Tottenham Will Die Trying To Qualify For Champions League – Pochettino
Tottenham will “die trying” to qualify for the Champions League, says manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Fourth-placed Spurs’ lead over Chelsea has been cut to two points after taking only four points from their past four Premier League games.
Tottenham host Newcastle and Leicester in their final two games, with the top four assured of a place in the Champions League next season.
“It’s in our hands. We need to die to try to achieve that,” Pochettino said.
“It’s not, ‘we need to play like this, with two centre-backs or two strikers or two keepers’. It’s about the players dying trying to achieve it.”
Tottenham play Newcastle at Wembley on Wednesday at 20:00 BST, before hosting Leicester on Sunday.
