Mauricio Pochettino 'a little bit worried' over Mousa Dembele injury

  • Rivaldo Says Pochettino Should Move To Real Madrid, Take Kane With Him

Tottenham have already thrown away leads against Watford (twice), Inter Milan and PSV Eindhoven this season and, having almost done so again at Wolves, captain Hugo Lloris has urged his teammates to add some pragmatism to Pochettino's philosophy and learn when to simply see out the game.

"With the 3-0 lead I think everyone thought the game was over, but when you make a mistake you need to play more seriously and not concede so cheaply", the Spurs boss told Sky Sports.

The visitors seemed on course for a straightforward victory when Harry Kane struck to establish a three-goal buffer on the hour, but Foyth's fouls allowed Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez to set up a tense final 10 minutes.

Tottenham had made their best ever Premier League start prior to Monday's defeat to Manchester City and they will try and get their campaign back on track against Wolves on Saturday. Pochettino said he was down to "18, 19 players", with the problems most pronounced in midfield where Eric Dier, Mousa Dembélé and Victor Wanyama are out.

"When I arrived at Tottenham, the first video I think Daniel (Levy) or the people showed me was of Tottenham Hotspur, we are talking about the glory".

"It's been a weird season, but I am so happy now because I have started the new season of House of Cards". Since I arrived here we created a very good culture about fight and altogether the belief.

A win on Tuesday is the minimum requirement with a home game against Inter Milan and a trip to Barcelona to come, but even that might not be enough, and a defeat or draw against Mark Van Bommel's team will nearly certainly mean the end, and Europa League football in the new year.




"We need to be more aggressive".

Former England global Gary Neville was full of praise for Mauricio Pochettino after Tottenham Hotspur's 3-2 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday evening.

Spurs have played a lot of games in quick succession in recent weeks so we're expected Mauricio Pochettino to freshen things up from the side that beat Wolves on Saturday night.

Nuno Espirito Santo's side have now lost three games in a row and slipped to 11th in the standings and the Portuguese coach lamented that their disallowed goal did not stand.

"He [Wanyama] got a knock against West Ham", Pochettino said. "Maybe his ligament is damaged but after the scan today we will know better".

GK Hugo Lloris, 8 - Produced three good saves in quick succession early in the second half, denying Jimenez and Helder Costa before getting down to palm Neves' shot away from the bottom corner.

"If we have to play a different way, we have to play a different way".
