Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino is determined to take positives out of his side’s 4-1 loss at the hands of Manchester City.Spurs put in a decent showing at the Etihad Stadium but a mixture of individual errors and the sublime skills of Sergio Aguero saw them well beaten.And Pochettino wants to concentrate on the good rather than the bad after a demoralising defeat.He said: “I’m disappointed with the result because [losing] 4-1 is too much but I think we need to take some positive things from the game. We created chances but we conceded three penalties.“We had the possibility to score [and make it 2-2] it was a big save from the Manchester City goalkeeper [Joe Hart] and we were in the game but in the end the result was 4-1 and it didn’t reflect the game.”
