Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino admits his players are finally starting to believe they can win the Premier League title.

Pochettino's men moved up to second in the table after a second-half strike from Kieran Trippier sealed a 1-0 win over Watford at White Hart Lane.

It is Spurs' fourth consecutive victory in the league and means they now sit one point above third-placed Manchester City and five behind surprise front-runners Leicester.

Tottenham have not been so high in the league with 25 games played since 2012 and Pochettino says his team are now daring to dream.

"You can see in their eyes, the feeling, the energy, that they believe," Pochettino said.

"In football belief is the most important word. If we believe, anything can happen. I believe in my squad and they believe too in the way we play. This synergy is very important for the future.

"But it is better not to speak too much, only to show, to work hard."

Mauricio Pochettino believes Spurs striker Harry Kane is at the same level as Manchester City's Sergio Aguero.

Kane added two more to his season's tally at Norwich on Tuesday night, taking him to 15 goals for the season.

The England striker is now three behind Leicester's Jamie Vardy, who is top of the scoring charts, and two ahead of Argentina ace Aguero, whose campaign with Manchester City has again been interrupted by injury.

Today Vardy and Kane show big quality and the same quality as Aguero.

They are all different and come from different circumstances but if today we speak about Aguero, Vardy or Kane they are some of the best goalscorers in the world. We can't hide that.

Today Vardy and Kane are at the same level as Aguero.
