Report: Pochettino on what he wants to see from Tottenham Hotspur in every game

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino says he wants to see more fight and energy from his team.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino says he wants to see fight from his side in every game they play.

Spurs failed to produce anything like their best form against Crystal Palace over the weekend, with Harry Kane’s goal a consolation after a 2-1 Premier League defeat.

The boss was frustrated that his team couldn’t show similar performance levels to the game against Chelsea, revealing what he expects from his team moving forward.

“I think you can see that we don’t have a good performance. Maybe we didn’t show same energy as we did [against Chelsea],” he’s quoted by website London24.

“Because all games are different and you need to be ready for every game and ready to fight in every game.”

“In Premier League you need to forget the past and try to build the victory.”

The focus for Tottenham now turns to the FA Cup replay against Burnley this week.

It won’t be an easy game because of the fight and grit Sean Dyche’s team are showing at the moment and they will be confident having moved out of the bottom three in the league.

The games are coming thick and fast for Tottenham and they won’t always be able to produce stunning exhibitions of football, which makes it important for them to be able to win the ugly games.

Tottenham have a great chance of not just getting into the top four this season, but of also winning some domestic silverware.

They will only achieve those goals if they show the right character and attitude and that means not taking any games lightly.

Tottenham face Sunderland this weekend before the first leg of their League Cup semi-final against Sheffield United in the two games following the Burnley replay.
