Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is refusing to get carried away after watching his side jump to second in the Premier League.
Spurs continued their brilliant festive period with a 5-0 romp over Bournemouth on Boxing Day, which made it 11 goals in two games and took them above Manchester City and into the top two, six points off Liverpool.
Tottenham’s ascent up to second has coincided with City losing three out of four games and completes a seven-point swing over Pep Guardiola’s men, who were five points clear of Spurs after beating them 1-0 at the end of October.

Pochettino said: “I wasn’t negative in that moment (when we were fifth) eight weeks ago and now I am trying to keep the balance with my emotion.
“We are happy because we are in a good position, but to be honest it doesn’t mean too much to us to be second or third, or first, I think the most important thing is where you finish in May.
“When you are there you start to show your face, everyone wants to kill you and of course it is tougher when you are higher.
But of course, we need to keep in the same way; humble, working hard and knowing that each game is going to be tougher than the one before.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
