And Tottenham boss Pochettino admitted in his Friday press conference that it could prove tough to move into the new stadium before season's end.
Asked if he still expected to relocate before the end of the season, he replied: "My gut feeling (is that) it will be tough but I hope and I wish to be in the new stadium".
He said about the title race in his press conference: "I think the competition is so tough, the Premier League is so hard and still they are at the top of the table and are clear favourites to win the Premier League".
Spurs have endured mixed results during his time out of the side, winning all three of their Premier League matches without him but also crashing out of both domestic cup competitions against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup and Crystal Palace in the FA Cup.
"He's very optimistic and determined to play as soon as possible - it's unbelievable but he's doing well, if you see him he's almost ready to play but we need to be realistic too and of course in between all the areas to take the best decision".
The club confirmed this week that next month's north London derby with Arsenal will be staged at Wembley while Tottenham wait on a security certificate for the 62,000-seater ground. "I hope that happens and you know very well always I believe that it can be positive to move to the new stadium".
"I think it's not fair when you compete like this, but we will try to win and perform in the best way".
" We'll see what happens".
Pochettino also took the time to address speculation after he was pictured leaving a West End restaurant which Zinedine Zidane and David Beckham had also been eating in. Yes, but it was Jesus who told me look in the corner and I turned and it was these two people.
