    MAURICIO Pochettino says he doesn’t want to over-hype his young Spurs side, even though they remain unbeaten in the Premier League.

    But the Argentine has admitted that he thinks they should be challenging for titles. 

    Speaking after Sunday’s 2-0 destruction of Manchester City at White Hart Lane, the Tottenham boss noted his charges are now being talked about as genuine title contenders. 

    He said: “It’s only the beginning of the season. It was a good game but we need to try to improve in every game. Tottenham is a big club and we need to be ambitious. 

    “We need to be fighting for titles at the end of the season.” 

    Meanwhile, summer signing Vincent Janssen has revealed in an interview with Dutch newspapers that he believes he has already improved his game.

    “I feel I am a better footballer,” the forward revealed. 

    “We train harder, I stand in front of very good defenders, and I play great matches. In London, I’ve became accustomed to a higher level of training, which is comparable to the training of the Dutch national side.” 

    Elsewhere, Spurs announced this week that they have sold out their remaining Champions League matches at Wembley. 

    They have sold all of the 85,000 allocated tickets that were available for the games against Bayer Leverkusen and CSKA Moscow, which take place in November and December respectively.
