Tottenham Hotspur will definitely be looking to bounce back following a tough week after the international break.
As a result, once again Mauricio Pochettino’s future has come under speculation. There are even suggestions that the Spurs players are mentally and physically not responding to Pochettino’s demands, and that the Argentine may have lost the dressing room.
Lucas Moura has said that the club must stick together and find a solution to get out of the current mess they are in. The situation is far from ideal, but surely they must find a way to turn the tide around.
The Brazilian, who has made only two Premier League starts this season, has said that the players must work hard.
“It’s a really difficult moment for us,” he said to Football London.
“But we need to stay together, work harder, not speak too much and work.”
Many Spurs fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to express their reaction. A lot of Spurs fans are puzzled with Pochettino’s team selection, as they believe the 27-year-old should feature regularly in the starting line-up.
The quotes don’t reflect what’s happening on the pitch. Players are not sticking together or with the manager. It’s utter nonsense.

It’s just words though. You are judged on the pitch. Not him personally but as a team it is terrible. I’d be surprised if players came out and said ‘yeah it’s shit, but we don’t care’ Just the standard political response. I love Lucas but I wanna see it on the pitch
