Given that Tottenham conceded a goal very early in the game, and played with ten men after the 52th minute, someone could say that leaving Watford’s stadium with a point was not a bad result. Mauricio Pochettino definitely found positives in his team’s attitude.
You can’t win games easy, especially in this league, but you learn a lot about the character. It was important for us to change the feelings. We were disappointed after our last game at Leicester (they lost 2-1)
the Argentine told reporters, spotting a silver lining in Tottenham’s dark cloud (results-wise, in the Premier League, lately).
We are in a period now where we are suffering things against us. It is good for the group to try and learn. It is a long-term project. It will be good for the future. You want to win, but in tough moments you learn. In the last few games we have deserved more. You can’t question the performance or character
the Tottenham manager said. Last talking about Davinson Sanchez’s red card (the Colombian elbowed Watford’s Richarlison), Pochettino chose his words carefully, saying
I’m not going to complain but the player said it wasn’t his intention. We will have to analyse it in private.
