Burnley – Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino, calling his team’s performance in the match Burnley did not deserve to produce victory. In addition, Pochettino also began pessimistic about the chances Spurs finish top four.
Spurs just brought home a number of Turf Moor on Sunday (04/05/2015). They had to settle for a 0-0 draw with host Burnley.
In the match, Spurs 60-40% ball possession. However, the opportunities they create less. They fired 12 shots and two of them on target, while creating 15 trial Burnley scored and four that led to the goal.
“We did not get the three points and that is why I was disappointed. I think Burnley our press and our performance was good, but not good enough to win,” said Pochettino told Sky Sports.
“I think Burnley is a very difficult team here and three weeks ago Manchester City lost here. This is a very difficult match,” he added.
“I think we created some chances, maybe it’s enough to score a goal. But, in the end I was disappointed with the results. In the end, our performance was good, but only to a point,” said Pochettino.
A draw is not profitable Spurs who are trying hard to penetrate the top four of the Premier League. The Lilywhites indeed climbed to sixth with 54 points from 31 matches, but they left behind seven points from Manchester City who are in the fourth position.
“It is difficult (to finish top four), but we have seven games left. We will try,” said Pochettino.
“It is true that it will not be easy. The match was very heavy and we must try to reach as many points in seven games in the future,” he said.
