Mauricio Pochettino: Tottenham Are No Longer A Title Contender

Mauricio Pochettino confronted Mike Dean after Tottenham's loss at Burnley

Mauricio Pochettino confronted Mike Dean after Tottenham's loss at Burnley

Wood opened the scoring in the 57th minute with a glancing header from a disputed corner before Ashley Barnes' 83rd-minute victor secured a 2-1 victory for Burnley at Turf Moor.

Pochettino's Spanish assistant Jesus Perez jabbed his finger towards the face of Dean while the Argentinian was eventually led away by Burnley defender Phil Bardsley.

Pochettino did not reveal what was said or the reason for the strength of his feelings, with the only really contentious decision appearing to be the award of a corner that led to Chris Wood's opening goal.

"We can not think now of being a real contender". It is a massive opportunity lost for us. "We made some mistakes on the pitch and I made some mistakes afterwards on the pitch".

The outburst was out of character for Pochettino, who could now find himself in hot water with the Football Association.

"It's weird, maybe the cables crossed in my brain". It was weird and odd and has not happened before in 10 years.

"It is not the first time that type of thing has happened with the same referee, but it is not my position to talk about that". I was always under control but what happened there, happened on the pitch. We lose the game because of us, not because of excuses.

"Maybe it's because I knew before the game and after the game that it is going to be hard to be a real contender if we lose".

Spurs' slip means they could end up eight points behind the Premier League leaders by the end of the weekend, with Liverpool taking on Manchester United on Sunday.

They dropped to 37-23 with the loss to Chicago and are in fifth place of the Eastern Conference standings. It was the Celtics' second consecutive loss and fourth in their last six games.

Spurs went into the contest having won every Premier League game they had competed in since Harry Kane picked up an injury against Manchester United last month.

"We've got to be real with ourselves, we've got a tough week coming up so we've got to dust it off and be ready for that". "Spurs are a top side but we didn't allow them to play their usual game". It is in our hands.

"You want to win for the emotion, you know how important was the game and when you feel so disappointed and upset, you make some mistakes", he said. It is not about tactics, or selection. "You have to come here and fight".

Kane showed he had lost none of his predatory instincts as he held off Ben Mee and slotted a cool finish past Heaton for his 21st goal of the season and his first since early January.

Burnley look to match that 1966 run at Newcastle on Tuesday night, and Dyche is proud of the current sequence: "It is another historical marker and we have had many".

Although Spurs were beginning to enjoy the majority of possession, they were struggling to ask keeper Tom Heaton too many questions, with headers from Kane and Serge Aurier posing no real problems.

"That is pleasing, a byproduct but it is very pleasing because it is win games and even draw games at this level".

Since the 5-1 Boxing Day defeat at home to Everton, the Clarets have climbed away from trouble, putting together their best unbeaten run in the top flight since they went nine without defeat in 1966.
