Mauricio Pochettino: The first half was poor from both teams


Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino was not happy with his side's performance in the first half against Burnley.

Spurs could only manage a draw against Sean Dyche's side and will have to face Burnley again next week in their attempt to reach the fourth round of the FA Cup.

"The first half was poor from both teams, it was difficult to create a chance at either end," Pochettino said.

"In the second half we were better, we created chances and scored. We had control of the game.

"We gave Burnley the opportunity to come back into the game and this is our frustration.

"We were better at that moment and had control of the game but in football, you need to kill the game when you have the opportunity.

"That didn't happen tonight because we gave Burnley the opportunity to come back into the game.

"We need to be focused on our next game now, Palace, another difficult game. But we are still in the FA Cup, we will play another game at White Hart Lane and we'll fight to go into the next round."
