Loads of Tottenham fans have been reacting to some comments from Moussa Sissoko, who has insisted the Lilywhites are in the title race.
It seems quite ridiculous that the title race is being largely portrayed as a two-horse race, especially considering Tottenham were ahead of one of those horses before they played two games in the space of four days.
This could of course work to Tottenham’s advantage, and Sissoko says they are “not far” from the two favourites.
Pl>ymaker FC Exclusive: Jermaine Jenas reveals he would have snubbed Tottenham for Arsenal if they’d come knocking in 2005…
“We are not far,” he told The Telegraph. “If people want to talk about Liverpool and Man City then it’s better for us. We can follow our way in… how can I say it in English?”
“Ah, yeah, we will be like that,” the Frenchman agreed after being asked if Spurs are flying under the radar.
“Under the radar, I like that – and try to win and see where we are. For me, I prefer that. It means we can just do our job. We will fight to the end and anything can happen.
“And yes, I think we can win the league because we have a good team.”
Sissoko has gone from zero to hero in north London, as the former Newcastle man spent his first two seasons in a white shirt crumbling under the pressure of his £30m price tag.
He is now a very popular figure inside Wembley though, and Pochettino clearly loves his work rate and versatility.
That said, talking about being under the radar is probably not the best way to stay under the radar, and plenty of fans have been reacting to his comments.

Incoming loss to Leicester then. Everytime our players suggest we can win the league we lose the following game 😅

Surely part of going under the radar is that no one mentions the radar or that we could go under it?
