Mauricio Pochettino’s team are the surprise package of the summer. The London club are yet to make a signing this summer and have gone on to sell Kyle Walker to Manchester City.

This prompted Chelsea boss Antonio Conte to question the ambition of Spurs as the Chelsea manager revealed that whether or not Spurs fight for the title, there’s no pressure on them.

This didn’t go down well with Pochettino who has now replied the Chelsea boss.

“I am not a manager who likes to speak about another club, another manager,” said Pochettino.

“I like to show respect. I expect the same from the people who compete with us.”

He added: “For different clubs who have spent a lot of money, the expectation and pressure is massive. For us it is the same. It is our own pressure and ambition.”

Tottenham have not won the league title since 1961, with their last major trophy being the League Cup in 2008.
