Pochettino misses another chance to end Tottenham trophy drought

Pochettino misses another chance to end Tottenham trophy drought

Tottenham have started the Premier League campaign off in indifferent form with two wins, two draws and two defeats.

Imagine getting results right from the Argentinian fourth tier, the English Conference, Austrian Bundesliga, English non league and on a Scottish reserve team, only to lose your bet because Spurs couldn't beat a League Two side.

Tottenham suffered humiliation on Tuesday afternoon as they were dumped out of the League Cup by Colchester United.

Pochettino remains without recent acquisitions Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon due to respective hip and hamstring injuries.

The Argentine said: "When you have an unsettled squad always it's hard and you lose time and then you need time to recover the time you lose".

"That's where we are". Speaking after the game the Tottenham manager admitted, 'When you have an unsettled squad you always need time to recover the time you lose.' With a number of potential player out-goings in January, most significantly Christian Eriksen, the message was about regrouping the squad: 'We need this mental connection, this energy to be all together, not to have different agendas in the squad.

Pochettino is not looking at a quick fix and is already eyeing up the next two transfer windows to refresh a group that appears to have grown stale.

'We have been through periods like this before, with this group together, and we know what we need to do to get back on track, ' said the 25-year-old England worldwide.

"Then the next transfer window, again".

"Damage has happened that we need to fix". To keep a successful period in football you need to be different every single season and act differently and find a different solution.

Spurs will hope to get back to winning ways when they face Southampton in the Premier League this weekend.

"I am happy. We have the squad that we have and now we need to perform with the squad that we have".
