Although Pochettino felt Liverpool were fortunate to be awarded a penalty early in the second half, the Argentine is hoping his side will learn some key lessons from the White Hart Lane loss.

“Today was a very tough day for us,” Pochettino told Sky Sports.

“I think the key to our defeat was the start of the second half when there was a soft penalty.

“We played OK but were unlucky in the key moments.

“It was a very soft penalty but we need to improve. We need to build our confidence and build our future.

“We have a lot of games ahead. Sometimes you improve from your victories but you need to improve too from your defeats.”
