Spurs look to push on

Mauricio Pochettino believes Tottenham have shaken off the hangover of last season's meltdown in the Premier League title race as they prepare to challenge on multiple fronts.

Pochettino's side host Monaco in their opening Champions League fixture on Wednesday in the second of seven games in 22 days.

Stoke rout brings new hope

And after a low-key start to their title challenge, Pochettino says Saturday's 4-0 win at Stoke proves his players have moved on from last term, when they fell away to finish third after heading into the final weeks as title contenders.

'We have a very hard season with the Champions League and everything and it's important we have everyone competing,' he said.

New season, new challenges

'After four games unbeaten you can see the players are thinking about the new season and the new challenge.

'We have forgotten the past. It was tough for us, but we have worked hard to forget last season and refocus.

'We are up for the challenge, we are always optimistic and believe in our players, so why not go better than last season?'
