Mauricio Pochettino: Fast start was key to victory at West Brom on Saturday.


Tottenham manager pleased with his side's display.

Mauricio Pochettino's team were two goals up within 15 minutes at The Hawthorns when in-form duo, Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane found the back of the net.

Spur's goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was vital in the match as he made a couple of saves to keep the Lilywhites from conceding, Kane made it 3-0 from the penalty spot after former Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott handled Kyle Walker's cross in the box.

All in all, the Tottenham boss Pochettino was delighted his team continued their fine form as they secured three points at West Bromwich.

“I’m very pleased and very proud of our players,” said Mauricio, as the club’s official website reported. “We showed character and strong mentality and this is the way we want to play.

“I’m also proud of our supporters, they were great again, amazing in their support and we thank them for that. I think the 3-0 scoreline showed that we are in a very good way.

“From the beginning we played at a high tempo and that was the key, to start the game quickly.

“That was the mentality because it’s always difficult after reaching a cup final to play away against a tough team like West Brom.

“We showed character, that’s important and we need to keep this feeling for the next few weeks.”
