The start of the season for Tottenham Hotspurs has been a difficult one as the squad of Mauricio Pochettino has had to face off against some of the top clubs in the Premier League during the initial 3 months of the season.
Arsenal, Liverpool, Southampton, Manchester City are some of the top clubs that Tottenham Hotspurs has had to face so far in this season with a number of draws and defeats having been experienced along the way.
Tottenham Hotspur is currently located in the mid-section of the English standings and despite not being in the top spots of the Premier League, Mauricio Pochettino is optimistic about the future of his squad as he stated that his players are performing better as each match passes on.
“I have enjoyed my four months at Tottenham. We knew when we signed for Tottenham that we expected a tough period. We are in a very tough period in the club, but when you arrive to a club with big potential like Tottenham, a big club, and have the possibility to build something important, this is a very good challenge for us’’ Pochettino told the media.
Mauricio Pochettino signed a 5 year long deal with Tottenham Hotspur as he made his way from an outstanding time in charge of Southampton which attracted the attention of Tottenham and they were willing to sign him on such a long period of time but despite having signed for the upcoming 5 years, if Pochettino is not able to finish the current season in a top position in the Premier League then his managerial position at White Hart Lane could be in risk.
Tottenham suffered yet another thrashing at the hands of Liverpool at White Hart Lane after a 3-0 defeat during the weekend. Last season, Brendan Rodgers’ team ran out 5-0 winners in a performance that was inspired by Luis Suarez. A lot of changes to the teams have taken place since then with Tottenham bringing in former Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino to take the team back to the Champions League. Liverpool, meanwhile, lost their star asset in the former Suarez to Barcelona over the summer. Despite this, Tottenham looked far away from Liverpool throughout the 90 minutes.
After the match, Pochettino gave his damning verdict that Tottenham have to improve a lot in order to compete for a top four place. The North London team came into the encounter after having won the opening two matches, but this defeat is a major setback especially given that it occurs just before the international break. Most of the Tottenham players, who will not be involved in internationals over the next fortnight, will be reflecting on this defeat for a long period. Pochettino spoke about the importance of recovering from this defeat as soon as possible.
Tottenham have a tough round of fixtures coming up with matches in the Europa League followed by opponents like Arsenal and Manchester City in the league.
“Today was a very tough day for us. I think the key to our defeat was the start of the second half when there was a soft penalty. We played OK but were unlucky in the key moments. It was a very soft penalty but we need to improve. We need to build our confidence and build our future. We have a lot of games ahead. Sometimes you improve from your victories but you need to improve too from your defeats,” said Pochettino.
Tottenham is in an uncomfortable situation of late- it’s their player Vertonghen who has raised serious controversies for his bad play-acting at the club’s last match against Dnipro.
It seems that the Belgian footballer managed to mug up everything what is wrong with the game in a single moment of perfectly pure ridiculousness. The player has drawn severe criticisms from many quarters since then.
Last Friday. Tottenham Hotspur was having a match against Dnipro, the leading Ukranian club, in the 2nd half of the Europa League championship tie.
The Brit club lost out on the 1st leg 1-0 & when their Ukrainian opponent opened scoring in 2nd leg, Spurs were very much on the verge of losing the game.
But everything changed completely with the turn 62nd minute of the match. Jan walked into Roman Zozulya (Dnipro) & then suddenly crashed to ground, theatrically clutching the face.
It was certainly a very implausible, stupid dive from the Belgian. The 2 players had hardly touched ne another. However, Antony Gautier, the referee was befooled completely & he showed the red card to Zozulya.
That was something really unethical to the Ukrainian side as whatever the Tottenham player did was completely his own antics and there was hardly any trace of contribution from Zozulya. As a result, Dnipro were wrongfully reduced to 10 men which enabled Vertonghen’s club to go on with the winning title. They won the match with 3-1 status, progressing to next round.
The Belgian was not exactly repentant for his wrongful antics post the match. “I walked towards him. I walked up to him again & he gave me one”, said the Belgian stressing that it was the Dnipro player who made him crash to ground. “He gave me the reason to crash. It is his fault & not mine.”
