Pochettino: Tottenham not getting carried away

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has insisted that he and his team are not getting carried away despite continuing their good form with a 3-0 victory at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, reports Goal.com.

The North London side were two goals ahead with a quarter of an hour thanks to in-form duo Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane. First, Eriksen curled in a trademark free-kick that goalkeeper Ben Foster could not quite keep out, and then Kane scored his 19th goal of the season with an emphatic finish after cutting inside Andre Wisdom.

Hugo Lloris had to make three terrific saves as West Brom rallied, but a clinical Spurs wrapped the game up in the second half; Kane scoring from the penalty spot after Joleon Lescott’s handball.

The win lifted Tottenham back up to fifth place in what is starting to become an enthralling race to finish in the final two Champions League qualification places, but Pochettino is ensuring his team remain grounded. He said: “We don’t speak about that (the top four), I think that we need to focus on the next game.

“Step by step, I think this is our objective – no objective or challenge on the long term. We need to play every game like we played today. If we show the performance like today, maybe we have the possibility to arrive [in the top four] but we need to be consistent from here to the end of the season. I am very proud of my players, I congratulate them because it was a great performance – like a team.”
