Pochettino sounds a lot more positive after the North London Derby draw

Tottenham Hotspur have now played two of the big six away from home this season, despite only playing four Premier League matches.

So far, the Lilywhites have yet to lose any of these tough away matches, after they drew 2-2 to Arsenal at the Emirates yesterday, following the 2-2 at the Etihad.

While this is a good point to get on the board, Spurs will be gutted with the result after leading the game 2-0 in the first half.

Goals from Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane were cancelled out by Lacazette and Aubameyang as the spoils were shared in North London.

Pochettino has been talking about how unsettled his team is in recent weeks, especially after they lost 1-0 to Newcastle at home last time out (Sky Sports).

However, with a good away point and the transfer window shutting tonight, the Argentine sounds far more positive about Tottenham’s future.

Let’s hope that they can start to pick up some wins.

Pochettino said (Football London): “I think to try to find the balance again is the most important. To try to find that again we need that togetherness and to work really, really hard, altogether. The team wasn’t settled. I told you from day one when we started the pre-season in London and moved to Singapore, that is why I wasn’t happy, I was a little bit worried about the situation, because we knew very well what was going on. I am optimistic, happy, what is most important is to all be on the same page, with the club. That players have a clear idea where we want to arrive and how we want to move, clear minds like today Christian and different players, tomorrow they’re only going to be focused on Tottenham, not on thinking about different things that make management so difficult. But the most important thing is we knew what was going on when we finished the Champions League final, it’s about learning from our mistakes and of course from now it’s to decide on a strategy so we’re in a position that we should be.”
