Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has had a hard few weeks on and off the pitch but his knack of scoring goals never lets him down as shown by his second-half strike in a 2-0 Premier League win against Watford on Monday.
Speaking after the game, Pochettino revealed via Sky Sports: "I think it's a good night for us because the opportunity was to take the three points - three points that allow us to be in a good position in the table".
"We are focused and the most important thing is to finish well and to try to keep our position".
Tottenham Hotspur's English midfielder Dele Alli (C) shoots past Chelsea's Argentinian goalkeeper Willy Caballero to score their third goal during the English Premier League football match between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge in London on April 1, 2018.
The fact Kane got back to business against Watford will be a big boost for Tottenham given his uncharacteristically lean spell in spring.

The Argentinian wizard's speed of thought and feet around the box helped him to yet another hat-trick - the 46th of his career. And the Portuguese striker, now 33, had his first goalless game in 13 on Wednesday in Real's 2-1 victory over Bayern Munich.
Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris saved well from Andre Gray, Abdoulaye Doucoure, and Richarlison as Watford posed problems on the counterattack. "What more can you say about him. he's a fantastic striker and I'm happy he scored again". To be in the top four is most important.
An ankle injury had affected Kane in recent weeks but Pochettino believes he will be firing on all cylinders by the time the Three Lions begin their World Cup campaign in Russian Federation against Tunisia on June 18.
While a Mourinho departure could still be one or two seasons away, you've got to wonder what Pochettino would be able to achieve at Old Trafford with their inexhaustible resources. "I am sure that, first of all, he is going to perform for us in a very good way and then no doubt he'll arrive in a very good condition to the World Cup".
Goals from Dele Alli and Harry Kane, who marked his 150th Premier League appearance by finding the net, ensured a routine victory for Spurs, but they were unconvincing for long periods. "I feel good, I feel sharp".
Neville has remained downbeat about the Red Devils' performances this season despite on an impending second place finish and an FA Cup final to come.
But the north Londoners were more focused after the break and Kane's 48th-minute strike - his 27th Premier League goal of the season - settled the nerves.
