Pochettino: “We need to be consistent and stay focused.”



Tottenham Hotspur beat Manchester United 2-0 on Wednesday night and Mauricio Pochettino was happy with the “amazing start” to the game at Wembley.

Christian Eriksen scored with just 11 seconds into the match, and Phil Jones doubled the lead in the 28th minute as the United defender turned a Kieran Trippier cross into his own net.

However, following the triumph over Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils, Pochettino told Tottenham's official website: "It was an amazing start and then fantastic how we managed the game.

“The plan is always to try to be aggressive and go for the game from the beginning and show the opponent that we want to win.

“It will be good to show to the younger players in the Academy the belief of Christian to anticipate the action (for the goal). There is a lot to learn from this action.

"It was a fantastic performance. I'm so happy with the players. We played an amazing game and fully deserved that result.


“We were much better than them. We played against a very good team and that is why we are so happy.

“Now we need to keep going, to be consistent and stay focused because we have a lot of important games ahead.”

Eriksen's goal is the third fastest goal (10.5 seconds) scored in the Premier League history behind Ledley King (9.9 seconds v Bradford in 2001) and Alan Shearer (10.4 seconds for Newcastle v City, back in 2003).
