LONDON (Reuters) - Mauricio Pochettino praised his Tottenham Hotspur side’s “best 45 minutes” in his four-and-a-half years at the club despite a costly 1-0 defeat in the Premier League by Manchester United at Wembley on Sunday.

“For me it was one of the best performances that I saw since I’ve been here and the best 45 minutes.

Not thinking about (the full-time job) whatsoever.”

“I think David de Gea made 11 saves, which is unbelievable.

Third-placed Tottenham’s second successive home defeat left them nine points behind league leaders Liverpool and should Manchester City beat Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday to go five clear, it will surely be a two-horse race for the title.

“I am so pleased and I’m proud,” Pochettino, who is being strongly linked to the Manchester United manager’s job, told reporters.

Tottenham were chasing a first league double over United since the 1989-90 season after a 3-0 away victory in August but despite his obvious disappointment Pochettino said Sunday’s performance was much better than the one at Old Trafford.
