Poch on Spurs’ smallest Premier League Wembley crowd ever

Tottenham Hotspur cruised to a 3-1 win at home to Southampton last night, but unfortunately not many people were there to actually see it.

Only just over 33,000 turned up to watch the dominant display from Poch’s men, which was Tottenham’s lowest ever Premier League attendance at Wembley.

There may have been a few factors contributing to the lack on fans, one being the bitter loss to Arsenal at the weekend.

With two huge home ties against Chelsea and Inter Milan last week, many people may have shelled out for those tickets instead of struggling Southampton.

Midweek fixtures are also always a little disappointing in terms of turnout, as not many people can commit to an evening match after work.

Whatever the case, the lack of crowd didn’t seem to make much of a difference for Spurs, as they collected all three points and leapfrogged both Chelsea and Arsenal into third.

Pochettino had this to say on the small crowd (Football London): I think we cannot ask more from our fans. Of course it was a difficult evening but it is for the players and fans and we cannot ask for more, I think we need to find our own motivation, sometimes this kind of game happens.

“After the defeat to Arsenal you can understand the disappointment of the fans and today, this evening to come here to Wembley is so tough, I completely understand.

“I hope in the future to provide better performance and make happy our fans and our fans wanting to come here to share the happiness. But today nothing to say, because to come to Wembley was tough and I understand why Wembley wasn’t great in the atmosphere.”
