Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino hits back at critics

Hazard almost set up N'Golo Kante for Chelsea's fourth goal of the evening on a lightning-fast counter-attack, but the France international's final product was lacking and parried away by Forster.

Conte, already a favourite at the ground where two seasons ago Jose Mourinho held sway, is aiming to emulate Chelsea predecessor and compatriot Carlo Ancelotti by winning the double in his first year in charge.

Hugo Lloris insists Tottenham still believe they can win the Premier League despite the shattering blow of their FA Cup semi-final defeat against title rivals Chelsea. "He's in Doha (playing for Qatari club Al Sadd) and he was a Barcelona player - he's my enemy", the former Espanyol coach said with a smile.

"To win in England these days is not easy".

"We've got a big game this weekend, a hard game [at Everton]".

Chelsea travel to Bournemouth on Saturday knowing victory will leave them no more than 15 points away from the Premier League title - and if Watford springs a surprise against Spurs earlier that day, the target could be even less.

"It will remain a good season. For me, it will be a great loss next season to lose a player like this".

"The mentality is fantastic - to win always. This is a crucial week for us".

Chelsea continued their march toward the 2016-17 Premier League title with an impressive 4-2 win against Southampton on Tuesday night at Stamford Bridge.

Former Spain midfielder Xavi has said the 21-year-old is the kind of talent his previous manager at Barcelona, Pep Guardiola, would be keen to sign for Manchester City, but Pochettino brushed off his assessment.

"I think that in that moment we have had a really important test, psychological test".

Mauricio Pochettino has told Football.London that anyone accusing Tottenham Hotspur's players of not being winners is wrong.

Claude Puel's men took confidence from the equaliser and looked impressive for the remainder of the first half, although they still went into the break behind. "To become a real power in the future".

"We care a lot about the club and now we must focus on the present to try to help the team and club to be there if Chelsea drop points". "We have reached the final of the FA Cup but the other competition is totally open".

"The players deserve full credit and (you should) remove that idea because it's not true".

Set-piece woes were again to the fore as Davis had a drive deflected wide and Conte sent on John Terry to a rapturous reception in an attempt to restore on-field calm.
