No fes­tive spirit left for Po­chet­tino

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

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.
