Pochettino focused on next Tottenham game - not Arsenal jinx

Pochettino focused on next Tottenham game - not Arsenal jinx

Tottenham's 59 points is their best performance after 28 games of a top-flight season since they won the league and FA Cup double in 1960-61.

Southampton are the last team to win at White Hart Lane (May 2016) and Pochettino is adamant his players deserve praise after surviving a second-half fightback to tighten their grip on second place.

James Ward-Prowse pulled one back shortly after the restart and despite both sides creating several chances, the hosts managed to hold onto victory which takes them 10 points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea in second place.

"It's fantastic for them and for the club", he said.

Janssen won Spurs two free-kicks deep into stoppage time as the seconds ticked away and there was a universal sigh of relief when the final whistle was blown.

Mauricio Pochettino believes Dele Alli could be a complete player after he stepped up to fill the void left by Harry Kane for Spurs against Southampton. The attacking midfielder did not care.

In fact, Spurs have not lost when Alli has scored this season in all competitions.

It is the time of the season when it feels commonplace to hear complaints about fixture congestion.

"They were superior then and now it's interesting to see our progress".

The Dane collected a pass from the excellent Mousa Dembele, turned onto his left foot, and placed his finish beyond Forster and inside the keeper's right hand post. In Kane's absence, Alli picked himself up to drill home low from the spot.

Southampton: Forster, Cedric, Yoshida, Stephens, Bertrand, Davis, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Tadic, Gabbiadini, Redmond. It was a frightful miss.

Southampton striker Manolo Gabbiadini was inches away from an equaliser with a shot that shook the side-netting but the Italian limped off shortly afterwards with a groin injury.

And stats show that no other young player in Europe has been delivering quite like Alli this season.

Southampton unsuccessfully claimed a penalty of its own on the stroke of halftime. Before the impact, though, Davies looked to have got a piece of the ball.

"He is very positive, joking about (coming back) after the global break, three to four weeks", Pochettino said.
