Mauricio Pochettino on Crystal Palace, momentum and transfers


Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino says the objective for the second part of the season is to show the same level of intensity showed in the 5-3 win over Chelsea.

Spurs leapfrogged Arsenal and moved into fifth place in the Premier League after the win against the Blues and the 42-year-old wants more of the same from his players.

"We have momentum but we need to keep that and increase our performances, and improve every day," Pochettino said.

"The victory over Chelsea was good for all and gives more belief in our way. Why not keep that level in all games? We are capable of it, but we know it won't be easy.

"It was more than just one victory. It was important to stop this idea that we cannot beat top sides. The players now feel it is possible and have greater belief in our skill and in our mentality.

"We expect a difficult game against Crystal Palace. We analysed them a few weeks ago but now they have a new manager and new way of playing."

Meanwhile, Pochettino insists there will be little or no changes at all in the squad during the January transfer window.

"We are happy with the squad. I do not think there will be many changes by the end of the window," the Argentine revealed.

"There is a lot of rumour in this period but I do not make any comment about rumours."
