Sitting third on the Premier League table with 51 points from 23 league matches, the Lilywhites trail second placed Man City with five points while nine points separates them from Liverpool.

"Again we're going to have the debate whether a trophy will take the club to the next level. I don't agree with it. It only builds your ego," Pochettino said.

One said: "The absolute state of this Argentine David Moyes. Do we really want a manager with this mentality at United?

"Personally, I don't want him anywhere near Manchester United next season. Just give the job permanently to Ole."

Moyes was sacked after just one season in charge of the club and was renowned for his lack of confidence in the club.

He said: "I think we've played a very good side [City] and it's the sort of standard and level we need to try and aspire to get ourselves to at this moment in time."

Ahead of the Liverpool game in 2014, he claimed: "Their league position suggests they're ahead of us. They possibly do come here favourites."

"This causes me more certainty I don't want him managing my team United. It also shows why Spurs are always going to be second best if they are never even looking to win anything."

His recent victory was his side 3-1 win over Arsenal in the FA Cup fourth round stage at the Emirates Stadium on Friday.
