Mauricio Pochettino has suggested that the White Hart Lane pitch is not suited to his Tottenham side’s style of play.

Spurs slumped to a 2-1 defeat by Newcastle United in the Premier League on Sunday as they lost their third home game of the season.

And Pochettino feels that his side are not being helped by the dimensions of their home ground’s playing surface.

“Our style means we need a bigger place to play because we play a positional game and it’s true that White Hart Lane is a little bit tight,” Pochettino is quoted as saying by ITV Sport.

“It’s better for the opponent. For example, on Sunday Newcastle play deep, same with West Brom and Liverpool, and it was difficult for us.

“We need time to adapt in our new set up and understand better our position on the pitch.”
