It left Mauricio Pochettino in a bitter mood that there was not a single person outside the fan-base of Tottenham wanting them to take the Premiership trophy and everybody was just for Leicester to complete a fairy-tale.
Pochettino believes the top side is always the one people look to defeat, but, for a change, it’s the no. 2 side which was on the target the previous season. Nobody was after the leaders and that was bizarre.
Tottenham chased Leicester to a very long distance and it’s only in the game before their penultimate game, when they had a draw, the title technically became impossible to clinch for them.
They were probably not tight enough at crucial times, but, according to Pochettino, he and his boys had loads to learn from it and they would be back only in a stronger capacity in this year’s summer.
