Pochettino won't panic.

Mauricio Pochettino insists he will never panic despite Tottenham's recent form that has seen them not registered a win in five matches across all competitions.

Following their 1-1 draw with Premier League champions Leicester City the Spurs boss decided to take the positives from Tottenham's ability to prevent a defeat.

"I don't remember having one [as frustrating as this]," Pochettino told reporters about Spurs' run, which was extended with a 1-1 draw at home to Leicester City on Saturday.

"It is hard with the small problems we have with Toby Alderweireld, Harry Kane, Moussa Sissoko's suspension and Erik Lamela on Saturday.

"Yes, it is true it is a tough period when you play, play, play that you need all the squad available, but you need to adapt to the competition and we are happy.

"I never panic. In football, no. Sometimes I am scared to walk on the street, because you never know if crazy people are there but, in football, never.

"It is true we are disappointed with the last few results but, in a bad period, we are very positive because we are unbeaten. Maybe we didn't win but we didn't lose, and that is important.

"We show in every game a good performance but football is not all about performance, keeping possession, playing well and building up from the back; it is about scoring goals and we need to be more determined.

"We have two very important games ahead of us - [Bayer] Leverkusen will be key for us, and Arsenal too next Sunday, because it is the north London derby."

Spurs play Leverkusen on Wednesday night in the Champions League having registered four points from three games in Group E.
