We're ready for big week - Mauricio

Posted on 1 November 2015  - 15:09

Mentality and focus are key words for Mauricio Pochettino as he prepares the team for three games in six days.


It all starts against Villa in the Premier League at White Hart Lane on Monday evening (November 2, 8pm) and we’re back at the Lane for our Europa League Group J encounter against Anderlecht on Thursday night (8.05pm). We then travel to the Emirates for the North London Derby in the Premier League on Sunday week (November 8, 4pm).

“It’s been a normal, busy week for us,” said Mauricio. “We’ve had a week to prepare for the three games and now we need to work hard to be in good condition.

“The mentality and mood is good which is perfect after the victory against Bournemouth, we are in a very good position.

“We know that we need to carry on in the same way and try to win the games in an important week.

“It’s important to keep the mentality and focus. Our job is to give the players the tools to be focused every day in every training session and during the game, to play our football.

“It’s true that it’s a tough week ahead but we are ready to play and compete. The squad is focused and we are in a very good way.”
