​Pochettino pleased with 'professional' Tottenham win over Newport

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is delighted with his side's professional display in the FA Cup against Newport County.

While Spurs were not at their expansive best, they did manage two goals and a clean sheet in the game at Wembley.

Tottenham were having to play the game because they could only get a draw in the game at Newport. But now they are through to the fifth round of the cup, and the manager is pleased.

"It was a professional performance, the job is done and we're happy to be in the next round," he said.

"That was our objective. That was what we needed to do. Now we're thinking about the next game and that's the derby on Saturday."
