The Champions League target is regularly being bandied about.
Pochettino responded: "Why not?
"Obviously we have to wait a few more months to know the result of that but I always say the grades should be put at the end of the season, not now.
"We're a team who don't set any limits to ourselves of what we can do and we want to keep on winning every single game that we play."
He added: "So far we are really happy with the season we're having and it's fully down to the players and they deserve all the plaudits and all the credit.
"They fully accept everything we make them do and we are really happy about that.
"They put in 100 per cent effort in every training session so for us as a technical staff and a manager it's a luxury to have these players."
