Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has insisted that he is “not worried” about his side’s ongoing struggles in the Premier League at Wembley.
Tottenham looked to have ended any discussions of a Wembley hoodoo with their 3-1 Champions League win over Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday, but their poor domestic form at the temporary home continued with a goalless draw against Swansea City this afternoon.
Tottenham have already dropped seven points from three games in front of their own fans this season – more than they did in the entire 2016-17 campaign at White Hart Lane – but Pochettino played down the significance of their dip in home form.
“The reality is that we dropped a lot of points after three games but I am not worried. We could spend one season talking about that and maybe at the end then you can see it or everyone can say, ‘Yes, Wembley was a problem’,” he told reporters.
“It’s true that last season was a fantastic season at White Hart Lane. But today we are at Wembley and White Hart Lane is in the history.
“We are building a new stadium which will be fantastic and then I believe that every single season is completely different. We cannot compare last season with this season.”
