Pochettino warns against Spurs complacency after Manchester United win

Mauricio Pochettino has warned his players against complacency following their 3-0 victory over Manchester United last Monday.

Spurs put in an impressive second-half performance against Manchester United, with Harry Kane’s opener and Lucas Moura’s brace condemning United to their second defeat on the bounce.

The result also meant that Spurs maintained their 100% record to keep pace with the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea at the top of the Premier League.

However, with the North London club preparing to face Watford this weekend, Pochettino is keen to remind his players that any complacency could lead to a ‘crash’:

“We’re going to play on Sunday against a very good team – a team that’s going to fight and is in a very good moment,” the Argentine told his press conference.

“After three games they’re over the moon. Of course, if we’re not ready and we believe because we beat Manchester United 3-0 that all is fantastic, I think we are going to crash.

“It’s easy to talk about perception. When you’ve beaten Manchester United 3-0 in Old Trafford, a historic victory, it’s easy to say our performance was fantastic and they were not so good.

“But when you watch again the game I think the line was very thin, to be in the left or right, in the positive or negative.”
