Tottenham’s away-day woes continued at Leicester City and the club’s manager has spotted a worrying trend in his side’s performances
Mauricio Pochettino warned Tottenham they must quickly address their poor starts to matches after falling to a 2-1 loss at Leicester City on Tuesday.
Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez scored stunners to leave the Foxes two goals to the good by half-time and, despite Harry Kane scoring as part of a late onslaught from the visitors, Spurs fell to a first Premier League defeat at the King Power Stadium.
Tottenham have now lost three consecutive league games for the first time since March 2014 and boss Pochettino has noticed a worrying trend in matches.
“We did not play in the way we normally play. The first half was a poor performance and it was difficult after that to get back into the game,” he told BBC Sport.
“We feel very disappointed in our performance. We started the game not in the right way and we conceded the opportunity to them to score.
“At 2-0 down it is difficult. We need to improve the way we start. It happened against West Brom and Borussia Dortmund.”
