Pochettino rips defenders as Tottenham succumbs to Watford

Lucas Moura Tottenham 2018-19

Elsewhere, Manchester United returned to winning ways after they beat Burnley 2-0 on Sunday in their Premier clash away for home.

In the early stages of the new campaign, the Blues sit second in the Premier League table after just four games.

"It is so painful to concede two goals like this", Pochettino said.

"The people talk about winning, but it's only the start of September and it's a long way to go". The surprising hosts have gotten off to a hot start on the season, conceding just two goals in three matches, just as the Spurs have done.

"We need to show more respect to this competition", Pochettino said.

Yet with Dembele's exit seemingly on the cards, Wanywama has around four months to prove to Pochettino that he can still be a star in the Tottenham midfield, and show that Spurs wouldn't need to splash out to replace the Belgian when the January transfer window opens. "Because he has warned them and some of them have not heeded the warning, I can't remember him being that annoyed [as he was in his post-match interview]". The Premier League is so, so tough.

Pochettino was left exasperated with his side's defending and is demanding a significant improvement when they return from the two-week global break.

"With Watford, I always worry they will have that dip and look like a team cascading towards relegation - but I like the manager".

"It is disappointing because in the second half we scored, but then be more aggressive, be more strong in the situation [where Watford scored], because in every single game, you are going to find this sort of situation", he said.

Tottenham will play their Premier League game with Manchester City at Wembley on Monday, October 29.

United's French global Paul Pogba had a 69th-minute penalty saved by Burnley's former Manchester City keeper Joe Hart but despite the red card Mourinho's side hung on comfortably for their second win of the season.

Pochettino followed that up after the defeat to Watford by saying: "In the week I was trying to explain to the players we weren't as great as the perception".

"It's a chance for everyone to say "come on we need to compete".

"Everybody is happy because to get four wins in a row is not easy and we are enjoying it, the players, the supporters", Gracia said.
