Pressure on Pochettino as Spurs lose 3-0 at Brighton

After a lengthy delay for Lloris to be stretchered off, Brighton pushed on rather than trying to protect their lead and were rewarded just after the half hour mark. They've now won just two of their last 10 games, and those came against Southampton and Crystal Palace.

After a poor start to 2019/20 many are questioning Pochettino's future, but he insists he does not fear the sack.

Teenage striker Aaron Connolly scored twice on his first Premier League start as Brighton & Hove Albion humbled Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 on Saturday to ensure the visitors' nightmare week ended on the worst possible note.

"No I am not anxious [about being sacked], what worries me is life, not football", he said.

After today's win at Donny, Blues boss Kenny Jackett told The News: 'It seems quite a minor one, but when you are feeling your hamstring on the Saturday morning after pulling out of training, it was the right decision to leave him out.

The performances were there since the first game of the season. "We hope that the break will offer us a chance to change the dynamic and the energy". "I accept the criticism", he said.

"Through the website they are going to explain the situation properly".

Pochettino is no stranger of being linked elsewhere with Juventus, Manchester United and Real Madrid all reportedly keen on acquiring his services in the last 12 months.

Speculation has been rife over Pochettino's future at the club and the Brighton result is set to raise more questions.

"I've watched it since I was four or five maybe, watching Premier League years all the time", said Connolly. I feel sorry for our fans, I want to say thanks for the effort to come here, we know how they feel, we are disappointed too.

"I accept the opinions".

The Argentine brushed off the suggestion that he had taken the club as far as he could, saying it was a "moment to stay together". Of course pundits need to talk and have opinions.

Speaking in a press conference after the match the former Espanyol manager said, "Football is a game that sometimes you win, sometimes you lose".

"The most important thing that is clear is that we are all together and we are going to find a way to win again".
