Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino found two troublesome issues with Spurs’ loss to Newcastle United in the Premier League today.

According to Football365, Tottenham Hotspurs’ Mauricio Pochettino has raised issues over both the result and manner of loss. In today’s 1-0 loss to Newcastle United;

“I’m really disappointed with the result and the performance and I cannot justify our performance today,”

“It was a really cheap goal to concede, similar to the one against Aston Villa and that worries me.

Pochettino added; “What also worried me, is that we showed the consistency and capacity to get forward. That you need in these types of games, but we dominated possession and we didn’t create any chances.

“We never found the capacity to break down the defence. They (Newcastle) were really organised and they showed the ability to be a really solid team. Then they began to be aggressive.”

Pochettino’s reaction comes after his side gave a somewhat tamed performance, against a struggling Newcastle United side.

Newcastle had previously lost their first two games in the Premier League season, gaining their first three points today.
