Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino makes major claim about trophyless season

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino makes major claim about trophyless season

The Spurs manager remained phlegmatic following a dramatic 1-0 defeat at West Bromwich Albion that came with a late, scrambled stoppage-time goal. It is mental and in this [West Brom] game we lacked a bit of aggression in key moments. "Tomorrow we'll see how he is and after tomorrow we see if he starts the training again".

Pochettino's men are now in the midst of a worrying run of form, having taken just four points from their last four Premier League outings, and there is a genuine concern that they could miss out on the Champions League places, what with Chelsea's resurgence in form.

Spurs' 1-0 defeat to West Brom on Saturday allowed Chelsea to close to within two points of their London rivals with a 1-0 win over Liverpool.

"We are ambitious. Like in football, when you need patience to break down your opponent - we need that".

Pochettino's side still need to fight to secure a top-four finish and need positive results against Newcastle and Leicester in their final two games this season. He knows he needs to work hard and score goals.

Based on an onsite investigation, the mission says at least 36 people were killed - 30 of them children. Mohammad Radmanish said no civilians were present.

"It's so important, of course". It's a bit disappointing because we could have managed the end of the season in a better way.

Aside from Champions League concerns, Pochettino found himself fielding questions about two Belgian defenders. "We hope, and I believe, that he can be available for Leicester".

Now, this is where things get interesting, as Presse Océan then claim that "according to their information", Ranieri is in talks with Spurs, whom Pochettino is set to leave at the end of the season after three years of "loyal service". We were very confident.

For Darren Moore's West Brom, a third victory of his five, unbeaten games in caretaker charge meant another step towards reconnecting with their supporters, irrespective of the eventual outcome of the season.

"I feel from the crowd today that there was an excellent energy in the football club". But I understand people want more.
