Mauricio Pochettino: Less than impressed

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino believes his side “missed two points” after a 1-1 draw against Liverpool at Anfield. 

Spurs only managed to close the gap on top of the table Leicester by one point, and the Foxes are now four points ahead with one game in hand.

Pochettino’s side fought for a hard earned draw against Liverpool at Anfield, and it could have been worse when Philippe Coutinho put the home side ahead.

But striker Harry Kane scored a stunning equaliser to salvage a point for Spurs, who will be watching on nervously as Leicester face Southampton on Sunday.

Speaking after the game, Pochettino said: “The first half was equal but we played well. The feeling after the game is that we missed two points. I am happy and very pleased with the performance.

“In the second half we were better, we had chances. Liverpool had chances too but I am happy. Today was a hard game.

“It was difficult to come to Liverpool and get the three points. It was maybe difficult to score the second goal but we played to win and in football sometimes you can’t win every game.

“Leicester have a tough game against Southampton but we need to believe. Leicester deserve to be in the place they are but in football anything can happen. We have to fight until the end of the season.”
