Ajustar Comentario Impresión

Victory for Leicester made it three Premier League games without a win for Spurs, who improved markedly after the break and rained pressure on the Foxes goal.

While the book details the secrets of Tottenham's success, it also explains disagreements with key players such as Eric Dier during the campaign.

The result left the north London giants still outside the top four and manager Pochettino scratching his head for answers.

The dip has also coincided with the release of Pochettino's book, 'Brave New World', which documents his time in charge of Tottenham.

Young will be needed if Nemanja Matic cannot go after limping off against Watford.

Spurs are now among the teams fighting to finish in the top four. "When we watched this goal at the beginning of the move, there was good quality". Namely its pay structure. The goals from Jamie and Riyad were fantastic and this is amazing for the future.

"The reality is the gap is massive with Manchester City", Pochettino added.

And so it has proved.

Harry Kane smashed home his 10th Premier League goal his last 10 appearances to give Spurs hope, but Llorente and Eriksen's misses sealed the Lilywhites' fate.

Full-back Danny Rose is likely to be recalled but Harry Winks is a doubt because of illness. Chris Wood scored from the lone striker spot on Wednesday, but he may be rested this weekend as they cycle through players. But their lack of focus is clear for all to see. He said good luck and get on with it.

"The most recent meeting, in May, was Leicester's heaviest Premier League home defeat".

Christian Eriksen had an opportunity to bring Spurs back into the game, however, he missed a sitter that appeared easier to score than anything else. If you lie inside, you want to show you are different.

Since Pochettino's side thrashed Liverpool at Wembley 4-1 on 22nd October, they have won just one of their past five top flight encounters and kept a solitary clean sheet thanks to a 1-0 triumph over Crystal Palace.

Tottenham Hotspur's coach Mauricio Pochettino. You can't expect players to stay when they can double their salaries at another club.

"Our performance in the first half disappointed us a lot". Tottenham have a choice.

The best offensive option for Burnley right now is not one of their forwards but midfielder Robbie Brady. This is the time when they normally surge.
