You Start To See Reality - Mauricio Pochettino On Tottenham's European Level

  • Mauricio Pochettino Tottenham

If Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino thought Wednesday's match in Eindhoven was not a "must win" match, he'll certainly think differently about his club's next match in the Champions League against PSV in London on November 6.

"Although there have been games where he's been superb - in one recently he made two or three saves and got a result out of it".

But Pochettino said his team only had themselves to blame.

A 2-2 draw with Eredivise champions PSV Eindhoven this week isn't likely to be good enough for the Lilywhites, with Internazionale and Barcelona now clear at the top of a most challenging group.

He also has this to say about the red card his team got in the game: "In my opinion I think no, but we can not blame the referee".

"This type of game, when you dominate and are much better and have the possibility to win the game, at the end that can happen".

"I think it's easy to judge the game", he said.

And speaking of Powerball: That game's next drawing is Wednesday, for an estimated jackpot of $620 million. But Brock said she doesn't plan on buying a ticket. "I'm gonna buy a home for my children", another said.

Under-fire Lopetegui not thinking about sack as Real slide continues
Lopetegui's side were stung twice inside 13 minutes when first Jose Luis Morales and then Roger Marti, from the spot, scored. His dismissal is now inevitable and only a matter of time until the Real Madrid president finally pulls the trigger.

PSV, the 1988 European champion and ideal so far this season in the Dutch Eredivisie, has failed to win any of its Champions League matches this this year, following a winless campaign last season. We had the chances when the game was open, but you can always concede. We didn't force it and that's why our feeling is so bad.

It was remarkably similar to the opening game of their Group B campaign at Inter Milan, when they were 1-0 up with five minutes to go and left the San Siro empty-handed. It was under control, we were playing well and the PSV fans were disappointed. "One day when I was very young one manager said to me you don't need to apologise after I made a big mistake, because only the player on the pitch can make a mistake", he said.

"Hugo doesn't need to apologise to myself or the team".

'It was an action in football that happens often and of course sometimes that happens'.

Back-to-back losses to Barcelona and Inter left both these teams in need of a win, and while a point does not rule out their progress to the last 16, neither Spurs nor PSV will be overly happy.

"Now we need to win three games that we have to play and some results that help us to achieve a place for qualification - but it's hard".

Starting XI: Lloris (2), Trippier (8), Alderweireld (5), Sanchez (7), Davies (6), Dier (5), Dembele (5), Eriksen (8*), Lucas (6), Son (6), Kane (7). A few mistakes led to their equaliser. It went against us but we should have finished the game off - we made it hard for ourselves.
