Pochettino Blames Poor Officiating For Tottenham Defeat Vs Arsenal

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has claimed that poor decision in the build-up to Arsenal’s first goal by centre referee Mike Dean cost his team on Saturday.
Pochettino’s men were favourites going into the game but were outplayed and overpowered by their North London rivals 2-0 in their Premier League clash at the Emirates.
Dean blew up for a foul when Davinson Sanchez brought down Alexis Sanchez , but the Tottenham players felt that it was a clean tackle and Arsenal scored from the free-kick.
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 after the clash at the Emirates.
 “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.”
