Pochettino Unconcerned By Rivals’ Results

Pochettino Unconcerned By Rivals’ Results

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has brushed off the suggestion he will be rooting for Man City in Thursday’s big clash with Liverpool.

Spurs bounced back from Saturday’s shock home defeat to Wolves with a 3-0 win that saw Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min score inside the opening 26 minutes.

The victory took Spurs back above City into second place and within six points of leaders Liverpool.

City welcome Liverpool to the Etihad Stadium on Thursday, and a win for Pep Guardiola’s side would work in Tottenham’s favour by tightening up matters at the top.

But Pochettino said: “In this country all the people are going to watch the game. “But I will be in a neutral position trying to enjoy the game. “I don’t care about the result, I just want to enjoy the spectacle and the game.”

The defeat to Wolves aside, Tottenham performed well during the busy festive period, winning three out of four matches to remain firmly in the title hunt.

The way the fixtures worked out meant Spurs had the least amount of time between their four matches compared to the majority of other Premier League sides and Pochettino was delighted with the way his team had performed during the tricky run.

“Us and Everton, we were the two teams who suffered the most difficult fixtures in that period,” Pochettino said after Tottenham’s fourth game in 10 days. “So, of course, I congratulate the players because the effort was fantastic.”
