Mauricio Pochettino demands aggressive approach for Spurs against Liverpool

Mauricio Pochettino demands aggressive approach for Spurs against Liverpool

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has demanded an improved attitude from his players for Saturday's Wembley clash with Liverpool after accusing them of treating their recent visit to Watford like a walk in the park.

The Spurs manager said that he felt "guilty" himself for not being able to stop his team's falling away in the 2-1 defeat at Vicarage Road before the global break, having sensed that something was not right about his players, post-Old Trafford.

Spurs were flying to open the Premier League season, claiming three straight wins - including a 3-0 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford.

"If we do it the same way, I will be on the phone to say, 'Houston, we have a problem, ' " Pochettino said.

"If you watch the Watford game again, you see we played so slow, so sloppy, from the beginning". To win games, we need to be focused for 95 minutes.

"After we win at Old Trafford, we lost at Watford and we were bad", Pochettino said.

"When a striker does not fill the net and does not score goals, always you need to find some reason why but I think he is fit", Pochettino said. "If you are disrespectful, you pay", he said.

"That is what is so important in football". It does not mean we are going to kill someone.

"You need to deserve to win and you need to perform in the way that you believe you can beat your opponents".

However, they were stunned by Watford in their last game before the worldwide break, a result Pochettino said he saw coming.

Tottenham face their biggest challenge of the season so far when they go up against Liverpool at Wembley in the Premier League on Saturday.

"And of course, I am guilty because I saw that, but I can not change that situation". Liverpool then spent massively in the close season transfer window while Spurs did not make one signing.

"We know Harry Kane very well and have worked with him for more than four years and we know it's not a situation that worries us".
