Mauricio Pochettino: Tottenham Hotpur Has Learnt Lessons Of Last Season

Mauricio Pochettino hailed it as a "great team performance" as he reflected with satisfaction on how Spurs have won their last seven matches with a total of 21 goals, while conceding only three.

Mauricio Pochettino's side have accumulated five consecutive Premier League wins and have been victorious in 5 of their last 7 overall.

"After Chelsea was a big challenge for us to keep momentum, to show we learn and show we are mature enough to fight", he said.

"We need to wait until Sunday, Monday to assess better". He said that Spurs were playing much better than they were at this stage previous year, with nine more points and nine more goals than they had after 21 Premier League games.

"I was very pleased after Chelsea because it wasn't our best game but we competed and maybe we missed that a little bit last season - to compete better in some games", he said. "Now we are looking at Manchester City and that is the most important game".

West Brom defence struggled to curtail the rampaging attack of Spurs and nearly conceded a second goal when Danny Rose fired a 25 yards out which went off target.




"The first 45 minutes was fantastic, it was wonderful football", Pochettino said. Schooled at Ajax, a club that places particular emphasis upon technical skills but also preaches the importance of pressing, the Dane was always noticeable for his attempts to control the tempo of the game.

Kane took his tally for the league season to 13 in 16 matches - he has two more in the Champions League - to round off a momentous week.

Foster's excellence, particularly at Kane's expense, was responsible for preventing considerably heavier damage before Spurs' top scorer struck twice in quick succession to claim the matchball after becoming a father for the first time last weekend.

"It is true that he has not yet realised that his life has completely changed, it is a different life".

The only low point for Spurs was an ankle injury that forced centre-back Jan Vertonghen off midway through the second half.

'They look very unsafe every time they play in that system, the difference is that they play in control of the game every single time, it doesn't matter who they play against. "His ankle is badly [swollen]".
