Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino hits out at Arsenal's "obvious" offside goal in the North London derby.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has claimed that Arsenal's first goal was 'obviously' offside in this afternoon's North London derby at the Emirates.

Arsene Wenger's men, who were slight underdogs heading into the fixture, sealed a 2-0 victory on home soil.

Shkodran Mustafi scored the opener with a header from a free kick, but Spurs argued that the goal was offside and that the free kick should never have stood.

Referee Mike Dean blew for a foul when Davinson Sanchez brought down Alexis Sanchez, but the Tottenham players felt that it was a clean tackle.

Sanchez ended up scoring the winner for Arsenal, inflicting a second defeat in three league games for Spurs.

"I do not need to say anything, it was obvious for everyone here and watching at home," Pochettino told Sky Sports News. "It is not easy to accept because we lost the game but we have to more on and keep going.

"The free kick for the first goal and the first goal was obvious offside, maybe the second was too. When you play against a team in the top six, the big details are up to you, sometimes things go against you but that is football.

"Granit Xhaka should have had a second yellow card. Sometimes you feel disappointed and frustrated because the small details change a lot."

Tottenham have dropped to fourth in the table.
