Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has come to the defense of his players saying they “are not machines” after they suffered ashocking defeat to Wolves on Saturday.
Spurs raced into the lead through Harry Kane’s spectacular 25-yard strike in the first 45 minutes but Wolves turned things in the second half scoring three times in the final 18 minutes to dent Pochetino’s men title aspirations.
The loss means Tottenham are now nine points behind unbeaten Liverpool who trashed Arsenal 5-1.
“We have had a very good run in the last few weeks and to keep that level is difficult,” said Pochettino, whose side won 6-2 and 5-0 against Everton and Bournemouth respectively in their last two games.
“We tried to play a little more in the second half, but we were too direct and I think we started to pay for the effort in the other games.
“We are not machines. We need to understand that we cannot get ourselves in this situation.”
Willy Boly, Raul Jimenez and Helder Costa all scored Wolves three goals to secured the win over Spurs who are still depending on the result of Manchester City who visit Southampton on Sunday.
