Pochettino said: “I’m disappointed because we dominated, but in football you need to score when you create chances and dominate. We had clear chances but we were unlucky in front of goal. This is football.

“One minute in the second half changed the game and it’s true, we dominated, but we needed to score. It’s disappointing because we deserved more.

“We need to stop thinking about the Europa League for the time being, focus on the Premier League and the Capital One Cup and in February, think about this competition again.”
