Tottenham Hotspur: Fans slam Mauricio Pochettino following defeat to Newcastle United

Tottenham Hotspur: Fans slam Mauricio Pochettino following defeat to Newcastle United

Tottenham Hotspur were on the surprising end of a 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United on Sunday and fans took to Twitter to fume over the decisions Mauricio Pochettino made.

Spurs saw some rather poor defending contribute to their loss as Joelinton managed to create some space for himself as he brought down the ball from Christian Atsu’s chipped pass, before firing beyond a helpless Hugo Lloris in the net (Evening Standard).

The hosts had a number of chances to get back into the game, though no one was able to really challenge Martin Dubravka in between the sticks. In the end, they finished the game with just two shots on target (via BBC Sport).

The defeat means the north London outfit sit in seventh and comes at, arguably, one of the worst times for Spurs as they prepare to travel to the Emirates Stadium and face Arsenal next weekend.

Fans took to Twitter to slam the team’s performance on the day, with many of them taking to the social media outlet to criticise Pochettino.

Some of the Tottenham faithful felt the Argentine was too stubborn with his decisions, whilst others were far from pleased with his tactics.

Here are just some of their reactions…
