Mauricio Pochettino hints at January transfers to fix problems
Spurs fielded a much-changed side from the one that lost to Leicester City at the weekend. Tory Parrott, Oliver Skipp and Japhet Tanganga all started while Harry Kane wasn’t even in the squad.
We also featured several experienced players in the XI but couldn’t break down Colchester in 90 minutes.
The game went to penalties, with Christian Eriksen and Lucas Moura missing their spot-kicks. Tom Lapslie didn’t miss the final effort from the spot as the Colchester fans invaded the pitch to celebrate a big win.
This was a disappointing performance from Spurs and Mauricio Pochettino claimed that having an unsettled squad isn’t helping us win games (h/t Football.london):
“When you have an unsettled squad always it’s difficult and you lose time and then you need time to recover the time you lose. That’s where we are.
“Maybe our performances are good but you need this extra, which is mental, connection, it’s energy to be all together, not to have different agendas in the squad.”
Pochettino also spoke about dipping in the winter transfer window and asked for patience to fix the problems:
“Look, I am only telling you how I feel. We are working so hard to try and put on the same page.
“We need time, we are going to have time to fix that.
“January is going to be a good opportunity to try and fix this type of situation and sort it.”
The manager added that he expected to keep working in the upcoming transfer windows to solve this problem.
Transfer issues for Tottenham
Spurs finally made a few signings in the summer after going two windows without adding a player. They also got rid of several players such as Michel Vorm, Fernando Llorente and Kieran Trippier, but didn’t add anyone for these positions.
Danny Rose and Christian Eriksen were two players who were linked with exits in the summer (h/t Sun), while Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen are free agents at the end of the season.

The uncertainty regarding the future of certain players won’t help the side and hopefully, we can arrest this slide and beat Southampton at the weekend.
