Mauricio Pochettino remained calm after Tottenham's loss to League Two side Colchester United in the EFL Cup.
"I am so relaxed, I become more relaxed in these 'difficult' or 'tough' moments. Then [you only need] one result. We deserved to win the game against Leicester. Three points more and we are third in the table. We are talking about a fantastic season and a fantastic performance. [People would say], 'Wow – what quality players and an amazing coaching staff and manager, we are performing in the best way and winning games'. The line is so thin between one or another and sometimes in football it happens that you don't have the luck you deserve," said Pochettino.
Pochettino did admit that there was still damage from transfer speculation surrounding the club over the summer, with a move for Christian Eriksen failing to pan out.
"Of course, there are some collateral consequences and damage we need to fix. We are in a moment when we are fixing problems to try to be better and start to get the results that we expect. To win the games."
