Mauricio Pochettino believes that his players’ spirit should be praised after their difficult 10-men win over Southampton at the new White Hart Lane yesterday.
Spurs lost Serge Aurier after they took the lead in the first half, before Hugo Lloris gifted the Saints a free goal after a failed Cruyff turn.
At 1-1, things did not look good for the Lilywhites, but they managed to carve out a superb breakaway second goal before half-time, before defending that lead with their lives.
Poch was pleased with the result, to say the least:
