Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino believes his side would have beaten Hull without the man advantage

After Tottenham came from behind to win against 10-man Hull City this weekend, manager Mauricio Pochettino felt his side were in the ascendancy regardless of the man advantage, reports Sky Sports.

“I think it did not have a big impact. In the second half our attacking game was better than Hull’s. I’m sure in the end it would have been the same result. Hull played very well in the first half but we tried to change something at half-time and I’m happy because after we showed character and good mentality.”

“In the second half we created a lot of chances. The team showed a better mentality and attitude. I think the most important thing today is three points. It gives us confidence and I’m sure in the next few weeks we need to improve but the most important thing today is the three points.”

Tottenham found themselves 1-0 early on against Hull City, courtesy of a Jake Livermore pile drivers from the edge of the area, but the game changed when Gaston Ramirez was sent off for an off-the-back altercation with Tottenham’s Jan Vertonghen. Spurs took advantage and fought back with playmaker Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane getting on the score sheet to continue their decent away record in the Premier League.
