Why we lost against Watford – Tottenham coach, Pochettino

Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino has explained why his side lost 2-1 against Watford in the Premier League.
Goals from Troy Deeney and Craig Cathcart ensured victory for the home side.

Pochettino said Spurs were defeated by Watford because his players were so relaxed during the first half of the encounter.
“First half we were so relaxed, so sloppy,” Pochettino was quoted by DailyMail as saying.
“We dominated the game but we weren’t aggressive enough.
“When you want to win and show you are a contender you cannot say we are going to play football for five minutes and in the second half we are going to win.
“In two set-pieces we concede two goals. If you want to be a contender, if you want to be on the top you cannot concede this type of action. You need more strength defending because in that situation it is when you really show that you want to win. It is not about the talk.
“It is the reality and everyone saw the reality. It is so easy to explain what happened on the pitch in 95 minutes.”
He added: “When you lose you must learn and improve but my disappointment is when you win and maybe you didn’t deserve to win, why no learn?
“During the week I was trying to explain to the players we weren’t as great as the perception and the reality was completely different.”
