In an interview uploaded to the club’s official website, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino labeled today an ‘amazing effort’ from the Tottenham team after running out comfortable 3-0 winners over Ronald Koeman’s new-look Everton.
Two strikes from Harry Kane and a deserved goal for Christian Eriksen settled the tie, earning Spurs their first victory at Goodison Park since the final day of Pochettino’s debut Tottenham campaign in the 2014-15 season.
Speaking about the impressive triumph in Mersey-side, the Argentine hailed the team’s work-rate and drive in what was quite clearly Tottenham’s deadliest performance of the season so far.
“It was a very solid performance, I’m very pleased,” He told SpursTV. “It was a big effort, an amazing effort from the team.”
“Its three very important points for us at the start of a very busy period. Its true that it is still very early in the season, but it is important to win games, and today to win in that way is so important to build our confidence.”
“There are a lot of things we need to settle in the team. There are a lot of new players and its true that we need to be dynamic and different, but we are so happy in the way we played today.”
“The character and the personality of the way we tried to play was fantastic.”
Davinson Sanchez made his first start for the club today, playing for the full 90 minutes and keeping a clean-sheet.
Commenting on the youngster’s performance, Pochettino was optimistic that increased competition for places can lead to success in future challenges.
“He was really good, a very solid performance.” He added. “I’m pleased for him.”
“Always its difficult, he’s still very young, just 21. The Premier League is always difficult, and today on the pitch he felt very calm and relaxed.”
“It was important for him to feel the Premier League, and today was a great opportunity. We have a squad that I think is important to rotate to compete for the starting eleven.
“We have a lot of games ahead, but I’m sure altogether we can achieve the things we want to achieve.”
