Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino concedes Spurs weren’t good enough against Burnley

With Tottenham having been held to a goalless draw against Burnley, which saw the Clarets boasting the better chances, manager Mauricio Pochettino wasn’t pleased with side’s performances, and was left to admit that they didn’t do enough to come away with all three points, reports BBC Sport.

Tottenham struggled to create many chances, with striker Harry Kane not getting adequate support throughout the game. He had a quiet afternoon, but Spurs’ creative attacking-midfield trio let the side down considerably, and were looking lethargic.

Burnley could have taken the lead early in the first-half, but striker Danny Ings failed to beat Vorm in the Tottenham goal. Spurs didn’t respond from nearly going behind, and were lacklustre for the entirety of the opening 45 minutes.

They hardly tested the opposition goalkeeper, and could hardly argue coming away with a point. Tottenham could feel somewhat fortunate they got anything at Turf Moor, as their performance deserved a lot less.

After the final whistle, manager Mauricio Pochettino gave his honest thoughts, admitting Spurs weren’t good enough to win the game. The result sees their chances of a Champions League place all but over, and the Tottenham boss felt his side lacked patience.

“If you want to play in big things you need to win games. But Burnley are a very tough team and made it difficult. We had to fight and created some chances but not enough to win the game. It’s true that we maybe lacked patience to create some more chances but that can happen sometimes. You always need to win at a club like Tottenham. We know it will be difficult (to reach the top four) but we will try,” he said.
