Tottenham Hotspur have had a horror-show of a week under Mauricio Pochettino, starting with a 7-2 loss in mid-week and ending with another 3-0 loss today.
Spurs were demolished by Bayern Munich at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the Champions League on Tuesday need, leaving fans in desperate need of a win to bounce back.
However, the team conceded to Brighton within two minutes after a Hugo Lloris error today and the home side continued to outplay spurs for the full 90 minutes.
Tottenham now have just three wins from 11 games this season, as well as being knocked out by Colchester United in the Carabao Cup.
Spurs are left fighting on three fronts this campaign and are already underperforming in two of these competitions.
Pochettino will now have some time away from first-team action with the international break falling over the next week.
The Argentine believes that this could help to change the dynamic and energy (Football London): “You never know when you arrive in the moments, sometimes you are in a good dynamic and the international break arrives and it changes completely after two weeks. I hope that it helps us to change the air, change the dynamic or energy. It is still so early in the season, we have the belief, it is so strong the belief. The last four or five days were tough after Bayern Munich and today, but all coaching staff this type of situation has happened.
“After five and a half years it is the first time that it is a really difficult situation but for sure that is going to be an experience that we use to be stronger and that type of experience makes us wise, makes us a better type of person, a better group of players and staff and all together we need to bounce back because all that we care about is this football club. We need to feel the responsibility.”
