Pochettino: Liverpool were the better team

Mauricio Pochettino conceded Liverpool were the better team after they condemned Tottenham a second successive defeat on Saturday.

The Reds maintained their relentless start to the season with a 2-1 victory at Wembley, sealed by goals in either half by Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino.

Erik Lamela grabbed a stoppage-time consolation for Spurs, who had tentative appeals for a penalty waved away in the last play of the game after Sadio Mane challenged Heung-Min Son.

Pochettino believes things may have panned out differently, but was gracious in defeat against a superior Liverpool side.

“They were better, we competed, and we were close,” he told Sky Sports. “The last action was crazy because it was a penalty, Mane on Son. We could be talking after the match in a different way.

“But they were better, there is nothing to say. Of course I am disappointed with the result but we need to keep working and improving. It’s only early in the season but we’ve improved a lot.
