Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has admitted his team’s title chances are fading fast after their 1-1 draw with West Brom.

Spurs were disappointing at Wembley, where they struggled to create clear-cut chances and needed Harry Kane’s late equaliser to rescue a draw.

It left them 10 points behind Manchester City ahead of the Premier League leaders’ away match against Huddersfield Town on Sunday.

And Pochettino admitted during his post-match press conference that Tottenham now have it all to do if they are to challenge for top spot this season.

Pochettino said: “Yes, it’s true. The gap now is 10 points. It’s massive in the Premier League.

“But now we need to be focused on improving ourselves and be more consistent here at Wembley.

“We’re disappointed to drop two points today. It’s difficult to explain why we didn’t win the game.

“If you saw the stats, we only conceded two shots on goal. I think the team created a lot of situations and possibilities to score. Our performance was enough to win but we didn’t.”

Pochettino again left out Danny Rose and selected Ben Davies, increasing speculation that the England left-back could leave the club during the January transfer window.

He confirmed Rose is fully fit, saying: “He was training, like every other week.”
