Po­chet­tino de­mands more

The Herald (Zimbabwe) - - Sport -

LONDON. - Mauri­cio Po­chet­tino has chal­lenged his Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur play­ers to demon­strate their grow­ing ma­tu­rity when they face West Brom to­day in the wake of their im­pres­sive vic­tory over English Premier League soc­cer lead­ers Chelsea.

Po­chet­tino's side ended Chelsea's run of 13 suc­ces­sive league vic­to­ries by ex­tend­ing their own win­ning run to six games and mov­ing up to third place, seven points adrift of the lead­ers.

Last week­end's FA Cup vic­tory over As­ton Villa en­sured they main­tained the cur­rent mo­men­tum, but Po­chet­tino knows the true test of his side's cre­den­tials as ti­tle chal­lengers will be to build on the Chelsea win.

Ear­lier this sea­son, Spurs fol­lowed the im­pres­sive 2-0 de­feat of Manch­ester City with a run of four league games with­out a win and Po­chet­tino warned there can be no re­peat.

“The Chelsea win was im­por­tant, but re­mem­ber a few months ago af­ter City?” said the Spurs man­ager.

“I think now is a mo­ment to show that we've learned. We have in front of us a very tough game and we need to show that we learned about a few months ago. -
