Pochettino wants Spurs to remain positive

Tottenham Hotspur’s Champions League campaign did not exactly get off to the best start.

The North London team made a bright start by going two goals up inside the first 35 minutes but their rivals on the night, Olympiakos pulled two back by the end of the match and Spurs had no answer for that.

“My thoughts are that we’re optimistic, one point at the end,” Pochettino told Spurs official website after their disappointing draw.

“We didn’t start well but we scored the penalty and the second goal from Lucas, but it wasn’t a great end to the first half.

“In the second half we improved but conceded another soft goal. We need to focus on being more aggressive like we were against Palace. In the moment we dropped, our quality dropped too and we conceded too many chances.

“It’s disappointing because we are not talking about quality, we are talking about intensity, will and aggression.

“We need to be optimistic and positive. It’s only the beginning, a point here and now we need to be ready for Saturday when we play Leicester and that’s going to be another tough game.”
