“It wasn’t an easy game because Everton are fighting.They have a really good squad with good players. Tonight we played a really good game. We moved the ball very well. We attacked the space at the right time.
“I’m pleased for my players. The hard work we are doing is starting to pay. This team is improving a lot. We have a lot of space to continue to improve.
“It’s not enough. The players and I want to try to be competitive and to fight for position at the top of the table. We have to take this responsibility, the players and I, in the last 12 games to give everything. We’ll see what our position will be.
“Harry Kane is in a good moment of form. He’s an important player for us. Today it’s good to celebrate because we won 5-0 but I want an answer from my players in the game against United on Saturday. I want to see if we’re getting better and better in a tough game against an important team fighting with us for the top four.
“It was a good night for everyone. On Saturday it will be a really tough game and we have to show we’re becoming stronger.
“Since my arrival in Tottenham I didn’t know if it could be realistic but now after our months of hard work I think the two players complete our squad. Now my expectations have become higher.
“It’s difficult to beat us when we have more days to prepare. The big problem is when we have games in a short period. When you don’t have more time to prepare the game… Now we have only one target, to finish in the best possible way. We have more time to prepare and we have to try to do our best and we’ll see at the end of the season.”
