No festive spirit left for Pochettino
PREMIER LEAGUE: Mauricio Pochettino blamed Tottenham’s Christmas fixture schedule for their collapse against Wolves.
Harry Kane had celebrated his new year MBE in style with a stunning goal in the first half that put Spurs ahead.
But goals from Willy Boly, Raul Jimenez and Helder Costa condemned them to a 3-1 defeat.
It was Tottenham’s third match in seven days over Christmas, and it showed in the second half as Wolves knocked the stuffing out of them.
“We conceded the first goal and the last 20 minutes was tough for the team to find energy, to be competitive, or to try to win the game,” said Spurs manager Pochettino.
