Dele Alli claimed that Tottenham got carried away after their resounding wins over Everton and Bournemouth. Tottenham scored 11 goals in the two games but were brought back down to earth by Wolverhampton Wanderers as we lost at Wembley.
The wins against Everton and Bournemouth lifted us above Manchester City as we chased Liverpool, and now we sit six points behind the Reds in the Premier League.
Alli claimed that Mauricio Pochettino didn’t need to say much since all the players were disappointed and said that it was possible they had taken Wolves for granted (h/t Metro):
“We had been in great form before that and maybe we got a little bit carried away with ourselves.
“They’re a fantastic team and maybe we just thought we would win the game (against Wolves), but you can’t do that if you want to win things and be a top, top team.”
Tottenham have come back in a big way with a win over Cardiff and then a 7-0 win over Tranmere in the FA Cup. Alli captained the side in the win over the League Two side, and we have a couple of cracking games coming up. Chelsea are our opponents in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final and we play Manchester United in the Premier League at the weekend.
Tottenham cannot drop the ball in the coming games as we look to close the gap on Liverpool. We should also target doing well in the cup competitions as we need to win a trophy under Mauricio Pochettino.
