Pochettino reflects on Tottenham’s first league win at Wembley

Mauricio Pochettino revealed his delight after Tottenham recorded their first league win at Wembley on Saturday.

Christian Eriksen’s strike early in the second half was enough for a Spurs side who have struggled to translate their stunning form at White Hart Lane last season to their temporary new home.

Pochettino, however, was relieved after the win: “The team played well. It was difficult to find the space. We had a lot of time on the ball but could not break down the opponent.

“In the second half we found better positions and moved the ball quickly, it was much better. We are always suffering if you don’t score the second goal. It was good, not great, but enough to win the three points.

“Last night Ben Davies was feeling unwell so we had to change but we were always going to play a back four. Jan Vertonghen can play at left-back.

“I am delighted we have won but it is impossible to stop you asking me about Wembley!”

Pochettino was also full of praise for goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who pulled off a couple of decent stops against the Cherries.

He added: “In the Premier League you can always concede but Hugo Lloris made two good saves for us. Georges-Kevin Nkoudou is OK, he has already asked to train after the game.”
