Mauricio Pochettino not feeling pressure, happy with striking options


Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino admits his side has to improve ahead of the away game against Aston Villa.

Spurs reached the Quarter Finals of the League Cup after the mid-week home win against Brighton & Hove Albion but have struggled to make an impact in the Premier League.

"I don't feel the pressure," Pochettino said.

"I'm not happy about the results. We need to improve.

"I am disappointed but the results don't reflect the performances. (We are not where we deserve but we still believe in our job and our way. We need to get three points on Sunday.

"Always we manage, share the minutes [between the strikers]."

Only six Premier League teams scored less than Spurs so far this season but the Argentinean insists that he is happy with his striking options.

"We are happy with all our strikers, said Pochettino.

"[Emmanuel] Adebayor scored against Newcastle, [Roberto] Soldado was very, very good the last game. Harry [Kane] the same.

"We need to score more, it's true. But we are improving and I hope our strikers score more goals."
