Tottenham's draw in Greece will have felt like a case of deja vu for Spurs fans.

They also wasted a two-goal lead at Arsenal earlier this month.

"No I don't say that [we need to be mentally tougher]. We need to improve in all the aspects," said Pochettino.

"Leading 2-0 against Arsenal, leading 2-0 against Olympiacos, I think we are not talking about quality, we are talking about in this type of situation managing the game better and deal better with this type of situation.

"A few months ago we were in the final of the Champions League and we were not talking about mentality , we got a lot of praise because we were in the final. We need to create a dynamic to match every opponent."

But Pochettino insists he has no concerns about the midfielder's focus.

"No I am happy with [Eriksen's] performance," said Pochettino.

"Maybe yesterday wasn't his best game, like the team, I think the quality of the performance wasn't the best from us but I am happy with the commitment of Christian. He ran a lot, was very committed with the team, the effort, but I'm not concerned about him."

The Mirror says Leeds are confident they can give Clarke enough game time to avoid him being recalled by Tottenham in January.

The 10million winger has only made two appearances for Leeds in the EFL Cup and has not even made the bench for their last five Championship matches.

Clarke, 18, is a victim of the EFL rule that clubs can only field five loanees in their match day squads and Leeds insist he will get his chance before the end of the year.

The 26-year-old helped Spurs to the Champions League final last season, where they were beaten by Liverpool , and fired England to the semi-finals of the World Cup.

He scored from the penalty spot as Spurs drew 2-2 at Olympiakos on Wednesday night, but Ferdinand thinks he should be plotting a way out of north London.

He told BT Sport: "If you look at it as if you're an individual, put yourself in Harry Kane's shoes, you're saying 'I'm off'.

I've got to be honest with you, I'd be gone because I've not got time to hang around. I could get injured next season, I could lose form etc. I want to win now.

"I've given most of my career to this club and they haven't [won anything]. Yeah, you go very close, you can keep going very close, they've been close a few times of winning the league and then obviously the Champions League . It's not enough.

I can understand [Christian] Eriksen, you can understand Eriksen's frustrations and wanting to leave and saying 'I want to go somewhere and potentially win something', not be a maybe."

Spurs threw away a two-goal lead for the second time in three games and opened their Champions League campaign with a draw at Olympiacos on Wednesday to leave manager Mauricio Pochettino fuming.

"We're not young anymore," agreed Kane. "We're not inexperienced. We've played in big games for club and country. That's the hard part to get your head around.

"I can see why the manager is frustrated because he's been here for six years now and we're still making similar mistakes to the ones we were in his first year. We've got to find a way to get around it, improve and get better."

Eriksen's wish of leaving the club this past summer was not granted and he will become a free agent at the end of this season.

And Jenas has slammed the Dane's lack of effort in Greece as Spurs blew a two-goal lead to draw 2-2.

He's unrecognisable tonight," Jenas told BT Sport. He's had a couple of moments where the manager has had a look and you can tell he's thinking "we need to get him off here.

You have bad games as players, he has had many great games for Tottenham over the years but he's sticking out like a sore thumb with how bad he is playing tonight.

He's getting the simple things wrong and that's the worrying thing. He just looks shattered."

"You can see why the manager is frustrated," said England forward Kane.

"He has been here for five years now and we are still making similar mistakes as we were the first year.

"We are not young any more, we are not inexperienced, we have played in big games for club and country.

<![CDATA[Pochettino slams Spurs players after Olympiakos draw: Why didn't you listen?!]]> <p>Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has lashed out at his players after Wednesday's 2-2 draw with Olympiakos.</p><p>The visitors held a two-goal lead thanks to Harry Kane and Lucas Moura.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/pochettino-slams-spurs-players-after-olympiakos-draw-why-didn-t-you-listen-4297275?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BTottenham%2BHotspur'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has lashed out at his players after Wednesday's 2-2 draw with Olympiakos.

The visitors held a two-goal lead thanks to Harry Kane and Lucas Moura.

But Daniel Podence and Mathieu Valbuena rescued a point for the Greek giants.

And speaking after the game, Pochettino said his players did not follow his instructions.

Asked what went wrong from Tottenham, Pochettino said: "I think it's easy to explain. When we are not showing that intensity that the competition demands we struggle. We are not talking about quality. We're talking about being focused, concentrated, aggressive, anticipating the action.

"How many times did we anticipate today? How many times we were not proactive like we were against Palace. That is a very good example in three days, it's a massive difference. It's not about tactics, it's not about quality players, it's about the quality of preparing yourself to be ready to fight.

"At this type of level you need to match the opponent in terms of intensity, aggression, in excitement and motivation and then is going to appear your quality when you are connected with the game.

"That's the first demand you need to work with. It's not only the responsibility of one person. It's everyone's responsibility and it's not possible to, in three days, how we start the game today be a massive difference. That is my disappointment. I feel disappointed for everyone."
