Ian Wright makes different claim about Tottenham Hotspur

Ian Wright says Tottenham Hotspur are different under Mauricio Pochettino

Ian Wright believes Tottenham Hotspur have changed their mentality under Mauricio Pochettino.

The Lilywhites have been derided in some quarters after Tottenham squandered a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge earlier this month and hand the Premier League crown to Leicester City.

The north London side extended their winless run to two games at the weekend after a 2-1 defeat by Southampton at White Hart Lane following Steven Davis’s brace.

However, former Arsenal striker Wright believes Tottenham’s yellow cards during the London derby at Stamford Bridge shows that the current Spurs players have more fight than previous sides.

“I think Spurs and the fight they showed against Chelsea proved how disappointed they are with finishing second,” Wright told Sun Goals app.

“They knew they had a chance. This is a different type of Spurs. They’ve got some fight in them.”

Tottenham are in second place in the Premier League table and 10 points behind newly-crowned champions Leicester City.

Spurs are looking to finish above north London rivals for the first time in Premier League history.
