Tottenham manager left frustrated by failure to beat Monaco

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has revealed his frustrations after his team failed to hold onto their 1-0 lead over Monaco, according to reports from the Mirror.

The Premier League side went up in the 35th minute courtesy of a goal from on-form Erik Lamela, but were eventually pegged back to end the match at 1-1 via a header from impact substitute Stephen El Shaarawy.

Pochettino was unhappy at the result and admitted that even though his team were performing better, his players were unable to kill off the game, a factor which cost them all three vital points.

“We lost two points. This is our feeling, because second half we were better,“ he said.

“But in the second half, 1-0 up, you need to kill the game. When you don’t kill the game off this can happen. They created two chances and the second, they scored.“

Despite the result, Spurs are still leading Group J following their previous 3-1 win over Qarabag in the first round of fixtures.

Tottenham will now travel to Liberty Stadium on Sunday to face Swansea City in the Premier League as they look to capitalize on last week’s 4-1 win over Manchester City.
