we made a statement by beating United - Mauricio Pochettino

In a night where all United wanted was a win, Tottenham went to Old Trafford and taught them how the game was played and Pochettino was very pleased.

Manchester United were at the top of their game compered to their last game but their defenders couldn't hold Lucas Moura down. The former PSG man was a big trouble for them all night. Harry Kane got the opener and Moura sealed it with extra two goals.

Pochettino was happy with the result and he believes this is a statement for every other teams in the league.

'I think it's so important because it puts us in a very important position in the table,' he said

'Another negative result today and it's open again, [people would say it's] difficult for Tottenham to win away from home against the top six again.'

'This can appear some big statement to say, 'OK, we are here' to show that we believe in ourselves. Good character. I think in the end only three points but we need to keep calm.'

'In the same way we can be happy because Manchester United is a great team and it's not easy to play and come here. Maybe it's easy to score but after 1-0 you want to play safe and say. 'OK, come on, let's play safe and finish the game 1-0.'

'But I think the character and the personality of the team was to try to find the second and the third. I think that is why we fully deserved  the result and the players all the credits.'

Pochettino also praised the performamce of Lucas Moura who got two goals in the game.

'He is going to receive much praise now. But for me I want to say [well done] to our chief scout Steve Hitchen and all the people that worked with him, because they advised to sign him,' he said

'When the people sometimes criticise because always it is tough now, I think I need to say well done, because today's performance from Lucas Moura, for the people that advised and feel responsible too, they need to be praised too. That is why I want to congratulate them.'

'There are always people who are working behind the scenes and it was a fantastic job because today I think Lucas deserves a lot of credit.'
