Pochettino defends Spurs after Swansea stalemate

Renato Sanches

Tottenham could not find a way past Swansea as Paul Clement's side held out for a 0-0 draw at Wembley. This isn't a player arriving off the back of a solitary good season in the lower leagues - this is an influential European Championship victor at the age of just 18.

Asked about Neville's comments, Pochettino said Kane, the Premier League's golden boot victor for the past two seasons, was already in the "great" bracket, even if he has so far failed to win any silverware with Tottenham.

Son flashed a shot at Lukasz Fabianski's near post early on, but the goalkeeper tipped it wide, just after the Pole had also done well to scramble away a dipping Kane free-kick from 30 yards.

The intense frustration for Tottenham is that, however anybody dresses it up, this was such a step backwards.

Spurs emerged with renewed vigour after the interval and a more aggressive approach. What is not clear is why Mike Dean justify in front of our players that it was handball but it was not handball. On both occasions, he might argue Olsson was unable to move out of the way.

The England forward's second was a reduced coating inside the much message on the hour mark to give his side the side they needed as they overcame the risk of their harmful and ruthless opponent.

It wasn't Spurs' night, no more so when Kane somehow rattled the crossbar from six-yards out after Moussa Sissoko's cut-back.

Pochettino threw on former Swansea forward Fernando Llorente in search of a victor, but if anything the Swans' comfort level increased in the closing stages as it even threatened to snatch victory.

Even dismissing the curse or the vagaries of fortune, there is still room to criticize Spurs' performance here. They dominated every area of the pitch for the full 90 minutes, outshooting their visitors by almost a factor of four while registering eight shots on Lukasz Fabianski's goal. Although Mauricio Pochettino's men huffed and puffed in the first half, they struggled to get into threatening positions and were largely limited to speculative efforts from distance.

"When you take a decision as a referee you stay calm and say it was handball. You can not justify this decision".

Mauricio: "We are disappointed to drop two points". This has earned him 32 points on Fantasy Football, more than any other player from the opening four games of the season. We had to defend a lot.

I thought we defended very well.

"After the long term like him, I think it is hard for him because players love to play football and be fit and healthy".

Tottenham won 17 of their 19 Premier League games at White Hart Lane last season but have yet to take maximum points in three matches at their new Wembley home.

Tottenham's next league game at Wembley is three weeks away, with Bournemouth the visitors on October 10. "He was at the end of his career and I was at the start of mine".

Swansea endured their lowest-ever possession figure in the Premier League (25%).
