Dele Alli, Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen's goals in the 88th, 91st and 94th minutes came after Wayne Routledge's first-half opener and Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino said: 'It happened because we believed, and never gave up'.
Tottenham have not won the league since 1961.
Spurs remain seven points behind leaders Chelsea after completing a remarkable 3-1 comeback win at Swansea on Wednesday.
"I believe that we can win every game if we play like we did against Swansea - and then we'll see", said Pochettino, whose side host Bournemouth on April 15. Spurs continue to keep it interesting at the top of the table and a late flurry of activity from them at Swansea secured what seemed an unlikely three points with 88 minutes on the clock.
"Chelsea is looking very strong but we can't stop pushing and dreaming of the league", the Belgium worldwide said, as quoted by Sky Sports.
Spurs were champions Leicester's closest challengers last term before fading in the final weeks of the campaign.
Son is now on a two-match scoring streak as he also found the net against Burnley last week.
"Tottenham were always capable of beating the smaller teams but not the big ones".
"There is a good group of players here and a couple of years left in many of us".
With their top players all in form, the team playing as a unit and manager Mauricio Pochettino settled and happy, Murphy is excited for the young team's future but admits they are still in need of back-up to frontman Kane, who is now out with an ankle problem.
Tottenham are just 30/100 with Sky Bet to maintain the pressure on Chelsea by recording a sixth successive win, with Watford up against odds of 9/1 to cause an upset and 17/4 just to secure a point.
Spurs have a five-point lead over third-placed Liverpool, who have played a game more.
Tottenham have four home games remaining in the Premier League this season (including this game).
"It is insane how the goals came in the last few minutes but we pushed and we created chances to win", he said.
