'We'll be all together and try to win this game' - Mauricio previews Stoke

Mauricio Pochettino wants to move on as quickly as possible after our Europa League exit on Thursday - and feels the fans will play a huge part as we face Stoke at the Lane at 1.30pm.

Down to 10 men on 40 minutes and needing two goals to go through, we gave everything against KAA Gent at Wembley but fell just short. Leading 2-1, the Belgians caught us on the counter-attack late on and it was game over.

Now we step back into Premier League action having lost just one of our last 10 - and that was last time out at Liverpool.

Meanwhile, we remain unbeaten in the league at home with 10 wins and two draws in 10 games so far.

“There is no time to cry,” stated Mauricio at Wembley. “We can only try to recover and move on now and we go back to White Hart Lane to try to win on Sunday.

“I’m sure we’ll have a tough game against Stoke, they are very fresh but we need to move on. If we play with the right attitude, no problem.”

Mauricio also expects a reaction from Stoke having beaten them 4-0 twice in succession in the Potteries. “Yes, it will be tough, but the Premier League is always tough,” he added. “We're at White Hart Lane in front of our supporters and this is a good opportunity to be all together and try to fight to win the game.”
