Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino: Wembley was not the problem

Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino: Wembley was not the problem

INCIDENTS: Barclays Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley, held at Wembley Stadium. If you remember the games that we played against Burnley at White Hart Lane, it was always very tough.

"We showed a lack of concentration at the end and that is hard to accept".

Tottenham lost to Chelsea last week after Marcos Alonso scored twice in a 2-1 win for the Blues, with Spurs replying through a Michy Batshuayi own goal.

Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham Hotspur side are now 10th in the Premier League table with three points from a possible six this season, having beaten Newcastle United in their opening game, before coming unstuck to Chelsea at Wembley.

Spurs thought they had secured only a third win in 12 games at their temporary home thanks to Dele Alli's goal early in the second half.

Tottenham had 28 attempts at a goal but had to wait until the 49th minute for Alli to find the net after Ben Mee slipped trying to make a clearance.

Mauricio Pochettino accused his Tottenham players of throwing away the chance of their first Wembley win of the season.

However, Wood snatched a late point for the Clarets when he raced onto Robbie Brady's through ball and smashed his finish beyond the helpless Hugo Lloris. "We'll try to forget the surroundings and try to take on the game".

"They got a goal from a scruffy situation but we rose after that and we were terrific", Dyche said. "When you have the three points in your hands you can't concede in that way". It is better it happen now.

It leaves Pochettino with much to mull over during the upcoming worldwide break, and the Tottenham boss was frustrated with his side's inability to hold to all three points.
