Cape Town - Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is adamant
that his players did not lose against Liverpool due to a shortage of belief.
Harry Kane gave Spurs the lead in the first minute, but the
visitors were on the back foot throughout and were eventually undone by goals
from Jordan Henderson and Mohamed Salah, as they lost 2-1 at Anfield.
Pochettino was happy with the effort of his side but
admitted they lost to the better team.
"I don't think it is the belief. We have the belief and
the confidence. We need to dominate the game more and play better with the
players we had on the pitch," He said.
"We tried in the last 10 or 15 minutes and had chances
but it was impossible.
"We were very competitive. I think we suffered in the
first half - they were better than us. I think we defended well, and the team
was very committed."
With no midweek League Cup matches for the London side,
Spurs will be back in Merseyside over the weekend against Everton at Goodison
Kick-off is at 18:30 on Sunday.
