0 at the Britannia on Monday night in a win that brought them within five points of Premier League leaders Leicester City.

Harry Kane and Dele Alli grabbed two goals apiece as Spurs sent a very clear message to the Foxes, who dropped two points the previous day by drawing 2-2 with West Ham United.

Very few teams leave the Britannia Stadium with such a comprehensive victory, but there was also a superb performance in the away section as Tottenham fans' passion perhaps played a role in the win.

At 2-0 ahead, the supporters chanted 'Leicester City - we're coming for you' and Pochettino was blown away by the fervent atmosphere.

“Wow," the Argentine said to Spurs' official website at full time. "Our fans were fantastic. They deserve this moment and one more time, thank you very much, their support was incredible.”

It is still out of Tottenham's hands, but Pochettino and co are certainly applying a frightful amount of pressure on the Foxes and time will tell whether Claudio Ranieri's side can cope with it.

Leicester host Swansea City at the King Power on Sunday, while Spurs welcome West Bromwich Albion to White Hart Lane on Monday. After both games, both title challengers will have only three games left.
