Pochettino cools title talk

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says it's "too early" to suggest his side can be in the mix for the title again this season.

Pochettino's men were surprise contenders for the Premier League crown last term before they finished the campaign poorly and ended up in third place.

They have begun this season well and already fans and pundits are claiming this could be Spurs' season - especially after the impressive 2-0 win over early pacesetters Manchester City before the international break.

Pochettino's side are unbeaten so far and sit second in the table, but the Argentinian coach says everyone must keep their feet on the ground.

"It's difficult for me. It's too early. We are building a very nice project and a very nice team," he told BBC Sport. "We are in a moment that we need to believe and show that we are able to manage big things and big games.

"It's a great opportunity to show that we are in the right way. I think only we need time - we have a young squad - but if play with the passion that we showed against Manchester City all is possible.

"But it's too early [for title talk]. But I understand that our fans feel proud and start to think that maybe it's possible to achieve big things this season."
