Tottenham are in a bad period, says Pochettino

London: Mauricio Pochettino admits Tottenham have run into a “bad period” after they suffered a surprise 1-0 defeat to Gent in the Europa League last 32.

Spurs’ disappointing night in Belgium was also compounded by Harry Kane sustaining a knock to his knee.

Jeremy Perbet’s second-half winner secured Gent a 1-0 victory at the Ghelamco Arena and leaves Tottenham with work to do in next week’s second leg at Wembley if they want to progress.

The loss also continues a worrying dip in form for Pochettino’s men, who have won only two of their last six matches after winning their previous seven in a row. They have scored only once in their last four. “That is the reality. It sometimes happens,” Pochettino said. “Good and bad things happen. We’ve started now a bad period. I hope, on Sunday, we break that negative run.”

Pochettino added: “It’s not about confidence. We were wrong with our judgement if we think, because of Liverpool, it’s only about confidence.”
