Puncheon Rues Spurs Defeat

20 August 2016

Having seen his side lose their first two games of the campaign via set-piece goals, Jason Puncheon was ruing Victor Wanyama scoring from a corner as it saw Tottenham Hotspur clinch a 1-0 win at White Hart Lane.

The winger admitted that he was pleased with the majority of their overall display, but after thanks to the Kenyan's header seven minutes from time, Puncheon was left wondering what might have been.

Post-match, he said: "I'm disappointed as I don't think we deserved to lose that but conceding two set pieces has cost us.

"We came into our own in the second half and showed what we're about. We can go toe-to-toe with anyone we're a good team but we're disappointed to concede the way we did.

"It was a lot better than last week and there's a lot more positives to take than that game and we can build on that now with a game on Tuesday and then another next Saturday."

Before the game the players received the news that Christian Benteke has joined the club from Liverpool and Puncheon believes that will prove to be a huge boost for the squad ahead of the final few days of the transfer window.

On the striker's arrival, he commented: "It's a massive lift for us all and pushes us on and it means that everyone will again be fighting for places in the team.

"We need some more bodies to help us and I think we would all welcome that with open arms."
