Wolves vs Tottenham, Premier League

05 November 2018

Juan Foyth gave away two penalties in his Premier League debut for Tottenham, which Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez both cooly converted to give the Londoners a tense final ten minutes.

Goalkeeper Lloris warned that Spurs had to tighten up after losing leads against Inter Milan and PSV in Europe already this season. "It's hard not to feel a little bit unfairly done by", he said.

The lack of a midfield presence resulted in a thrillingly open, back-and-forth game with each side having - but failing with - a number of chances in the game's opening 25 minutes. Those are things we need to be careful about, we need to have more discipline and be more responsible.

"It is the responsibility of the players".

"When I arrived at Tottenham, the first video I think Daniel (Levy) or the people showed me was of Tottenham Hotspur, we are talking about the glory".

"If we have to play a different way, we have to play a different way".

"We were not rewarded with a point, but we go with our heads high".

Harry Kane's eighth goal of the season gave the visitors a 3-0 lead before they almost crumbled under intense pressure from the hosts. "It's about communications, feelings and is more up to the players".

While Spurs may struggle to sign players in the transfer window, they have no problem in getting their top dogs to commit as Alli followed Harry Kane, Erik Lamela, Son Heung-min, Davinson Sanchez and Harry Winks in agreeing new contracts over the past few months.

Now, ahead of Tuesday's must-win Champions League game at home to PSV Eindhoven, Lloris has challenged his team-mates to be smarter.

"The big thing is to win but to look at the long-term, you need one way to play and the philosophy is not only to put 11 players on the pitch and play football".

Pochettino said: "When we arrive in that situation we need to learn about how to play seriously, not make mistakes and not give opponents such poor actions that they can stay in the game".

"We are very close to creating, in terms of facilities, one of the best clubs in the world", he said.

Wolves piled on the pressure but were unable to find a way past Lloris as Spurs held on to climb back into the top four.

"Oh, we'll be ready".

"We have Arsenal next week, these are the games you want to be involved in".

The South Korean played a one-two with Lamela, who brought down the return pass on his chest and poked a right-footed finish through the legs of Rui Patricio for his fourth goal in his last five Premier League starts.
