Mauricio Pochettino makes a big claim about Spurs and their Premier League rivals

Now, people who watch the Premier League will be aware that Tottenham have been the form side of late. The Lilywhites have brushed all opponents aside but yet sit four points below Chelsea in the race for the Premier League title.

Yes, they have improved drastically over the last few years and a lot of that is down to the stern leadership of expert tactician and manager, Mauricio Pochettino.

But, this does not excuse some of the rather silly comments that have left the Argentine's mouth regarding Spurs and their new found status.

In an interview with Cadena Ser, Pochettino compares the north London outfit with the rest of the division's big boys and his comments spark some debate.

"I would love to be here for as long as possible because it's a club with history, a club that is the most popular in London, more than Arsenal and Chelsea. I'm delighted here.

"Tottenham is a historic club at the same level as Manchester United and Liverpool."

Maybe a tad too far on the praise. The likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen may have lit up the league this season but to say they have eclipsed their rivals is a little bit farfetched.

Twitter picked up on the comments and dealt out some opinion on the matter:

The claims were a bit overzealous and got the treatment they deserved but one thing is for sure, Spurs are a team on the way up.

Pochettino has created an exceptional young team capable of claiming major honours and this weekend, they have a chance to book their ticket to the FA Cup final as they face off against Chelsea.

Tottenham Hotspur v AFC Bournemouth - Premier League

England's two finest do battle at Wembley in what is sure to be an enthralling game and at this current moment in time, following two consecutive 4-0 wins, high-flying Spurs may be the favourites.

The Blues were outdone by Jose Mourinho's Manchester United in their last game and with key man Gary Cahill likely to miss the fixture, Antonio Conte's side may succumb to the irresistible force that is currently Spurs.
