Strange sensation for Swansea's Carroll ahead of Spurs game

Posted April 06, 2017

Tottenham old boy Tom Carroll admits it will be a unusual sensation trying to dent his former club's Premier League title hopes on Wednesday. They can win or lose but it won't put pressure on them.

And Mauricio Pochettino's side ensured the gap to leaders Chelsea, who beat Manchester City 2-1, will stay at seven points thanks to goals from Son and Eriksen in injury time, as Swansea drop into the bottom three.

Conte, who has previously admitted his outlook on management has been influenced by those painful memories, said he will not be taking anything for granted until the end of the season.

"But I am looking forward to it because it is such an important game".

Christian Eriksen has warned Chelsea that Tottenham remain well and truly in contention for the Premier League title. "Tactically we have had a lot of joy doing that, the challenge is to get support up and around Jordan".

"They are pushing for the title and we are fighting ourselves".

"I hope we have learned, and I think we have learned, from that situation".

"For us, we're battling to reduce the gap against Chelsea - it will be another hard game", Pochettino added.

Spurs go into the game on the back of four consecutive wins in the Premier League, giving them real hopes of a top two finish.

The unhinged celebrations at the final whistle, with Mauricio Pochettino leaping into the arms of his staff as his players roared into the faces of the delirious Tottenham fans behind the goal was indicative.

Tottenham kept their Premier League title ambitions alive by staging an extraordinary late show at relegation-threatened Swansea.

"It will be more open and we just have to be careful not to be too open, as we are playing against a really good offensive side".

"Ideally, we would take three points off them on Wednesday - because that is the most important thing for me - and then they go on and win it". For us it's about being focused and trying to improve on last season in terms of numbers.

"When we played against Liverpool, we arrived into the game in two different ways".
