Mauricio Pochettino: 'Tottenham Hotspur lost their focus at Anderlecht'

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino believes that his side lost their focus during their Europa League Group J 2-1 defeat at Anderlecht.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has bemoaned his side's lack of focus during their Europa League 2-1 defeat at Anderlecht.

Spurs started brightly and they found an early goal through Christian Eriksen, before Guillaume Gillet forced a leveller come the interval.

After a strong start the North London outfit faded and were eventually undone when Stefano Okaka earned a winner for the hosts to grab his first goal of the competition this term.

"We started the game very well but then we lost our focus," Pochettino told BT Sport.

"We created three chances in the first 10 minutes and scored. But then we conceded from a set piece and we lost focus in the game after around 10-15 minutes.

"It was difficult to come back. It looks easy but sometimes this happens and for that we are very disappointed, not only with the result but also the performance."

The result sees Spurs slip to third in Group J.
