Pochettino claims Real links make him more attractive to his players

Erik Lamela, Lucas Moura and Harry Kane fired the visitors into a 3-0 lead at Molineux only for Wolves to nearly snatch a point.

Pochettino celebrated victory amid a backdrop of injury concerns, especially in midfield, after Mousa Dembele limped off after just six minutes with his ankle heavily strapped.

The 22-year-old was left out of Tottenham's squad that registered a 3-2 win over Wolves at Molineux on Saturday as Mauricio Pochettino opted to manage his squad carefully ahead of a Champions League meeting with PSV Eindhoven this week.

'I think we're strong enough to sort out all the problems and arrive at what the club and fans deserve.

Juan Foyth gave away two penalties in his Premier League debut for Tottenham, which Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez both cooly converted to give the Londoners a tense final ten minutes.

"We don't know but we are a little bit anxious", said Pochettino. You need to play for something that is bigger than a person.

The lack of a midfield presence resulted in a thrillingly open, back-and-forth game with each side having - but failing with - a number of chances in the game's opening 25 minutes.

"We cannot control everything in the game but we can do better with the ball".

On an evening when the depth of his squad seemed at risk of being exposed with an injury to Mousa Dembele and a shaky Premier League debut by Juan Foyth, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino saw his side nearly contrive to throw away a 3-0 lead. Of course the manager has his expectations and so do the staff and I think they try to give us the main tools and then it is about our emotions, our feelings.

'We've played on it before and we know what it's like but it's the same pitch for both sides, ' he said. Patricio made a diving save to deny Harry Kane's first effort from Lamela's cross, but the rebound fell to Kane who hammered it home from a far tighter angle for 3-0.

They returned to the top four, at Arsenal's expense, while Wolves slipped to a third straight defeat.

7 - Pochettino faced a hard situation after losing Dembele right at the start, having to change his tactics and also introduce players who were meant to be resting at the end of a hectic week.

"Kieran needs to improve in the defensive situation because in the last few games you have seen that we conceded a few actions".
