Pochettino last won the Premier League Manager of the Month award in February 2016.

"When I signed here I understood the Tottenham project and Daniel Levy".

Pochettino arrived in the Premier League in January 2013 when he replaced Nigel Atkins at Southampton and he led the Saints to eighth in his first and only full season in charge.

"He's a very passionate guy, an unbelievable manager", he said. His door is always open, not just for football either. If you take your foot off the gas or have a bad attitude, he will let you know straight away.

Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United have all suffered from inconsistency this season, with Tottenham sitting second and seven points clear of the chasing pack. I want to keep working hard and win it a third time.

It is also the last match to be played at White Hart Lane before the stadium is demolished to make way for the club's new 61,000-seater venue, which is due to be ready for the 2018-19 season.

"My personal one is the Chelsea game - the two headers", he said.

"We love to help the club try to reach the next level, to develop young players and to build something special that does not exist in another club in the world". Tottenham's next match is against Manchester United on Sunday at home.

But the 1-0 setback at the London Stadium means they will likely have to settle for second place and automatic qualification to the Champions League next season.

"It's important we don't forget about what happened and how far we've come".

Throughout EPL history, only 42 players have won Player of the Month twice in a single season and 18 players have won it three times in a single season.

The Spurs boss provided the latest on the fitness of Danny Rose and confirmed that the England global is still not considered available for selection just yet.
