Mauricio Pochettino has played down talk of Tottenham winning the title
Mauricio Pochettino has disregarded claims his Tottenham side are ready to end the clubs wait for a Premier League title.
Tottenham are unbeaten in the league this season and sit second in the table, but Pochettino has played down talks of the title coming to White Hart Lane.
Speaking to former Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas for the BBC he said, "Well it’s difficult for me, I think it’s too early [to talk about winning the title]."
"I think that we are building a very nice project and very nice team. But I think we need time, we have a young squad."

Spurs have become strong contenders for the title after beating League favourites Manchester City 2-0 in their last match, but the Spurs boss was quick to play down any talk of the title coming back to White Hart Lane.
"If we play with the passion that we play and we show the quality that we showed against Manchester City then all is possible, but I think it’s too early."
"We are in a moment where we need to believe and show that we are capable to manage big things – big games."
"But I can understand our fans feel proud and they start to see that maybe it’s possible this season to achieve big things."

Pochettino is into his third season as Spurs boss, and Sky pundit and Premier League winner Gary Neville was full of praise for the Argentine on his podcast,
"The job that he has done. When you remember the mob that he picked up when he got here – the likes of Adebayor, Kaboul and Paulinho,”
“There is no way they could play at the level that Mauricio Pochettino wants. The speed and the energy."
“Now, inside two years, the transformation [at Tottenham] – even last season. It is a brilliant coaching and recruitment job. We’re hearing less about Daniel Levy and more about the coach.”
Spurs will be looking to build on their victory over Manchester City when they return to Premier League action on Saturday with a trip to West Brom .
