Why Tottenham are NOT title contenders with Liverpool and Man City - Ferdinand

Spurs threw everything forward in search of a goal, while Newcastle were quite happy to sit back and soak up the pressure with the hope of catching the hosts on a break. "With a lot of (adverse) circumstances we are showing we can win in any stadium and against any club. But we are there, we are close, in a very good position and we will fight to the end to be as high as we can".

The Lilywhites endured a torrid time last week after finding themselves dumped out of both the Carabao Cup and FA Cup.

"It was a pity because we had some chances in the first-half and the beginning of the second-half we had two clear chances when we hit the post", said Benitez, who bemoaned the fact one error had cost his side. "For me, that's a very good example".

In contrast to Redknapp's words, Pochettino has expressed his frustration at not being able to add to his squad in January, claiming he did indeed want to make some signings.

Newcastle went into the game having shocked Manchester City with a 2-1 victory in midweek and manager Rafael Benitez was pleased with his team's performance.

"I think that is why the Premier League is the best, it's the most competitive because of the schedules and the fixtures".

"The way they were fighting for each ball, we have to improve a bit on the ball...credit to this group of players because they work so hard that maybe they deserve something more".

After masterminding a sensational start to the season with Chelsea, Sarri has overseen a slump in form in recent weeks.

"That reduces or put us more in the same level like what happened with City".

That's assuming Daniel Levy will even entertain the idea of his top asset leaving the club or if the Argentine coach even wants to leave after this season.

Amid reports the Italian is already in danger of the sack less than a year after taking charge, he was indebted to his old friend Higuain for lifting the gloom around Stamford Bridge.

"I can not tell you if he is ahead of schedule or not".

"We were very patient about the game".

England striker Kane suffered ligament damage in his left ankle during Spurs' defeat to Manchester United last month.

"He's determined to try and recover as soon as possible and be available as soon as possible".
