Pochettino gives his verdict on Tottenham draw

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has stated that he is not happy with a point from yesterday’s clash with West Brom, saying his side should have won the game.

Dele Alli’s opener at The Hawthorns was cancelled out by a James McClean strike for the hosts, with the teams sharing the spoils in a 1-1 draw.

The result stretches Spurs’ unbeaten run to 14 Premier League games, but keeps the North London club at arms length from the top four.

Pochettino said after the game that he felt that his side could have won the game and felt that the result was two points dropped.

“I’m not satisfied,” Pochettino told Sky Sports. “The effort was brilliant, but the feeling is that we dropped two points.

“It was a very difficult game with the (windy) conditions and the way they played. I am happy with the effort and we showed good solidarity… But now we need to keep working and look forward.”

Spurs remain three points adrift of the top four and could not capitalise on Manchester United’s stalemate with West Ham, staying in fifth place.

The White Hart Lane outfit face Monaco in the Europa League in midweek before hosting Newcastle in domestic action next weekend.
