Pochettino happy to stay undefeated

Mauricio Pochettino was pleased as he saw his Tottenham side leave the Emirates Stadium with a point after getting a 1-1 draw against Arsenal on Sunday.

Harry Kane scored in his comeback to earn Spurs a point. Arsenal took the lead shortly before halftime after an own goal by Kevin Wimmer. The centre back ended up putting a cross by Mesut Ozil past his own goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. Kane tied things up early in the second half from the penalty spot after Laurent Koscielny had brought down Mousa Dembele inside the penalty area. Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino was pleased to have gotten a point and to stay undefeated.

“All the teams have good or bad moments in the season. If you suffer bad moments and are unbeaten you can only smile. Because I am happy,” Pochettino said.

“There are many small problems. Now we have two weeks to recover all the players. When you compete in the Champions League and the Premier League, for me they are both the toughest competitions in the world and we need all the squad fit.

“We have a short squad and we suffered some issues. We have had to play with the same players and we cannot rotate the way we’d like to rotate the players to give freshness and arrive in better conditions.

“But I’m very happy with how we have finished now. It feels fantastic.”

Tottenham sits in fifth place in the Premier League table after picking up five wins an six draws in 11 matches.
