Dele Alli signed a new long-term deal on Tuesday and Spurs are confident their Danish playmaker will follow suit.
Son Heung-min marked his 150th appearance for Spurs with his first two goals of the season to set up a 3-1 victory.
"We all love the way we work, the style of play".
"That's what I want to do, to keep improving as a player and as a person".
"For me I feel proud the players care about you, but I repeat the responsibility is wanting to play for the glory of the club". I'll keep working hard every day and keep listening to the manager.
"I'm delighted. It's a great gesture from the club, with a few years still left on my contract, to renew it".
He says he owes a lot to manager Pochettino, as well as the rest of the Tottenham coaching staff, having gone on to represent England 31 times and pick up back-to-back PFA Young Player of the Year awards in 2016 and 2017.
"We could have got everything - we could have got what we got, we could have drawn, we could have won", said Nuno.
Pochettino said: "When we arrive in that situation we need to learn about how to play seriously, not make mistakes and not give opponents such poor actions that they can stay in the game. We have to grow and get better". "I don't believe too many players will be ready and fresh to play". We were able to have a go and change and we knew one goal could change the dynamic and that is the heart of the team.
"I love being here, I love being a part of what this club is doing and where we're heading", Alli added.
The 25-year-old, who moved to Spurs from MK Dons in 2015, admitted the White Hart Lane boss played a big part in his decision.
"I can't think of a better place for a player of my age and where I am in my career, to have such incredible support and coaching staff to help me to keep improving. I think I'm at a great place to do that".
