Poch on United defeat and transfer talk

Mauricio Pochettino travelled back to London a disappointed man following Tottenham Hotspur’s opening day Premier League defeat to Manchester United.

Once Eriksen had squandered a good early chance, Spurs never looked like scoring and, unfortunately for the Londoners, they went behind when Walker poked the ball past Michel Vorm in the first half just as Wayne Rooney was about to shoot.

The Spurs boss admitted after the match that he is still looking to bolster his squad with some new signings ahead of the window closing at the end of the month.

“Today we were unlucky. It was very frustrating and disappointing in the dressing room,” Pochettino said.

“In the first 20 minutes we dominated the game and created a chance.

“After that mistake we conceded a goal.

“I think we created more chances and deserved more than to lose 1-0.

“I think we played well and a high level. But it’s true that when you make a mistake when you have the player in front of you like Rooney, like Depay, like (Ashley) Young then will get a chance and score.”

Harry Kane failed to test Romero all afternoon and Pochettino admits he needs more firepower up front.

“Yes, this is very clear,” he said. “We need to add more players.”
