Tottenham might have come up with all three points against Brighton but former manager Harry Redknapp was not happy with our defending in the final minutes of the game.
Spurs had raced into a 2-0 lead, thanks to goals from Harry Kane and Erik Lamela. However, Anthony Knockaert pulled one back for the hosts in the 93rd minute.
The Englishman was responsible for the first goal we conceded and was in attack mode during stoppage time too.
“He [Pochettino] will be bothered by that last minute because it was a nightmare. It’s a poor goal. They’re stretched.
“At this stage of the game you’ve got no need. You’ve got to manage the game not get yourself stretched like that with two minutes to go. Danny Rose shouldn’t be going forward if he’s exhausted. Stay where you are. Keep the clean sheet. Defend first and foremost.”
The former manager is right as we suffered a similar fate against Inter Milan a few days earlier. Two late goals from the Italians meant we started our Champions League journey with a loss and we could have dropped more points at the Amex too.
Fortunately, we held on for three points but Pochettino has a lot of work to do before we play like we did last season.
Spurs are already six points behind league leaders Liverpool and we cannot afford any more mistakes for the remainder of the campaign.
