Tottenham lost 1-0 at Old Trafford playing without the Premier League’s top scorer, their biggest star, Harry Kane, finishing the game with just one real chance to score. Even so, Mauricio Pochettino avoided ‘blaming’ the defeat to injured Kane’s absence.
If Dele Alli scored before we conceded, maybe now the question would be different. It’s always about the result in football. Of course, you’re always going to miss your main striker and Kane is one of the best strikers. But it’s not fair to talk about Kane and we need to be fair with everyone
the Tottenham manager told Sky Sports soon after the final whistle, which found Manchester United victorious, thanks to an 81st-minute goal by Anthony Martial.
If Alli scored, be sure we’d be talking in a different way. If you analyse the game, it was even but the result was different. It was the best chance. It was the chance for 1-0 up but instead 1-0 down. Now, we move on
the Argentine said. A little later, in the news conference, he insisted that Spurs deserved a point in Manchester.
I think it was a good game, it was a shame to lose. It was even – chances for one and the other side. It was a tough game, I think we deserved the draw. The effort was fantastic from our players, I feel good, proud of the effort. We were unlucky to concede in last 10 minutes but it was our mistake to concede. The team fought a lot and deserved more
