‘Wake-up call’: Pochettino warns Spurs after Watford shock

Watford maintained their ideal start to the Premier League season as they came from behind to shock Tottenham at Vicarage Road.

A Doucoure own goal put Tottenham ahead and put them on the road towards another three points, but that only lasted around 15 minutes before talisman Troy Deeney was able to draw the club level once again.

Spurs remained in the ascendancy but as the game approached the final quarter, Watford began to build a head of steam and came agonisingly close to an equaliser when Alderweireld headed against his own bar from a Deeney cross.

"It's a chance for everyone to say "come on we need to compete". Twitter user and Spurs fan Tottenham Paul though feels the manager got it "all wrong" and needs to take more responsibility, with Ethan questioning the manager's substitution policy. I am very disappointed, very disappointed.

The surprising hosts have gotten off to a hot start on the season, conceding just two goals in three matches, just as the Spurs have done.

"It's a good moment for us, we have to enjoy, knowing that it is only the first four games". We want and expect to win every game and losing is not something we often do, luckily. You need to compete much, much better.

'We conceded two goals that if you want to be a contender you can not concede. You need to show more strength, be more aggressive in your defending.

"I think we have played better, but playing against Tottenham you have to do many things different". If you want to be a contender, today you should win and win easy.

"After the third game, because we beat Manchester United and the circumstances that we beat them in, we need to be more cautious". We showed that against Newcastle and Fulham and at Old Trafford. And with a fully fit squad, the Spaniard reflected upon a nice problem to have as his side looked to extend their winning league sequence to four matches: "It has been hard for me having to choose eighteen players and only eleven in the line-up". The reality is we need to analyse who is on the pitch. Very disappointed because if you want to be a contender, first I am the first person guilty of everything.
