Mauricio Pochettino has admitted playing “home” matches at Wembley makes it feel like Tottenham are always on the road, and the team is finding it difficult.

Spurs have won five of their last six games away from home, including Saturday’s 1-0 victory over West Ham United in the Premier League.

But the Londoners are still playing their “home” matches at the national stadium as delays to the new White Hart Lane-based stadium continue.

Ahead of Tottenham’s crunch Champions League clash with PSV Eindhoven on Wednesday, Pochettino used his press conference to elaborate on a tough period for himself and the club.

“It’s true that it’s difficult to always feel like you’re playing away from home,” Pochettino said (via Sky Sports).

“We’re managing things so that we’re sure in the future [it] will be completely different.

“When I signed my new contract we expected a tough period, but it is tougher than we believed.”

Spurs must beat PSV if they are to stand a chance of reaching the knockout rounds of the Champions League having lost their opening games to Inter Milan and Barcelona.

Pochettino’s men have kept a clean sheet in each of their last two away matches, against Huddersfield Town and West Ham respectively.

Another clean sheet on Wednesday could help Tottenham secure all three points on Wednesday – check out our predicted XI here.
