Mauricio Pochettino talks about Tottenham’s title hopes

The Argentine said it was too early to think about the title, but he had enough quality at his disposal.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has stated that it is too early to talk about Spurs potentially winning the Premier League title, but is quoted by Tottenham Journal as saying he has enough quality to do so in the future.

The North London outfit extended their unbeaten domestic run to 12 games with a dominant showing against West Ham on Sunday, with the hosts winning 4-1 against the Hammers at White Hart Lane.

The result leaves Pochettino’s young side in fifth place, two points adrift of the Champions League qualification berths and only four points off top spot.

The ultimate goal for Spurs this season will be to finish in the top four, but with a lot of the top sides slipping up the North London outfit are arguably the form team in the division.

Despite his side being on a progressive run, Pochettino has stated that talk of winning the title is premature.

“It is early to talk about winning the title. We have a very young squad, we need to develop,” the Tottenham Journal quote the Argentine as saying.

“For us to try to win the title maybe we need more. We have been consistency but it is hard to judge five months away.

“In football you can never stop, we are happy but we can improve.

“We can play even better in our next game, it is never easy to improve, but our mentality is we can improve step by step and keep working hard.

“We have enough quality, but it is not all about that, it is about mental state and lots of other things.”

Spurs are on the road in the Europa League this week as they take on Qarabag, with a mouth-watering clash against Chelsea on the horizon next Sunday.
