Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has spoken on his side’s 3-1 defeat by Wolves in the Premier League on Saturday.
Goals from Willy Boly, Raul Jimenez and Helder Costa gave Wolves victory over Spurs at Wembley as Harry Kane’s strike was not enough to hand Pochettino’s side a point against the visitors.
Pochettino said his players dropped energy and focus, adding that in the last 20 minutes Tottenham conceded three goals.
“I think the game was under control in the first half,” Pochettino was quoted by Evening Standard as saying after the game.
“Maybe, it was easier than we expected in the first half to dominate the game and to play so easy. They played so deep, chasing us. We didn’t concede one chance.
“But in the second half I think we started to feel maybe the game was over and when you start to feel the game is over it’s tough to play in the way you play.
“You start to decide in the wrong way, you start to play too many long balls and to play more with your heart than your head. We started to spend a lot of energy.”
“It’s not enough to play 60, 70 minutes,” Pochettino added.
“You need to play your best for 95 minutes. Like today we dropped energy and focus and in the last 20 minutes we conceded three goals.”
