While players on the field have to take responsibility for the performance they perform today, Pochettino has also made some big mistakes in the assessment.
I think Spurs would have created much more chances if Christian Eriksen had been on the pitch from the start against Newcastle.
The Great Dane made a difference when she came back into play this week, but why was not he part of the first XI?
Spurs barely scored a goal throughout the game and the winger The field had no room to run behind it.
It always looked like you needed a sharp cross or a special pass to unlock a stubborn Newcastle defense, but Eriksen was only given half an hour to turn the game on his head.
I do not just believe that he should have started, but also Jan Vertonghen. In my opinion, Spurs would not have conceded that goal in Newcastle if Jan had been on the court over Sanchez. The young center-back was drafted when Vertonghen did not, and the Belgian rarely makes a mistake.
A weakened Pochettino XI and submarines that arrived too late from the Argentines cost today, I believe, Spurs.
