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."
