Mauricio Pochettino happy with win, already shifts focus to Sheffield game


Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino was delighted after a late Christian Eriksen goal gave his side all three points against Sunderland.

Spurs climbed to fifth place in the table after a hard-fought win over Gus Poyet's side but the Argentine insists that it's too early to focus on a top-four finish.

"I am happy for the players and for our supporters," Pochettino said.

"We played much better than Sunderland, and in the second half, I thought we were better.

"Christian Eriksen is a very good player, and this is a very good victory. Hugo Lloris is one of the best keepers in the world, and he showed that late on.

"I thought the officials got confused about the late disallowed goal for Jan Vertonghen, because it was a goal.

"I don't want to speak about finishing in the top four. I want to speak about the next game. We need to keep going."

Spurs will be back in action on Wednesday when they host Sheffield United in the League Cup.
