Despite winning 4-0 earlier today in the FA Cup 3rd round against Preston North End, Pochettino made his feelings clear after the game highlighting he was not satisfied with the first half performance.

ESPN FC pundit, Julien Laurens made his feelings clear after the game as a pundit for coverage in the United States.

Laurens started off the rant by saying, “Nobody can tell me this team is improving! I don’t see any improvement week after week, game after game.”

Laurens also shut down claims with Pochettino hiding behind the ‘time’ excuse, Laurens told ESPN, “But how long? This is January 2024 now, he’s been here since the 1st July. I want to see something. The first half literally you and I [lists ESPNFC pundits] and Freddie and Kate we could have played because there was no movement, nobody was doing anything and the ball was clearly just, well lets just try to find Sterling somehow, lets maybe wait for a run by Palmer…

The full backs don’t participate in anything really. Those attacking midfielders don’t do much either.”

Laurens also jumped to Mudryk’s defence following a quiet game, he continued his rant by saying; “They never used him [Mudryk] they never used his pace, or his skillset and I just don’t understand where they’re going.”

On lack of tactical integration; “I don’t see patterns of play, I don’t see finding the third man, I don’t see anyone running into space. I don’t see much really.”

On Enzo, “We go back to the lack of movement and the lack of identity to this team, if you give Enzo the ball but around him there’s no movement from either your full backs or for your wide players, even from your striker to come a bit deeper between the lines, Enzo can’t do anything. He’s very good on the ball but he’s not a magician either.”

This was said live on ESPN.
