Mauricio Pochettino rues "poor" Tottenham performance after EPL loss to Leicester City

Leicester City v Tottenham Hotspur

The team slipped to seventh place, behind Burnley, after the midweek round of Premier League games after a 2-1 loss at Leicester City.

The book, entitled Brave New World, is a searingly honest account that acts both as a biography of Pochettino's life and a reflection on their last season.

The usual telepathy between Tottenham's star attacking trident was malfunctioning while Vardy and Mahrez relived the glory days of two seasons ago.

Pochettino is not pondering any defensive shake-up with Alderweireld sidelined until the New Year, although plans to make changes to his team for next week's final Champions League group fixture against Apoel Nicosia, describing the tie as a "great opportunity to rest players that need to rest and to help them for the next period to be fresh". We take a look at each individual performance on what was a night to remember for Leicester City.

'My relationship is so strong and to find excuse with the book is not funny.

Despite shining in his two Champions League appearances, the England international has yet to truly hit the heights of the last two seasons in the Premier League so far this term. There is nothing to hide.

Spurs' improvement under Pochettino has made them a target for their opponents and Pochettino acknowledged on Tuesday that Leicester had simply been more aggressive at the King Power Stadium.

His boss Claude Puel, who took over late last month, believes that the performance against Spurs is a promising sign for the future.

There is a school of thought among avid Spurs observers that Pochettino's rotation of his full-backs is out of sync.

Serge Aurier, another visiting wide player who had put in plenty of effort with scant reward, would then swing in a dangerous cross for substitute Fernando Llorente but the gangly forward somehow contrived to miss and with that, the visitors hopes were all but gone. He followed this with a flat kick which was luckily cleared before it could be capitalised on.

Mauricio Pochettino defends the form of Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli, who he believes has become a victim of increased expectations. When you lie inside and you want to show that you are different. Hugo Lloris suffered a groin injury against Real and he struggled to get down to shots against Borussia Dortmund and West Brom, suggesting that he is not 100 percent.

Puel, an appointment greeted with a shrug by most, had brought the best from the stars he inherited.
