Mauricio Pochettino believes statues should be built in honour of Tottenham's players if they win the league.

Such would be their achievement that their manager thinks they should be immortalised forever if they were to pull it off.

Pochettino dreaming

Spurs' planning department have quite enough on their plates as they engineer the club's move to a new 60,000-seater stadium, but they could have even more on their hands if Pochettino's wish comes true.

"If we won the championship, I think that every player would deserve a statue", he said.

Renewed hope

Leicester's 2-2 draw with West Ham has given Tottenham renewed hope of lifting the title, and they can move a step closer with a win at Stoke on Monday night.

Standing in their way are a Stoke side who, according to Potters' defender defender Ryan Shawcross, are determined to thwart Tottenham's efforts to help fellow minnows Leicester win the league.

At present, the only statue at White Hart Lane is a bronze bust of Bill Nicholson in the main reception - the last manager who won the title with Spurs, back in 1961.

Worthy of tributes

There is nothing like the depiction of Manchester United legends George Best, Dennis Law and Bobby Charlton outside Old Trafford, but a Leicester collapse could see a new Holy Trinity of Kane, Alli, and Alderweireld emerging in north London.

Leicester may have their own tribute in mind if they manage to defend their eight-point lead. Regardless, this season will live long in the memory for both teams, regardless of how they celebrate.
