Spurs are now alone in second place in the table, slightly ahead of Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool, but nine points behind league leaders Chelsea.

"Like all the games, Middlesbrough and now Liverpool, every game is important because always you play for three points".

England worldwide Rose, an integral part of a Tottenham defence which has conceded only 16 league goals this season, limped off in the 0-0 draw at Sunderland last week and early reports suggested he faced a lengthy layoff.

One of the biggest questions about Spurs heading into Saturday's game is tactical. He is very optimistic, we are happy and you will see.

A James Milner penalty and Danny Rose second half goal saw the fierce Tottenham and Liverpool rivalry end in a stalemate.

"He is very positive, we are very positive, ' Pochettino says".

Spurs have had a frustrating season in terms of injuries.

"We want to build the gap on Liverpool and if we beat them next week then we go seven points clear of them". It is important we have Lloris, captain of France, maybe who can give better advice.

The Premier League title challengers, who face Liverpool away on Saturday, could also have central defender Jan Vertonghen back in training as early as next week after the Belgian's continued recovery from an ankle injury.

"It's a very good point - to achieve big things the players need to dream and to show commitment with us". This year we've had another year of playing together - we know each other better on and off the pitch - and we have a better relationship.

"He is very young and every time (he plays in) different positions it doesn't affect him in his performances".

Tottenham's match at Liverpool kicks off at 5:30 p.m. (12:30 p.m. ET) this Saturday, and will be broadcast live on BT Sport 1 in the United Kingdom and NBC in USA.
