Mauricio Pochettino wants to “build something special” at Tottenham following their 3-0 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford on Monday night.

Harry Kane nudged Spurs into the lead only five minutes after the interval before Lucas Moura produced two great finishes to wrap up the match for Pochettino’s side.

“It is a massive victory for us and I am very proud of the performance,” Pochettino told BBC Radio 5live. “It is difficult to beat Manchester United at Old Trafford. They were better in the first half but we dominated from then on, and the clean sheet was a bonus.

“It is only the start of the season and we need to be consistent. We need to be realistic but want to keep pushing and building our fitness. A lot of our players have only had three weeks training but we want to build something special.

“This is my fifth year and I have good relationship with my players. We have shared a lot of things over that time and the appreciation is normal. We are in a very important period for our club with the new stadium and everyone is showing a big commitment.”
