Tottenham tactics Harry Kane reveals Mauricio Pochettino half-time tweak sealed win over Manchester United

"When you lose you must learn and improve but my disappointment is when you win and maybe you didn't deserve to win, why no learn?"

Undefeated Tottenham goes to undefeated Watford on Sunday on the fourth matchday of the 2018-19 Premier League season.

Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino has explained why his side lost 2-1 against Watford in the Premier League.

Spurs had looked on track to maintain their 100% record and end Watford's when Abdoulaye Doucoure scored an own goal early in the second half.

Watford hit back with Deeney powering a header of his own off target, but that was as good as it got for the Hornets who allowed Spurs to keep hold of the ball for much of the first half. "But the last three wins, when we won games, nobody asked me [about that]".

"In every single game you're going to find this type of situation". "If you want to be a contender and to be on top you can not concede from this type of action".

Lloris will not be available against Watford, however, as Tottenham look to protect their flawless start to the season against another side with a 100 per cent record. "Even the goal was our mistake and I think we kept them really quiet today".

"Today we had a very good defensive work in this part of the game, and after we felt better, with a good reaction, and we were able to score two goals". We need to fight against the perception.

Victor Wanyama is back in full training after recovering from a knee injury but Son Heung-min is still away on global duty with South Korea after winning the Asian Games.

But Watford rose to the challenge to secure a first league win against Tottenham since 1987 - underlining their status as the league's surprise package.

"It's a big moment for us".

"It was an important start but we know it's only the beginning".
