Premier League: Mauricio Pochettino rues dropped points against Sunderland

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino was left to rue his side's lack of killer instinct after twice surrendering a lead against Sunderland.

Spurs led twice at the Stadium of Light thanks to goals from Nacer Chadli and Christian Eriksen, but were forced to share the points after Adam Johnson's strike and substitute Harry Kane's unfortunate own goal.

Pochettino was disappointed to see his side fail to pick up all three points after dominating for long periods on Wearside.

"I am very disappointed. We created a lot of chances and I think we deserved to win today but this is football," Pochettino told Sky Sports.

"Yes the performance can improve and when we analyse today we are very disappointed because in a normal way you get the three points with the chances we have.

"You need to kill the game and we have had the chances to kill the game and if you don't kill the game maybe the opponent will have a chance and today they were lucky.

"You need to hope to win and get the three points, but we have a long season ahead and this is only the fourth Premier League game so we are disappointed to have left two points here."
