Mauricio Pochettino wants his side to be a “little naughty” if they are interested in progressing ahead of our Carabao Cup clash against Chelsea.
The manager was speaking ahead of the clash and was referring to the infamous 2-2 draw against the Blues where nine of our players were booked.
Spurs lost the title that year to Leicester City but Pochettino looked back on that draw and claimed he enjoyed it (h/t Sky Sports):
“When you lose it’s impossible to enjoy the game.
“But I enjoyed the draw, when we lost the opportunity to be in the title race.
“That was a massive battle between Chelsea and us, we fought a lot, I enjoyed it. It’s true that I was disappointed, but it showed our character and how we feel.”
The Argentine added that he wanted the side to show this fighting mentality and believed that simply adding players would not make the side better.
“We are so nice and in that game we showed that we can be a little naughty.”
Tottenham were in a great position to lift the title then, but we are in a decent position this time too. We sit just six points behind the leaders, and could reach another cup final should we get past the Blues.
Chelsea are not in the best of form and are there for the taking. Tottenham defeated the Blues easily earlier in the campaign, and we could be set for another win on Tuesday.
Tottenham one of the best sides in the Premier League and seem have a bit of an edge in our game these days.
