Pochettino says he's waiting to see if he has time to "build"

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino says the club are in transition but will wait and see if he is given the "time to build what we want."

The club sit 13th in the Premier League table, 11 points off a spot in the top-four. They drew yesterday at home to newly-promoted side Sheffield United. The Republic of Ireland's David McGoldrick had a goal disallowed for the visitors - a decision that took four minutes.

Last season, Spurs got to the Champions League final, losing to Liverpool in the decider in Madrid, while they finished fourth in the Premier League.

Speaking after the draw to Sky Sports, Pochettino said, "we need to find a balance. We are building a team when we play in the Champions League and the Premier League, the toughest league in the world. It is dangerous as situations like this can happen. You expect better results than you get.

"We are in the process to build and we will see if we have the time to build what we want. It was an even game when you assess the game it was a fair result, they deserved the point."

"They were the better team in the first half and were better in the second half. We started the game not well, it was a little bit strange the feeling of Tanguy Ndombele, he never felt comfortable in the game and maybe that affected the team.

"We arrived to the first half and we changed for Harry Winks and then we played better. We are disappointed because we knew we were going to find a team that would be aggressive and very energetic, well organised. This is the worst opponent you can have when you come to play from Wednesday in the Champions League, a very long way.

"I am disappointed because in the moment we broke them down to lead 1-0 in the second half, not keeping that advantage or scoring the second goal in that moment when we dominated the game. We feel so disappointed, I don't know the word to use. Upset or frustrated, but it is not a happy feeling."
