Mauricio Pochettino claimed he was not disappointed after Tottenham Hotspur were condemned their second successive Premier League defeat for the first time since the final two games of the 2015-16 season.
Spurs were outclassed in all departments against a Liverpool side who maintained their 100% start to the new campaign.
It was a strangely subdued performance from Mauricio Pochettino’s side, who changed formation in the early stages and never seemed to get to grips with Liverpool’s pace and quick passing in midfield.
However, the Spurs boss has failed to panic (in public at least) and instead focused on the fact that we should have been awarded a penalty in injury time.
Heung-min Son was fouled in the penalty area by Sadio Mane and referee Michael Oliver incorrectly pointed for a goal kick, rather than the penalty spot.
Pochettino told BBC Sport: “I am not disappointed. In the second half we made mistakes but we were pushing. The goals we conceded came from our own mistakes, but I am calm – we need time to get to our best. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.
“Plus, I think it was a penalty at the end by [Sadio] Mane on Son [Heung-min]. If we had scored that penalty it would have been 2-2 and we would be having a different interview.”
