Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that the chance to move to the top of the Premier League table is "a big motivation" for his team this weekend.

Unbeaten Spurs travel to Bournemouth in Saturday's early kickoff, and victory over Eddie Howe's side would move the capital outfit ahead of Arsenal and Manchester City to the top of the pile for the first time this season.

Pochettino has said that his players "are very conscious" of the fact that they can go top on Saturday afternoon, but the Argentine wants full concentration ahead of "a very tough game".

"It's a big motivation for us to finish the game and take the three points to be top of the table. Better motivation is impossible," Pochettino told reporters.

"For that today the motivation was very good on the training ground on the pitch. Our players are very conscious about that and it's a good opportunity to see us at the top of the table.

"First of all we need to win the game, in front we have a very good team and a great manager like Eddie Howe – it will be a very tough game."

Spurs will enter the match off the back of a goalless draw with Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League on Tuesday night. body check tags ::
