Pochettino brushes off Spurs form following second straight defeat

Mauricio Pochettino has insisted that he is not worried about Tottenham's current form following their second-straight defeat in the Premier League.
Goals either side of half time from Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum heaped more pressure on the north London side as Liverpool ran out 2-1 winners at Wembley.
While Jurgen Klopp's men have maintained their perfect start to the season, Spurs have now lost two on the bounce but Pochettino insists that he fully trusts his squad.
When asked if he felt any stress due to any issues on or off the pitch, Pochettino laughed: 'I am so good, no worry for me. We need to be worried for the real things.
'I'm so good, so happy, the way we started the season really well. The circumstances after the World Cup are completely different compared to Chelsea or Liverpool. 
'Before I was relaxed and no worry, and today I'm relaxed and no worry. My trust in this group of players is not 100 per cent, it's 200 per cent.'
Questions are being asked of Tottenham's depth after they failed to bring in any fresh faces this summer - something that Graeme Souness believes will only help their top-four rivals.
Souness told Sky Sports after the game: 'If you stand still and don't buy anyone you're actually going backwards because your rivals are going out and trying to improve. 
'Without Harry Kane how potent would they be? They were missing Alli and Lloris, if he plays today would they concede the first goal? 
'They're not strong enough to fight on both fronts while Liverpool are. Tottenham are a little bit short still, and that should've been sorted in the summer.'
The defeat on Saturday sees Spurs drop to sixth while Liverpool sit pretty at the top of the table with 15 points.
