Dele Alli pledges renewed focus from Tottenham in the Premier League

Tottenham will struggle to stop Christian Eriksen from joining Barcelona says Ian McGarry

But after, if we want to win titles, we need to operate in a different way.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino believes he would be sacked if he only won domestic cups rather than putting the Spurs squad as the Premier League or the European title contender.

Spurs moved back into second place and, to within six points of Premier League leaders Liverpool, as first-half goals from Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min rewarded their superiority over Neil Warnock's Bluebirds.

"We are in an fantastic position, the club is finishing one of the best stadiums in the world, the team is so competitive".

The Spurs chief did not make any major signings in the summer and says the prospect of doing so in the January transfer window "is worse".

Tottenham are now six points adrift of Premier League leaders Liverpool but due to their absentees, one would favour the title race to be a two-way battle between Manchester City and the Reds, leaving Pochettino's charges to challenge for a top four place.

"After almost five years the club is at a different level, but how we operate in five years didn't change", Pochettino added on Monday. "If something arrives, we are going to listen and then it's what we want to do or the player wants to do - it's about negotiating, like always in that business", he said.

Which of these players do you think United can let go?

"You never like to lose games but I don't think you look at it as revenge", Solskjaer said.

'I was very pleased with the performance and we were so clinical from the beginning. Hopefully the momentum can carry us on to win that match. "We're a team everyone likes to watch over the last three or four years but we need to be a little bit naughty, smart in how we compete, and we still miss that".

"I think he's very good at that and as players we want to play every game anyway, we want to be in every competition so all we can do is make sure we recover properly after games, mentally and physically, make sure you prepare for every game and be ready to play. But we have the opportunity in the next few months to show we are capable to be more competitive".

Asked about potentially signing players in this month's transfer window, Pochettino said: "We know summer is hard, but winter is worse and it is going to be hard".

"But we are so ambitious and we have the ambition to win".

Pochettino said Tottenham's ability to consistently challenge the Premier League's elite teams with a lesser budget has made them "a target" and "the team to beat".
