Mauricio Pochettino: Manager's side now clear in fourth

Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham were “perfect” in the 3-0 victory over Norwich, but says they can still improve.

A Harry Kane brace and Tom Carroll’s first Premier League goal eased Spurs to all three points, leaving the North Londoners with a two-point buffer in fourth.

And the display clearly impressed manager Pochettino.

“I am very happy. I think we need to feel proud. The performance from the players was perfect, only the first 15 minutes was difficult but we managed the game very well,” he said.

Kane’s double – the first of which was from the penalty spot – to the England striker’s tally for 2015 to 27 goals, breaking Teddy Sheringham’s club record.

“It is difficult to speak more about Harry Kane,” Pochettino told BBC Sport.

“For me, he needs to keep working hard and keep showing his qualities in the games. Dele Alli is another player we are very happy with but it is about the team and they showed confidence in how we played.

Despite the Argentinian’s satisfaction, the former Southampton boss insists his side must strive to keep getting better.

“It is very important that the squad believe and they can improve their performance after every session, it is only time before we can deliver success,” he added.

“It is not about what people say – we are a group but have not set a limit. We want to play the next game and get the three points.”
