Mauricio Pochettino: Pleased with Spurs' performance

Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham need to find a way to beat teams like Leicester City that play with a deep defence and use long balls.

Tottenham dominated large spells of Wednesday night’s game at White Hart Lane but ultimately ended up empty-handed after Robert Huth struck late to move Leicester back level with Arsenal at the top of the Premier League.

Pochettino believes Leicester fully deserve to be where they are in the table, but he was frustrated that his side were unable to turn their dominance into any goals.

“So far they deserve full credit,” Pochettino said of Leicester.

“I am very disappointed because we deserved more in the end. But full credit for them, for Leicester, they deserve to stay in the place that they are.

“Nothing to say, only that we need to work more to try to improve and win games when we are in front of an opponent like Leicester, that are strong, play deeper, always long balls, and they believe in their way.

“The frustration, the disappointment is that we gave all, a big effort from the players, they always tried to play and tried to create. We created the chances, we had the better possibilities to score. It is for that that it is too difficult and it’s hard to accept the result.”
