'Disappointed but positive' - Pochettino seeks improvement after Leicester City defeat - Tottenham Hotspur, Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham Hotspur and Mauricio Pochettino took another hit, as the white Lily’s succumbed to yet another defeat in the season. No thanks to Leicester City’s James Maddison.

Leicester City came from behind to ruin the day for Pochettino, with VAR making two major calls to help decide the eventual winners of the tie.

Wilfried Ndidi was the first to hit the target, only to see his goal disallowed by the VAR for offside. Harry Kane however did the honours, to give the visitors the actual lead just before the half hour mark.

Tottenham thought they had doubled the lead after the break. But the VAR called against the visitors this time, and the goal was ruled out, with Heung-Min Son judged to be offside.

Leicester City would however find their way back. Ricardo Pereira equalising on 70 minutes, before James Maddison grabbed the winner with a strike from outside the area.

The result sees Tottenham Hotspur extend their frustrating start to the season. However, while Mauricio Pochettino admitted he is disappointed with the result, the manager has no intention of staying down.

Speaking to BTSport after the game, Mauricio Pochettino said: “That is football. It is true to concede two goals every game makes it difficult to win. Before we concede we were the best side. I am disappointed with the result but we have to keep working hard.”

“Both sides are affected by this situation [VAR]. If we score the second the game is over. It gives belief to a team that could have been dead. After we concede at 1-1 we had chances to score the second. But in Premier League it is the most beautiful league because it is never over. In the big picture, I am disappointed but very positive and optimistic.”

Pochettino added: “We need to improve our performance away from home. We are going to work hard and improve.”
