‘The game against Wolves was completely unfair’ – Pochettino

Tottenham Hotspur ended their 2018 with a shock, suffering a disappointing loss at home to newly-promoted Wolves.

Spurs led the game going into half time thanks to a superb Harry Kane strike, but looked like a different side in the second half.

The crispness vanished from Tottenham’s game, replaced by lethargy, fatigue, and laziness.

Due to this drop in concentration, Spurs went on to concede three goals in the space of fifteen minutes, as Wolves snatched away all three points.

This could not have come at a worse time either, as Tottenham were just trying to put the squeeze on Liverpool at the top of the table.

Thankfully, Spurs got their 2019 off to the perfect start with a simple 3-0 win away to Cardiff, a result that was never in doubt after Kane’s goal in the opening few minutes.

Looking back on the Wolves game, Pochettino still believes it was unfair how his side lost, but put it down to a lack of discipline.

Poch said (Football London): “Always it’s important. When you assess the game against Wolves it was completely unfair. I think we played much, much better than Wolves but I think we dropped in our concentration in the last 20 minutes and we conceded three goals. When you see the data that we ran more than them, you say no, it wasn’t a problem that we were tired, just a concentration problem. A little bit about discipline, offensive and defensive. It’s terrible when a team like us didn’t get a shot on target in the second half, because we showed a lack of discipline, in both ways. Today so pleased because from the beginning the team showed massive energy. I think that is the team we want and expect to see and perform on the pitch.”

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. Yeh like it wasn’t fair that you left Molineux with three points a few months ago, but did hear us whining like a little girl, you were beat by a the better team on Saturday get over it, in the very near future we will be overtaking you so get ready to cry some more!

    • How is that possible? Jut the one season in the premiership. How on earth can Wolves get above Man U, Chelsea and le arse, you need to get a better perspective, as you sound ridiculous. You wouldn’t utter those words in a pub or to a group of people so why on here?:)

  3. How on earth can you say that Spurs played much – even MUCH! – better than Wolves? What sort of delusion is that? In the 2nd half Wolves quite simply marched Spurs off the turf – and this is not debatable! Get real, accept facts!

    • Yes, one good game followed by? Up the Palace, they put you in your place, thought you were much better than you were, methinks!!

  4. Oh Poch please do not allow yourself to sound so pathetic.We were beaten by a team that on the day were better than us,they simply wanted it more,Give Wolves the respect they deserve or one might think that you are getting in practice for the ManU job by finding excuses for poor performances.

  5. I suppose this argument ends when you find out that Wolves lost 2-0 to Crystal Palace at Molineaux. It simply goes to show that even a blind squirrel will find an acorn from time to time.
