Mauricio Pochettino tells his players: Cut out the fancy skills unless it leads to a goal

Erik Lamela nutmegged former teammate Andros Townsend in the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace last weekend.

The crowd loved it, but Pochettino sat stony-faced.

“I understand the reaction of our fans,” he said. “It’s a very good thing.

“To be honest I don’t like this type of thing. I understand the supporters enjoy it.

“I enjoy when my players score goals and win games. For me it was an action but nothing to say.
