Speaking after the win, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino said: “I am very pleased but very cold! We were very solid, they worked very hard in the first half and of course, we were a little bit lucky to open the scoring.

“In the second half we found space and were very clincial in front of goal. It was 7-0 but it was very tough to open the scoring.”

When asked if he will improve his squad this January with new players, the Argentine said it would be difficult.

“It is difficult to sign anyone this month. If we can find someone to improve us then we are open but it is so difficult,” he said.
