Pochettino no complaints after Spurs fail to win again
Tottenham Hotspur’s winless run in the Premier League stretched to five games as George Baldock’s equaliser earned an impressive Sheffield United side a 1-1 draw yesterday.
The hosts were fortunate to go ahead in the 58th minute through Son Heung-min’s goal and again when David McGoldrick’s apparent equaliser soon afterwards was ruled out by VAR.
Son’s goal was Spurs’ first attempt on target but it failed to spark Mauricio Pochettino’s side into life.
Chris Wilder’s United kept plugging away and were duly rewarded when Baldock’s miscued low cross sneaked in at the back post, the goal allowed to stand after another VAR check.
Spurs manager Pochettino said: “It was an even game, difficult for us – they are a very good, organised team, it was difficult to play in the first half, second half we were better. Overall, it’s a fair result.”
Goals from Tom Davies and Richarlison gave Everton their first away win of the season at Southampton and eased the pressure on manager Marco Silva.
The visitors took the lead in the fourth minute when the unmarked Davies headed in a corner kick for his first goal since May 2018 – which also came against the Saints.
With 15 minutes to go, Djibril Sidibe sent in a pin-point cross to the far post where Richarlison made it 2-1 with a left-footed first-time finish.
Silva said: “We deserved the three points. We were the best team on the pitch. The first half was really good but we should kill the game.”
Goals from DeAndre Yedlin and Ciaran Clarke helped Newcastle United recover from a goal down to beat Bournemouth 2-1 at St James’s Park.
Harry Wilson put the visitors ahead with a fine finish after a well worked corner 14 minutes in.
Newcastle full-back Yedlin headed home an equaliser in the 42nd minute, while Clarke scuffed home a winner just after the break.
Magpies manager Steve Bruce said: “The team showed a great spirit after the first twenty minutes when Bournemouth caused us a lot of problems. But after that, we had to dig in and we created enough chances to win to a much healthier margin. The longer the game went on, we just needed to take more chances.”
