Mauricio Pochettino: The timing of the goals was important


Tottenham Hotspur head coach Mauricio Pochettino was visibly delighted after his side's 2-0 away win at Aston Villa.

Spurs needed to bounce back after the mid-week defeat at Borussia Dortmund and they responded with a very convincing win at Villa Park.

The win means they are now just two points below leaders Leicester City who are in action tonight against Newcastle United.

"It was a good victory and three important points after a few games that have not been so good," Pochettino told BBC Sport.

"We created more chances and played well. It is difficult to play against teams playing for survival but we had the right mentality and I am pleased.

"The timing of the goals was important. That was key. But we created a lot in the first half and it was a game we can take a lot of positives from.

"It is important for [Harry] Kane and the team. He is an unbelievable guy who works hard for the team. I am very pleased for him.

"[The title race?] We need to keep the pressure on and win games. You cannot stop the dream of the supporters and they are right to dream. But we need to work hard."
