Tottenham Hotspur have now won just four games from 14 this season as they lost 2-1 away from home at Anfield this evening.
Spurs took the lead inside one minute against the league leaders, but failed to defend that lead as Henderson and Salah struck in the second half to wipe out Kane’s goal.
The mind drifts back to big away fixtures against Olympiacos and Arsenal in which Spurs also took the lead and handed the home sides two goals to get back into the tie.
Despite the complete one-way traffic at Anfield today and the fact that Spurs were hanging on from the second minute onwards, Pochettino seemed happy with his team’s display.
Poch said (Football London): “We played well but when we scored early the team tried to defend. I think the first half was difficult to connect and play. The second half the game was under control more and we started creating chances. When you don’t score you know the crowd are going to push the team on here at Anfield.
“It depends. Different faces during the game. I thought we played well. Of course, when we scored so early the team tried to defend and we missed a bit to play, a little too much with the ball. In the first half, it was difficult to connect and play and try to go forward and dominate the game how we planned. Of course, when we scored so early it was like we need to defend, defend, defend.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
This is the most worrying thing for me. If Pochettino thinks Spurs played well today and the likes of Eriksen, Rose, and Aurier did a good job, then the problems simply will not get fixed. You can’t go around talking like everything is sunshine and rainbows in the midst of a crisis.
