Mauricio Pochettino keen to secure third-placed finish for Spurs

(Ah Fat Talk Ball) - Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has praised his team's progress this season and set his sights on leapfrogging Liverpool to finish third in the Premier League.

Spurs are fourth in the table, a point and a place below Liverpool who have played a game more, and Pochettino's side will overtake the Merseyside club if they win their two remaining games.

Tottenham play Newcastle United at Wembley on Wednesday before wrapping up their campaign with another home game against Leicester City on Sunday.

Midfielder Eric Dier will miss the match against Newcastle due to illness, but despite his lack of options in the centre of the pitch, Pochettino is taking comfort from the fact that his team's final two games are at home.

Spurs were beaten at relegation-threatened West Bromwich Albion last time out and their manager said it was understandable for players' levels to drop near the end of the season.
