Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino and winger Son Heung-min have been named Barclays manager of the month and player of the month respectively.

Tottenham Hotspur will hope to still have a chance at winning the Premier League title when they host Manchester United at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.

"I'm thankful to my teammates, coaching staff and so many fans", said the South Korea worldwide, who also won September's award and has scored 12 league goals in a fine season.

Son is yet to fully cement a spot in Pochettino's starting XI having started just 20 Premier League games and coming on as a substitute in a further 11.

Mauricio Pochettino's men may not have ended up with the Premier League trophy but the north London club's progress is very much continuing on and off the pitch.

'I think it's not fair to measure with me, as it is to measure with Wenger.

'The way football is, anything can happen anytime so I'm just going to enjoy my time here and who knows what will happen in the future?'

"I want to congratulate all and say thank you to the fans, players, my staff because all together we work so hard to achieve all that we achieve this season", he said.

Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris are players that could fit the bill at any club in the world but Poch remains confident of keeping them. "The facilities on the training ground and the stadium will put the team and the club at the last level". We owe a lot to them for the way they have supported us this season.

"That doesn't mean they are happy it is the end of White Hart Lane, but that they are excited towards the progress. Be sure it will be very very emotional but at the same time it will be very, very exciting to welcome the new stadium".
