Mauricio Pochettino has stated Tottenham need to be more “consistent” in the future after their 2-0 victory over Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.

Spurs inflicted the first defeat on Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City at White Hart Lane to go within a point of the Premier League leaders.

Aleksandar Kolarov converted into his own net after nine minutes, with Dele Alli doubling his sides lead, just before the break, as the north London club moved to 17 points from their opening seven games.

Manager Pochettino who masterminded the victory hailed the “fantastic” performance from his side, but insisted that it is too early in the season.

“It was a fantastic victory,” Pochettino told the club’s official Twitter account. “But, it’s only early in the season. We need to be consistent in the future.”

Spurs have now picked up five wins on the trot in all competitions heading into the international break.

The north London club have registered four consecutive league victories, including five wins overall, as they are now the only unbeaten side in the league.

Pochettino’s side travel to the Hawthorns after the international break, as Spurs take on Tony Pulis’ West Brom on October 15.
