He said: "We need to learn".
The young Argentine goalkeeper caught the eye on his debut for Tottenham, when he played his part in a win over Crystal Palace. That goal could change everything, you don't know, but we have to move on.
"Kieran needs to improve in the defensive situation because in the last few games you have seen that we conceded a few actions". This, in turn, jumped him up into 18th spot in the overall goalscoring charts, above Gunners legend Ian Wright.
DF Kieran Trippier, 5 - Delivered a fine half-volleyed cross for Lucas' goal, but cancelled that out at the other end when his attempt to nutmeg an opponent in a unsafe area led to Wolves' first penalty. For me, football is about when you don't have the ball.
Mauricio Pochettino is unconcerned by fans voicing their displeasure at his withdrawal of Lucas Moura in Tuesday's 2-1 Champions League win over PSV, adamant it is the first time they have disagreed with him in nearly five years.
Tottenham have already thrown away leads against Watford (twice), Inter Milan and PSV Eindhoven this season and, having almost done so again at Wolves, captain Hugo Lloris has urged his teammates to add some pragmatism to Pochettino's philosophy and learn when to simply see out the game. We created lots of chances, played well and dominated the game, but we could not score.
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino expects the condition of the Wembley pitch to have improved ahead of his side's Champions League game with PSV Eindhoven. "We'll play the way we normally play - front foot, press, trying to attack". We want to be in the next stage - it's not only that we need the help of Barcelona winning the game; we need to do our job and we need to perform as well.
"A lot of hard things that happen but I think we're strong enough to sort out all the problems and arrive and at the end to achieve what the club and fans deserve".
Pochettino admitted to feeling the lowest he had felt at the club amid ongoing delays to Tottenham's rebuilt stadium, a lack of summer signings and nine of his players not returning from the World Cup until five days before the new campaign.
Spurs have just one point from the team's opening three matches in Group B, and their last outing against PSV ended in a 2-2 draw, putting them no closer to group-leading Barcelona and second-place Inter Milan.
