The progress of Tottenham’s new stadium construction is being reviewed on a daily basis

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino was furious with his defenders after Sunday's 2-1 loss to Watford.

Watford came from behind with two set-piece goals to beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 at Vicarage Road on Sunday (Sept 2), ending the visitors' 100 per cent record and maintaining their own flawless start to the Premier League season.

For Tottenham it was a rapid fall from grace after their 3-0 win at Manchester United on Monday and the defeat left them in fifth place with nine points. "We have good players to play football so at the moment we are enjoying games but we see a strong team when we are losing games".

The game will still be broadcast on Sky Sports.

"I think it is clear from the analysis".

Tottenham Hotspur's Victor Wanyama was on the bench against Watford. 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. This might be a punch on the nose, maybe a wake-up call for them to go again. "If it's the biggest game of the season or one of the less-fancied teams you do what you have to do to get back on track".

"After the third game, because we beat Manchester United and the circumstances that we beat them in, we need to be more cautious. You need to compete much better", he said.

"They are so hard to find and are the difference between very good players and the ones who can drag the lesser lights through difficult times".

One man who struggled the most was Moussa Dembele.

Watford's refusal to accept defeat against the north London club was indicative of the spirit which has defined Watford's flying start to the season.

"Maybe you cannot play so well but you need to win this type of game if you want to be a contender at the end".

Spurs were supposed to struggle as they made no signings in the summer as well as having the majority of senior players playing in the latter stages of the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Yet with Dembele's exit seemingly on the cards, Wanywama has around four months to prove to Pochettino that he can still be a star in the Tottenham midfield, and show that Spurs wouldn't need to splash out to replace the Belgian when the January transfer window opens. That's when the leaders in the group have to lead.

"It is so painful to concede two goals like this", Pochettino said.
