Mauricio Pochettino says he is pessimistic that Tottenham would be able to move into their new stadium this season. "Not for Sunday or Wednesday, but we will see after".

Spurs refuse to lie down in the title race and although they've never been in the box seat, they remain just five points adrift of both sides.

Answering questions at today's press conference, Pochettino said: "He's doing well, fantastic You know him well, we need to stop everyday because he wants to be ahead of his recovery".

The club are committed to playing at Wembley until March 2, when they host Arsenal in the north London derby, after which they have five Premier League games left in the campaign.

Harry Kane will not be fit for either of those games due to an ankle injury, but Pochettino believes the England captain could be back for the trip to Burnley on February 23.

Spurs head into the game looking to make it four wins in a row in the Premier League as they look to keep up the pressure on Liverpool FC and Manchester City at the top of the table.

"For us the most important game is Sunday, but we are disappointed with the Premier League because we aren't getting help because it's clear it's a disadvantage to play with one less to prepare for the Champions League and so hard when you have a clear week".

"If you see him he's almost ready to play but we need to be realistic too and of course in between all the areas to take the best decision".

"That's why our responsibility is to be ready and compete in the best way because I think it's a game that will be decisive".

Pochettino also took the time to address speculation after he was pictured leaving a West End restaurant which Zinedine Zidane and David Beckham had also been eating in.

"But again sometimes the people that go and express their opinion, is they need to have all the info because sometimes when the decision is one or another, sometimes we need to manage many things that people need to be aware of".
