Tottenham Hotspur manager hints at a strategy change at Wembley Stadium ahead of Saturday's visit of Baggies

Mauricio Pochettino has explained why he wants his Tottenham Hotspur team to show more patience when they host West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

Spurs are looking to bounce back from last Saturday's north London derby defeat to Arsenal and had to battle hard to a 1-0 home win over Crystal Palace the previous Matchweek.

Pochettino believes a more measured attacking approach could be important against a side who parted company with their head coach Tony Pulis on Monday.

“We’ve struggled a little when opponents come to Wembley Stadium and play deeper and they have the motivation,” Pochettino told Spurs’ official website.

“We need to improve in our positional game in the last third and sometimes we need to show more patience to build the option to create a chance."
