New Tottenham record is only the start, vows Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino has told Tottenham supporters the new club record of nine straight Premier League home wins is only the start.

Spurs set the mark by beating Everton 3-2 at White Hart Lane on Sunday, Harry Kane netting twice with Dele Alli also on target.

After finishing third last season, Tottenham sit second with 11 games left to play in 2016-17 and a proud Pochettino feels there is much more to come from his side.

Fantastic achievement

"It is another fantastic achievement for the group," he said to BBC Sport.

"We feel very proud about that. We make history with this group, they are young players and it is only the start of good things that are coming in the future. 

"I am very pleased for the players. This is a fantastic club with our supporters and I am very happy and proud to have broken the record here.

"The atmosphere is great and we can feel that. We are in a very good position here."

Kane showered with praise

Pochettino had further praise for Kane after he moved on to 19 league goals for the season, with the first of his two strikes coming from 30 yards to open the scoring.

"It was a great, great goal," the Spurs boss added to Sky Sports. "To shoot from that position is because you feel that you can score, are confident and have the belief to achieve that target. 

"He showed big quality in that situation. He is one of the best. I repeat that not only if he scores, but even if he does not score. 

"He had a good game, he was fantastic. He deserves all the praise and it is fantastic he is in our side."
