Pochettino worried as Tottenham’s away slump continues

Mauricio Pochettino admitted that Tottenham’s away form is a major concern after they fell to defeat at Leicester.

Leicester came from behind to clinch a 2-1 win, extending the frustrating start to the season for Pochettino’s side.

Wilfried Ndidi had a goal chalked off by VAR in the first half, before Harry Kane gave the visitors the actual lead just before the half hour mark with a remarkable finish.

Serge Aurier thought he had doubled Tottenham’s lead after the break, but VAR struck again, ruling that Son Heung-Min was offside in the buildup.

From thinking they were 2-0 up, Spurs soon conceded two goals at the wrong end, with Ricardo Pereira equalising on 70 minutes, before James Maddison grabbed the winner with a strike from outside the box.

Pochettino told BT Sport: “That is football. It is true to concede two goals every game makes it difficult to win. Before we concede we were the best side. I am disappointed with the result but we have to keep working hard.

“Both sides are affected by this situation [VAR]. If we score the second the game is over. It gives belief to a team that could have been dead. After we concede at 1-1 we had chances to score the second. But in Premier League it is the most beautiful league because it is never over. In the big picture, I am disappointed but very positive and optimistic.”

Tottenham are yet to win an away match in the Premier League since January, a run that is concerning Pochettino.

“We need to improve our performance away from home. We are going to work hard and improve.”
