Mauricio Pochettino insists he doesn’t feel under pressure at Tottenham Hotspur after a last-gasp 2-1 win at Aston Villa on Sunday.

The Spurs manager looked to be heading towards his fifth Premier League defeat of the season after Andreas Weimann edged Villa into a 16th-minute lead at Villa Park.

I don’t feel the pressure and I understand the job

However, Nacer Chadli levelled with six minutes remaining after Christian Benteke was sent off, before Spurs substitute Harry Kane scored a win on the stroke of full-time.

And Tottenham manager Pochettino is adamant that the north London side are in a good position after climbing up to eighth in the Premier League table.

“I am happy and always smile, football is a game – it’s a business too – but all my life is about football,” Pochettino said.

“You need to work hard and when you are in a tough moment you have to be calm and strong.

“I don’t feel the pressure and I understand the job. We need to look forward. We are in a good position.”

Pochettino’s side make the trip Asteras Tripolis in the Europa League on Thursday night.
