Pochettino happy with point

Tottenham drew their third Champions League game of this season, 0-0, with Bayer Leverkusen.

Despite stating before the game that this was a ‘must win fixture’ for Spurs, Mauricio Pochettino said he is happy with a point from tonight’s game.

The Argentine manager stated that his side played well in the first half but did admit that Leverkusen were on top for much of the second half tonight.

Pochettino said that Leverkusen created more chances than his side after the break and that Spurs lost control of the ball too.

However, he did stated that Tottenham’s life in the Champions League is still in their hands at this stage.
