Cape Town - Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino said his side were in a good position to claim a Europa League spot after easily beating Hull City on Saturday.

This victory kept Tottenham a point ahead of Southampton, who thrashed Aston Villa 6-1 on Saturday, and a win at Everton on the final day of the season will guarantee European football at White Hart Lane next term.

"It's very important for us to keep in the same position in the table, we have tried to finish fifth or sixth," said Pochettino, who accepted results had been mixed since he joined Tottenham from Southampton in pre-season.

"Overall, we have had some good and bad games. Some were unbelievable like Chelsea at home, and Arsenal and others are better to forget.

"I think that when you start at a new club and you settle in and you put your ideas in a new group in the first season it is not easy.

"We need to be more consistent next season, and be more strong, and to work very hard during the summer to create a really strong group," the Argentinian added.
