Mauricio Pochettino Tottenham

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino was happy with the reaction from the players after their 3-1 win over Chelsea.

The manager predicted that we would “crash” after our 3-0 win over Manchester United at the start of the season, as per the Evening Standard, and sure enough, Spurs lost the game against Watford 2-1.

The Argentine claimed that some players acted like they had won the title after the win at Old Trafford, and the manager was quoted (h/t Evening Standard) saying:

“I was so pleased after the Chelsea game.

“The most important thing is to keep humble. I was so disappointed after the victory at Old Trafford. I remember a lot of players talking about winning the title. It was only the beginning of the season and another three points.”

The manager wanted the team to stay humble and believed the Chelsea performance could be used by the side ahead of their important clash in the Champions League.
