Pochettino slams "arrogant" Tottenham after loss to Southampton

Ahead of the Manchester United game, Charlie Nicholas revealed that Arsenal will be out of the race for a top-four finish in the Premier League if they lose to the Red Devils.

Pochettino was serving the first of a two-match touchline ban on his old stomping ground and was particularly frustrated that his side failed to build on their first-half dominance after Harry Kane's 200th career goal opened the scoring.

Goals from Yan Valery and James Ward-Prowse in the final 14 minutes gave Southampton a vital three points in their bid to avoid relegation.

"I don't think anyone expected us to get anything but with the belief that we showed and the character in the second half, that epitomises everything the manager has brought into the team and the club. The following has been agreed with the Premier League, Brighton and Crystal Palace to ensure that our first game is a Premier League match prior to a UEFA Champions League quarter-final match", a Tottenham statement said.

However, Spurs are still in the Champions League, having beaten Borussia Dortmund 4-0 on aggregate to reach the quarter-finals.

"I am so, so, so disappointed". You can use the first half as an example of [positive] arrogance, playing with intention, focus, concentration - we matched them in everything and we were much better.

"The reality is you can not only play for 45 minutes, we are a Champions League team, into the quarterfinals", said Pochettino, whose side beat high-flying Borussia Dortmund 1-0 in Germany on Tuesday to complete a 4-0 aggregate win.

"But still we are in a position that everyone should sign for at the beginning of the season". That's why we're talking a lot in the last four and a half, five years. "To be consistent, you need time, if you want to be a real contender in the future". "We threw it away really".
