Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham's Premier League title hopes are now over

Harry Kane scored on his Tottenham return, but the London side's Premier League title hopes suffered a major setback as they were beaten 2-1 at Burnley.

Harry Kane, returning for the first time since an ankle injury sustained in early January, equalised moments later and Spurs bombed forward in search of a victor in the last ten minutes.

Spurs' slip means they could end up eight points behind the Premier League leaders by the end of the weekend, with Liverpool taking on Manchester United on Sunday.

Although they have 11 games left to play, Pochettino believes his side's chances of being crowned champions this year have been well and truly dashed by Burnley.

With their title bid likely in tatters, Pochettino took his frustration out on Dean. "I need to find the reason now that we lost the game, not to find some excuse". We made mistakes on the pitch and I made a mistake after. Maybe we are heroes if we win at Stamford Bridge and beat Arsenal, but it's the same feeling as when we lost against Watford.

Pochettino confronted referee Mike Dean after the clash at Turf Moor and according to The Mirror, the match official is expected to include the outburst in his report to the Football Association.

And then, KL Rahul's dismissal. "We didn't let him get away and he then tried to go over mid-off that was inside the circle". Further clues will come when Langer's team and India meet in a five-match ODI series that starts in Hyderabad on Saturday.

He then went on to admit he made a mistake and apologised for his actions.

"I made a mistake". They fought a lot and deserved the win. At this type of level, if you want to be a contender you have to come here and show your credentials and say: 'We are here because we deserve it and we are going to be real contenders'.

But speaking at his postmatch news conference, he said: "When you feel so disappointed and upset, maybe you sometimes make some mistakes".

"We made mistakes on the pitch and I made a mistake after, I needed to go straight away to my dressing room and wait there, drink some water and be relaxed". But what happened has happened.

Tottenham's Premier League challenge could well be over for another season. It's not normal how I behaved.
