Tottenham need the victory against Huddersfield to keep on track for Champions League football next season
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said that he doesn't consider his side favourites in the English Premier League considering their performance in previous three-four years.
Tottenham face already relegated Huddersfield in the Premier League on Saturday without Harry Kane or Dele Ali.
Kane is likely to miss the rest of the season with an ankle injury picked up in their Champions League win over Manchester City, while Dele Ali broke his hand in two places.
"Taking the past, the last few years, I don't think that we are favourites," said Pochettino in a press conference.
He added, "We are below them (Chelsea, Arsenal) but maybe with our belief, our confidence, maybe we are above. We trust in ourselves and are confident we are going to get the top four."
"I think it is going to be tough, it is exciting, amazing for everyone. For us, not so much. But it is going to be fantastic to achieve the top four at the end of the season."

They are currently one point above Arsenal, but one behind Chelsea.
