Mauricio Pochettino wants his squad to be more aggressive

Tottenham Hotspur is the only team in the Premier League that has not sustained any loss out of their 11 opening league matches that have been played so far in the season of 2016-17.


Every other club in the top tier English League has at least sustained at least 1 defeat but Mauricio Pochettino and his team is at this point in time undefeated.

Not having lost a single league match from 11 games is something impressive but Mauricio Pochettino wants his squad to score more goals and try to give that final push that has been needed in many of their previous results which have ended in draws.

The Argentine head coach of Tottenham Hotspur, Mauricio Pochettino believes that in many of the matches of his squad, his players could’ve created more goal-scoring chances and edged out a triumph in their games that have finished in draws and according to Pochettino, it could’ve ended on victories.

"We need to be determined and aggressive in the last third. It's true that the last few weeks after the international break it was difficult for us to score. We are creating the same chances as before but our percentage was poor in front of goal. We are working on that. We need to be more clinical in our offensive situation’’

"We are watching a lot of clips and videos, but it's more about mentality, to be aggressive in your energy because the players know how to shoot. It's mentality more than work. Mauricio Pochettino said.

During the 2015-16 season of the Premier League Mauricio Pochettino was able to guide Tottenham Hotspur to the 3rd spot and the Argentine coach is now aiming to finish at a higher position and this is why Pochettino is not satisfied with all of the recent draws that his squad has been securing and told them to give it their all in search for a goal and collect more points from each match instead of settling with draws.
