Mauricio Pochettino admitted he is disappointed that his Spurs side dropped points at home to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

Salomon Rondon gave the visitors a surprise early lead at the national stadium and while Harry Kane equalised 16 minutes from time, West Brom stood firm for a gutsy draw.

“I think we are disappointed because the effort from us was massive but we conceded the goal so early in the game, and they had the belief to play deep, so it was hard for us to move the ball,” Pochettino said after the game.

“In the last 15 minutes we increased our level and created a lot of chance to score but we weren’t clinical, it is always difficult in the Premier League when you concede a goal so early, it changes the way the team wants to play.

“We took a lot of risks trying to score and we didn’t concede many chances, they had the chance when they scored and one in the second half. The result is 1-1 and I’m disappointed because we lose two points. Now, we need to look forward now and try to win the next game.”

Pochettino also briefly discussed goalscorer Harry Kane, insisting his goal does not make the draw any sweeter.

“It’s very good for him and the team to rescue one point, but because we drew we are very disappointed.”
