That is all we can try to do.”Tottenham have won just two of their five Premier League games thus far this season, similarly throwing away a two-goal lead to Arsenal in a 2-2 draw as well as falling to a shock 1-0 defeat to Newcastle at home.Pochettino is far from happy with his team’s start to the season, particularly on the defensive side of the ball. “In the beginning of this season we are conceding a lot of chances and lots of goals and we need to change that,” Pochettino said. “The only way we can change is being more demanding from ourselves.”That is the way we are going to approach the different days and be more consistent.”Tottenham return to Premier League action with a game against Leicester City on Saturday.
