Pochettino blames disappointment of defeat for heated referee exchange

Pochettino blames disappointment of defeat for heated referee exchange

"I needed to calm down, I wanted to find someone to blame, because we can not think now of being a real contender".

There was controversy about Wood's goal as it came from a corner which Tottenham felt shouldn't have been given.

It was a bitter blow for third placed Tottenham, who will be eight points off top spot if second placed Liverpool, now level on points with City, win at Manchester United on Sunday.

Pochettino's Spanish assistant Jesus Perez jabbed his finger towards the face of Dean while the Argentinian was eventually led away by Burnley defender Phil Bardsley. "Age is a number, and it's really how you feel and how capable you are of doing the job". It's the first time in 10 years.

Goals from Burnley forwards Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes at Turf Moor left Spurs' hopes of piling the pressure on the top two, Manchester City and Liverpool, in tatters and Tottenham's normally serene boss Mauricio Pochettino raging.

Dean angered Pochettino after incorrectly awarding a corner to Burnley, which led to Burnley taking the lead, in addition to Phil Bardsley avoiding a red card for a unsafe challenge on Danny Rose. "We need to see inside ourselves", added the Spurs boss who said he might apologise to the referee.

Ferry also noted specifically that "league rules made it clear" that Davis has to play as long as he is in New Orleans. Anthony Davis will be part of the New Orleans Pelicans line-up in IN on Friday, head coach Alvin Gentry has confirmed.

Speaking after the game, Pochettino admitted that he had made a mistake, and intimated that he would be ready to accept whatever punishment the FA may deem necessary. Something stupid happens and you react.

Pochettino vented his frustration at referee Mike Dean in a furious confrontation at the end of the game but he said that the blame for the loss lay squarely at his team.

They have played 27 games this season in the Premier League, losing seven games and remain the only side without a draw this season.

At the bottom of the table, Huddersfield and Fulham are nearly certain to be relegated, so there are essentially ten clubs trying to avoid 18th-place (the last relegation spot). King had a chance to win it for Bournemouth with another penalty, but fired his effort against the post.

Crystal Palace won 4-1 at Leicester on a memorable day for Roy Hodgson, who became the Premier League's oldest ever manager at 71 years and 199 days.
