Pochettino comments on whether Tottenham have improved this season

Tottenham Hotspur have had a rather strange start to the season, taking four points from their first two games in the Premier League.

Spurs started off with a 3-1 win over Aston Villa, despite the newly-promoted team taking the lead early on. However, a late flurry for Tottenham with goals from Ndombele and Harry Kane saw the Lilywhites take all three points.

Next up came a visit to the Premier League champions, Manchester City, perhaps the toughest fixture in the calendar on paper.

Tottenham were outplayed from start to finish by Pep Guardiola’s men, with Man City peppering the Spurs goal.

However, Spurs somehow managed to scrape a 2-2 draw from the match with some last-ditch defending and clinical play in front of goal.

So, have Spurs improved on last season, a campaign in which they reached their first ever Champions League final?

Pochettino seems to think that people must wait until the transfer window shuts to decide (Football London): “At the moment it’s difficult to see. You need to be competitive and it’s difficult in the same time to improve in the pace you want, in the speed you want. We need to have patience and try to find in the same way that we’re being competitive to make sure we’re going to improve how you want. I think it’s going to be good to finish that period against Newcastle and Arsenal and then it’s going to help the two weeks to work and then when the transfer window closes in Europe it’s going to be very helpful for a team like us.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


    • Hmm, let’s see City and Liverpool have started the season with the virtually the same squad as last season. Arsenal are so much better than last season according to their fans, and have thrashed their first two opponents, who they were favoured to beat, by the huge margin of a single goal. Chelsea look all over the place. But it’s only Spurs who have issues!
