(SOUNDBITE) (English) TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR COACH MAURICIO POCHETTINO, SAYING: "Yeah I think we are very happy with our performance and the result. It was great the reaction after the first half because we didn't deserve to lose the game because it wasn't an even game maybe a little bit more for us some chances, but I think the reactions and the help with the Harry Kane goal early in the second half. I think the team started to be very comfortable on the pitch. I think it's fantastic for us, a fantastic achievement to be first and top of the table and qualify for the next stage of the Champions League, I think it's a great renew for us." 2.
