Tottenham: Pochettino aiming for improvementTottenham: Pochettino aiming for improvement

Tottenham produced a stunning display against Manchester City on Sunday in-front of their home fans, recording a convincing 2-0 victory to extend their unbeaten run to seven Premier League games.

An own-goal from Aleksandar Kolarov and a composed finish from Dele Alli was enough to clinch all three points for Spurs, who have now climbed to second in the table and are just a point behind the Citizens.

Confidence levels are high as the season takes a break for international matches and there is once again huge optimism the club can mount another serious title challenge.

Pochettino’s men are enjoying their best start to a top-flight campaign for over two decades and many are tipping the team to improve on their third-placed finish from last term.

However, the Argentine tactician has warned his players not to get complacent and insists the focus must always be on improving with every match in order to achieve their goals.

“It’s only the beginning of the season. It was a good game but we need to use it to try to improve every day and every game,” he said. “Tottenham is a big club and we need to be ambitious. We need to fight for titles at the end, that is our aim.”

Spurs return to league action on October 15 when they travel to West Bromwich Albion, who are on a three-game unbeaten run following victory over West Ham and draws with Stoke City and Sunderland.

Tottenham have not lost to the Baggies in the previous three meetings, drawing two and winning once, and punters may decide to use their free bet on the visitors extending this record further.

Pochettino’s men are looking to record their fifth straight Premier League victory and they could find themselves top of the table depending on how City do at home to Everton that same day.
