Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino was pleased with his side’s reaction in bouncing back from defeat with a 4-1 victory over Sunderland.
Spurs got back to winning ways having lost at home to fellow top-four hopefuls Leicester in midweek.
Pochettino also praised his team for recovering so swiftly from Patrick van Aanholt’s opener for Sunderland – but is refusing to talk of winning the title.
“It was a very important victory, a good reaction,” he said.
“It was a good performance. I’m very pleased, another great effort from the team and the squad and I’m very happy.
“I think it is early to start to speak about the title, we need to improve a lot and learn a lot, we are a young squad. It is important to keep working hard because in football the situation can turn quickly.
“It is true we are in a good position, we are fourth in the table but we need to keep working hard and to win the next game.
“Always for me, the end starts when you have 10, 9, 8 games left. That is the realistic time (to talk about winning trophies).”
