Thibaut Courtois insists Chelsea have been paying little attention to Tottenham’s stunning run, but concedes the Blues would sleep easier if their closest challengers dropped points in the title race.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side are four points adrift of the Premier League leaders after embarking on a brilliant nine-match winning streak, their latest success coming against north London rivals Arsenal at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
“We never look at Tottenham. Of course we want them to drop points but the most important thing is to look at ourselves,” he told the club’s official website.
“With Southampton at home and Everton away, Tottenham probably thought we would drop points, so to win both games is very significant.
“Now we just have to win our home games, that will be very important.”
