We Played With Maturity - Tottenham boss, Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has praised his team’s maturity after keeping the title race open with their win over Arsenal.
Dele Alli scored his 17th league goal of the season and Harry Kane netted from the penalty spot three minutes later as Pochettino's team eased to a 2-0 victory. Spurs fell away tamely in the closing weeks of last season's title race, taking just two points from their last four games, but Pochettino thinks that experience has made his team mentally stronger.

He said “It was a fantastic reaction - it's important to keep focused on our game, we can say we're more mature than last season. This team tries to win games and be better than the opponent. Today was another chance to see the team learn and improve. It was a fantastic afternoon - I'm very happy for players and fans in the last derby here at White Hart Lane, It was so emotional. I must say congratulations to the players and fans as this season so far has been fantastic. We tried to pay back all the effort and energy the fans have given us - home and away. We fully deserved the victory. Also, to close the gap on Chelsea was the most important thing.”

The victory also means Spurs are guaranteed to finish above Arsenal in the Premier League for the first time since 1995.
