"We must try to play our own game and it will be good to see our progress under pressure against a good opponent".
There is no shortage of theories to explain the recent run of poor results that has quickly turned Tottenham into an also-ran in the Premier League title race.
Jamie Vardy's stunning strike opened the scoring for the Foxes inside the first 15 minutes to give Claude Puel's men a brilliant start.
"The second half we were more aggressive and started to play the game".
The manager also included Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez in that group with Eriksen, claiming that Tottenham were "trying to provide him [Eriksen] and different players more time to rest and recover, with different strategies, and trying to help".
And should fixtures involving Arsenal, Liverpool and Burnley go against them, Spurs could fall to as low as seventh place by the end of tomorrow. The Gunners' 5-0 victory over Huddersfield on Wednesday was perhaps their most impressive performance of the year.
There's been a conspiracy-level theory floating around Tottenham that suggests that the release "Brave New World" was timed poorly, and that the revelations and stories about Pochettino and the 2016-17 season might have negatively impacted some of his players. The obvious reason is the injury to Toby Alderweireld.
As predicted, Mauricio Pochettino has switched his full-backs with Serge Aurier and Danny Rose coming in for Keiran Trippier and Ben Davies while Hugo Lloris keeps goal once more. The views expressed in his/her articles are the author's alone and do not necessarily reflect the views of FanDuel.
There are big implications in this match, and it will likely be must-see TV for the soccer fan. You can't expect players to stay when they can double their salaries at another club.
Mauricio Pochettino has dismissed suggestions his recently released book is a contributing factor to Tottenham's faltering form.
Slipping down the Premier League table, Spurs have won just a single match in their last five encounters. Tottenham have a choice. Or accept they are a medium-sized club that will intermittently outperform expectations. His teams have often struggled at the beginning of a season, but never at this point.
