Tottenham Hotspur sank to their first defeat of the season today as Newcastle came to visit the new stadium, defeating the Lilywhites 1-0.
The Magpies took the lead through a pretty simple move in the first half which was finished off cooly by Joelinton.
Spurs were never able to recover as they lacked a cutting edge for the third week in a row, despite enjoying hefty amounts of possession against Newcastle.
The likes of Harry Kane, Lucas Moura, and Heung Min Son barely had a sniff of the opposition net and Spurs didn’t really come close to scoring in the 90 minutes.
The European transfer window is still open for another week and Tottenham fans may be worried that their squad will be weakened even more in that time.
Pochettino has revealed that the current crop is the most unsettled Tottenham side he has worked with in his six years in North London.
He said (Football London): “Why you try to get me to tell you something you know better than me. You have more information than me. You know very well and I told you in pre-season, before Aston Villa, after Aston Villa, positive result or negative result the group is still unsettled. We need to find solutions. We have one week more to wait and see what happens in the last 10 days.
“I think this is my sixth season and the most unsettled group we are working with. That is why we are relaxed and calm. Some situations we cannot fix. Nothing to say about that, situations that are going on in the squad. Still we need to wait.
“That is the circumstances after playing the Champions League on June 1, we knew that some situations like this would happen but for us and the club it’s difficult to handle. What can we do? We can only wait. I say again, you have for sure more information than me about what’s happening in the market and that’s why I cannot do more than try to help the team find the best dynamic to train and not to create too many problems and be a person who is not being very emphatic, but understand every single situation and try to get a good result.”
