Danny Rose scored a late goal to lead Tottenham Hotspur to a 2-1 win over Swansea City on Sunday, keeping Spurs two points behind leaders Leicester.

With 11 matches to go in the season, Spurs could go on to win their first league title since 1961 when they raised the old First Division trophy.

Despite the fact that the club is enjoying one of their best-ever Premier League seasons, manager Mauricio Pochettino is not thinking about the end result.

Speaking after the Swansea win, Pochettino said no one is thinking of the title at White Hart Lane, but rather taking things one game at a time.

Nobody speaks about the title in our dressing room.

We believe we can win every game and we’ll see what happens at the end of the season.

Now, we need to focus again. We have a strong squad and we will try to manage it in the right way.

For me, it is not important that Arsenal lost. What is important is our own performance and there are still 11 Premier League games ahead.

With the season hitting it’s final stretch, Spurs must deal with a tough run of matches. A match at Upton Park against sixth-place West Ham is followed by the all-important North London derby against Arsenal, which could be a deciding match in the title race.

After the derby, Tottenham must travel to Germany for a Europa League match against Borussia Dortmund, a very tough draw for Spurs. Depending on the results against West Ham and Arsenal, Pochettino may have a decision to make whether to rest his stars for a title fight or go for glory in Europe.
