Mauricio Pochettino: Our performance was poor


Tottenham Hotspur head coach Mauricio Pochettino admits his side's performance against West Ham United was not good enough.

Spurs had a golden opportunity to move closer to the top four but needed a late Harry Kane goal to rescue a point at White Hart Lane.

"I think we started very well and created chances but after they scored and it was difficult for us, a tough moment," Pochettino said.

"Our performance was poor and we couldn't find the way to play in our style.

"In the second half it was unlucky because they scored, maybe offside, but it was difficult for us.

"But we finished the game well again.

"We pushed in the last 20 minutes. We improved our performance, showed character and never gave up. We need to congratulate our players for that.

"Maybe it wasn't the best game but on days like today it's important to show that character.

"We need to be happy about that. We are stronger and sometimes it's difficult to play every game with the same intensity and same quality."
