Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino admits they need Liverpool to beat Chelsea tonight.

The leaders are nine points ahead of Spurs but Antonio Conte‘s men have two tough games away at Liverpool and home to Arsenal up next.

Pochettino said: “If we win against Sunderland and Boro we keep the same gap and there’s lots of games ahead.

“We will see what happens. But if Chelsea are able to win both their games it will be difficult to stop them.”
