Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino addressed the media in the aftermath of his side's disappointing draw away at Watford yesterday, and opened up on the 'strange' conversation he shared with his players midway through the game at Vicarage Road, as quoted by popular football news website Football.London.

Yesterday's 1-1 draw with the Hornets leaves Tottenham a distant 15 points behind league leaders Manchester City, with Pep Guardiola's side having played a game less than Pochettino's men.

Despite Spurs fans' frustrations with the draw against Watford, their team did at least show some courage and fight to finish the game with a point, having been reduced to 10 men after just 52 minutes, when Davinson Sanchez received his marching orders for elbowing Richarlison.

And Pochettino told reporters how he shared a strange in-game conversation with his Tottenham players, with so many of his star men playing well, as quoted by Football.London:

"Harry Was very active. I am happy with his performance but then Son scored. I don't know. That conversation is strange in the game today. I thought Christian was good, Dele was good, Sonny was good, Harry was good and it's so difficult to play ten against 11."

Next up for the Lilywhites is a Champions League game against APOEL, before they welcome Stoke City to Wembley three days later, and a pair of wins will be vital for Pochettino's men, if they are to instil some confidence back into the squad.
