Pochettino calls for improved Wembley atmosphere

According to a talkSPORT article Mauricio Pochettino has called on ‘impatient’ Tottenham fans to create a better atmosphere at Wembley for his team to play in.

We have struggled to find our best form at the national stadium in the Premier League this season after dropping points to Chelsea, Burnley, Swansea and West Brom.

It adds that Pochettino’s side enjoyed an unbeaten record at White Hart Lane in the 2016/17 campaign, with the us winning 17 of 19 games at our former ground.

However after watching his side blow away Stoke in a 5-1 win at Wembley, the article adds that Pochettino has called on supporters to help them make the national stadium a place visiting teams will fear.

“First of all, we need to prepare [for] the game and play well because the atmosphere was a little bit flat in the stadium today,” Pochettino told talkSPORT.

He added: “You need to score and [have a good] performance for 90 minutes to win games. Maybe today the people were a little impatient and it translated to the team.But in the end, the fans were fantastic. And I think all together we need to create that atmosphere to help the team achieve what we want.”

It’s added how we secured our first win in five league games to stall a poor run of form, form which has all but ended their hopes of challenging Manchester City for the title but we have enjoyed contrasting fortunes in the Champions League.

We topped our group despite having holders Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund to contend with and the article said Pochettino shared his delight at watching his side deal better with playing in two elite level competitions having suffered a group stage exit in the Champions League last season.

“The team was so determined this season to prove we can cope with the pressure to play in the Champions League and Premier League and play well,”
“Because last season was the opposite. We were fantastic in the Premier League and in the Champions League we were nearly a disaster.

Pochettino added: “Maybe it was a little bit of a distraction to mix both competitions. But now it’s so important to be focused on the Premier League, to try to win games, be consistent, and try to have the possibility to be in the top four.”
