Pochettino points to Chelsea spending as key to title win

Chelsea news: Mauricio Pochettino claims Antonio Conte bought the title

Mauricio Pochettino has been named Premier League Manager of the Month for April after guiding Tottenham to a 100 percent record in their six matches.

The news will come as little consolation for the Argentine, however, as May began with a damaging 1-0 defeat at West Ham that effectively ended Spurs' title challenge with Chelsea able to clinch the crown with victory at West Brom on Friday.

But Pochettino has rejected the notion, suggesting that Chelsea's significant spending in the transfer market has been critical to their success. I totally understand but I don't know if I agree with him that it's an advantage. You could say Arsene Wenger has that advantage and should be winning the league every season.

'It's hard when you sign for a club like Chelsea and you have the pressure to win and you spend the money that they spent on David Luiz, Marcos Alonso, [Michy] Batshuayi and [N'Golo] Kante.

"I think it was a struggle for him at the beginning but now he's happy because they have been successful". Why not win every season? It was not the best comment from him [Conte]'.

WATCH: Costa & Luiz kidnap Conte!

Spurs will swap their White Hart Lane home for a new 61,000-capacity ground from the 2018-2019 campaign - but it could have repercussions in their attempt to keep pace at the top of the Premier League.

Pochettino said: "It means a lot for everyone here because for me it's an award, a trophy that deserves to be shared with everyone at the club".

Spurs will play an emotional last ever game at White Hart Lane when Manchester United visit this Sunday. They are excited to the future of the club.
