we need to compete much better - Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham coach Mauricio Pochettino wasn't happy with some of his players after they lost to Watford on Sunday.

Watford came from behind to score two goals and won the game by 2-1 and Pochettino was not happy with the result.

Though some of his players were at their best form, Pochettino still believes they lack the necessary aggression and they didn't respect their opponent which actually cost them the game.

'It's a very good wake-up call for everyone,' Pochettino said

'The reality is that if you want to be a contender you need to win. And win easy. Beacuse everything was ready for us to win the game.'

'We need to show more respect to this competition. To compete and to win is not easy. The Premier League is so, so tough.'

'You need to compete much, much better. We need to go there like a lion and try to score in every single action. OK, we play football, but we need to be more aggressive.'

'If you want to win you need to show that character. You need to defend well. If you do not play so well you need to win this type of game if you want to be a contender at the end.'

Sunday defeat ends Tottenham unbeaten run this season after four games. Their next game will be against Liverpool after the international break.
