Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino insists his side will learn from the mistakes they made during the final weeks of last season.

Spurs mounted a serious challenge for Premier League glory during the 2015-16 campaign but a 2-2 away draw with Chelsea in early May put paid to their chances of claiming a first top-flight crown since 1961.

The north London club followed up the draw at Stamford Bridge with back-to-back league defeats to Southampton and Newcastle, a run of form that ultimately saw the team slip to third in the final standings behind arch-rivals Arsenal and champions Leicester.

Pochettino admits that his young side lacked the experience to maintain a title challenge during the campaign although he is convinced they will mount a stronger title charge next season.

He said: “This experience will serve us well.

“Leicester competed better. With a philosophy contrary to ours but equally valid. I congratulate them. After 38 games the best always wins. This season is proof that in England, the Premier League, anything can happen. Is the most competitive league.”
