The former Tottenham chairman has suggested that Pochettino should have included Erik Lamela in the starting lineup against Watford on Saturday afternoon.
The Argentina international attacking midfielder started the Premier League game at Vicarage Road on the substitutes’ bench and came on in the 64th minute.
Former Tottenham chairman Lord Sugar has suggested on Twitter that 25-year-old Lamela, who can also operate as a winger, should have started the match against Watford, which ended in a 1-1 draw.
Dont know why MP does not start Lamela— Lord Sugar (@Lord_Sugar) December 2, 2017
He played him at Leicester and he was good https://t.co/PDT1ompJFx— Lord Sugar (@Lord_Sugar) December 2, 2017
Give the bloke a chance Alan, he’s been out for over year, surely if he was fully fit we would’ve started him today. Have no doubt he will feature for us prominently when he’s fully-fit.— Ricky Sacks (@RickSpur) December 2, 2017
Tottenham’s performance against Watford was disappointing and left much to be desired.
Failure to pick up all three points at Vicarage Road has further dented Spurs’ chances of winning the Premier League title this season.
Spurs are sixth in the Premier League table at the moment with 25 points from 15 matches, as many as 15 points behind leaders Manchester City, who have a game in hand.
