Wanyama not getting carried away.

Tottenham midfield marshal Victor Wanyama is not getting carried away by his side's current form and isn't thinking about the Premier League title just yet.

Tottenham, who have had a fine start to the 2016/17 season, are currently second in the Premier League table after beating table toppers Manchester City before the international break.

However, Wanyama says the north London side are taking it one step at a time.

"It is still early in the season," the former Southampton midfielder told Sky Sports. "It was a big game, but it does not make us contenders because we won. It was a tough game, they are a hard team to beat.

"Our aim was to press high and try to win the ball as high as we could. Everyone was ready for the challenge and we stepped up as a team and showed what we can do.

"We just want to go to every game, get positive results and see from there."

Wanyama also heaped praise on Mauricio Pochettino's impact on the Lilywhites.

"He always wants to improve, he does not want to stand still," he added.

"They did very well last season but we need to improve. They set the bar very high and the challenge is to improve.

"The manager knows me very well and what I can do, that is why he brought me here."
