“He is an important player. We have a lot of very good players. It is true the performance like in the last game and today, he maybe deserves to play in the Premier League more.

“It was a great goal, and a happy goal for him and the team.”

“You always need all the players. When you play a game you analyse the possibility of putting players on the pitch to make an impact.

“Today Andros (Townsend), Erik (Lamela) and Harry (Kane) made a big impact.”

Although playing against 10-men after Christian Benteke got sent off when Villa was 1-0 up, Pochettino claims Spurs deserved the victory coming from a goal down.

“We deserved the victory. The team worked hard and showed their character. In the end, the points are the most important thing.

“No [it is not a relief]. If you have a good result, you are a great manager if you lose you are a bad manager.

“We have our idea, our philosophy and we need time but it was important to get this result today.”
