Spurs Boss: We Were Better Than Man Utd

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that he believes his side were better than Manchester United in the second half of their game on Sunday.

However, he also believes that while his side were better in the second period, a 0-0 draw was a fair result in the grand scheme of the game in the Premier League.

Man Utd bossed proceedings in the first half, creating chance after chance, but they were repeatedly denied by French international shot stopping supremo Hugo Lloris.

Spurs then came out of the dressing room recharged after the half time break, and provided the better attacking threat.

As a result, they could have won the game, and were arguably unlucky not to do so.

However, Pochettino believes that a draw was a fair result at the end of the 90 minutes.

Even so, the Argentine manager praised his side’s second half display, and the performance in general.

He said: “The second-half was very good and we played better than United but at the end, after 90 minutes, I think the result was fair.

“The most important thing is the feeling we got from the performance. The point is good but I think it’s better to get that feeling from today because the team had a very good performance.

“Our fitness level was very good and that showed we’re in a good moment.

“The idea was to believe in our skill and get the three points but we showed that we were solid. We made a big effort and for that, congratulations to the players.

“We need to keep this feeling and this momentum because we have a lot of games ahead and the next game is tough.”
