Tottenham Hotspur morning round-up: Pochettino offers excuses for defeat to Liverpool

A round up of news stories this morning related to Tottenham Hotspur.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino told the Tottenham Hotspur website that he felt his team deserved to take a point from the game against Liverpool.

The Reds ran out 3-2 winners at Anfield, which saw them close the gap on the Premier League’s top four.

Pochettino claims it wasn’t easy for his team to play in such a big game so shortly after a big match against Arsenal.

Pochettino was also quoted by Goal after the game suggesting that his players are disappointed and tired.

He claims that the only thing that his team need to improve is giving away sloppy chances in the first half of big games similar to this once.

ESPN has quoted on loan Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon as promising to smile more in photos.

The Spurs owned star moved to Everton on the final day of the transfer window last week and was snapped looking glum as he posed in Everton colours and with the club’s shirt.

He’s revealed that he’s been getting a lot of banter for the pictures on Twitter.
