Dele Alli says Mauricio Pochettino played a key role in him signing a contract extension with Tottenham.

"He's a massive part of wanting to be at this club", Alli said. Harry Kane, Érik Lamela, Son Heung-min and Davinson Sánchez have all signed new deals in recent months.

The 26-year-old has now scored four goals and been credited with an assist in three EPL games against the London club.

"I can't think of a better place for a player of my age and where I am in my career, to have such fantastic support and coaching staff to help me to keep improving".

"We all want to achieve something great". As young players as well, we want to keep improving and this is a great place to do that.

"I try and be balanced, and last season, even when we were flying, I said the margins are really tight, W he said".

The Spaniard played the ball back in and Ogbonna allowed Alli to flick it through to Son, who lashed his shot high into the net from 10 yards out.

"It will be that bit more special winning it here together, with the amount of work we've done".

The visitors had, of course, been in action just 48 hours earlier against Manchester City on a awful Wembley pitch, so manager Mauricio Pochettino made 10 changes to his line-up.

"And when the player gets the reward you feel so happy- that's why when he came to me we hug because I share the happiness". "That's what I want to do, to keep improving as a player and as a person".

One of West Ham's biggest problems so far this season has been a lack of cohesion between their undoubtedly talented attackers, but there were no such issues on Saturday, as they created lots of chance and looked very lively.

Pochettino has been linked with a move to Real Madrid as a replacement for Julen Lopetegui, the former Spain coach having been sacked after a disastrous 14-match reign culminating in a 5-1 Clasico thrashing at the hands of Barcelona.

"We have a lot of work to do, without a shadow of a doubt, but I couldn't be more proud of what the players have all done to get to where we are".
