Mauricio Pochettino pleased with Spurs’ second half improvement v Everton

first_imgMauricio Pochettino has admitted he was pleased with how Tottenham performed in the second half of their 1-1 draw against Everton, having been disappointed with his players in the opening 45 minutes.Ross Barkley scored early on for the hosts, before Spurs also lost goalkeeper Hugo Lloris to injury before half-time, and it wasn’t until after the break that the visitors looked like they might have taken something from the game.Summer signing Vincent Janssen was brought on to provide a new threat in the final third, and he came close to netting a debut goal, and the equaliser finally came when Erik Lamela headed past Maarten Stekelenburg.Pochettino has revealed he pulled no punches at half-time, but his team talk must have worked as his players put in a much improved showing after the break.When asked what he told his team at half-time, Pochettino said: “I was tough with them. I think that a lot of things happened and we conceded the goal very early when we were not settled in the game. It’s difficult to manage in the way we play; we made a lot of mistakes in our possession.“It’s hard to play with possession and create chances, but this is our game and our philosophy.“But I think the second half was much better, it was good.“Janssen gave a lot of energy to the team and is a different option to play, and I was very happy with the second half.”last_img read more
