Pochettino: Tottenham deserved more

Mauricio Pochettino felt his Spurs side deserved more after being held to a 1-1 draw with Brighton.

Tottenham took the lead early in the second half through Harry Kane but were immediately pegged back by Pascal Gross’ penalty.

Pochettino, though, thought the result was harsh on his troops.

“It was a difficult game,” he told Sky Sports. “The first half was even and the second half we started it really well.

“We scored and in the next section we conceded. In the second half we dominated, created chances but not enough to win the game. The draw is a little bit disappointing because the intention was to get all three.

“We were thinking of giving the team fresh legs because Saturday’s game against Manchester City was tough mentally and physically.

!We have a squad good enough to win games. Today was not because we rotated the team. Everyone is ready to play but Brighton was a very difficult opponent and we need to give credit to them.”
