  • Pochettino taking it'step by step as Tottenham plan title challenge

The Reds are four points clear of champions Manchester City at the top of the table and remain unbeaten after 17 Premier League games this term.

"But we enjoy the challenge and we enjoy these types of moments where we haven't achieved something yet and we are working towards it".

"We did really well so far and we have to do even better from now on, because you can see all the other teams are doing really well".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp received an injury boost ahead of the team's Boxing Day fixture against Newcastle.

Earlier in the campaign Manchester City and Chelsea scored just twice against Newcastle, while Manchester United beat NUFC 3-2.

Everton took the lead with Theo Walcott's first league goal in four months, but, after Gylfi Sigurdsson briefly made it 4-2, they fell apart. Nobody can feel safe, nobody can feel out of the race or whatever. It's not a time to think about it.

Tottenham's Pochettino - Team won't be distracted by Manchester United speculation
I accept the rumours are positive and negative. "I think his performance at Tottenham is very big". "We need to do a big match and I think it will more hard than the first", Emery added .

Although Pochettino maintains that Liverpool and City are the "real" contenders, he said Tottenham can make it a three-horse race for the title. A lot of teams are in whatever you call the title race and that is how it should be.

@Alistairmann01: This time past year, with his team residing in the top six, Sean Dyche said he was happy that Burnley supporters were dreaming about the possibility of European football.

"Being unbeaten in the league until December is not something I had too often in my life". Every year, there are Premier League games on Boxing Day. On both occasions it was Liverpool, in 2008 and 2014. In 2008/09, Manchester United won the title; in 2013/14 it was Manchester City.

"You look at the players that he's worked with for a consistent period of time, I think they've all got better and are now playing at higher levels". There is coming a monstrous number of games still and it's really important always that we can react, but as long as we can react it's all goodIf something will dramatically change then we need to have a look, that's all.

Marco Silva would struggle to pick anyone in a Toffees shirt who had a good game, but his goalkeeper had something of a shocker it has to be said.

"We have to keep together and realise how we achieved results before".
