Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino felt his side were guilty of not using the ball well enough in their 1-1 draw with his former club Southampton at St Mary's.
The hosts took a deserved early lead as Spurs central defender Davinson Sanchez diverted Ryan Bertrand's low cross into his own net.
It was to prove short lived however as Harry Kane took advantage of some static marking from a corner less than three minutes later to nod home his 99th Premier League goal.
Jack Stephens could have put the home side ahead again before half-time, while sub Erik Lamela went close late in the second period for Tottenham before Kane dragged a shot wide from ten-yards with the final scoring chance.
Pochettino felt the points dropped were down to Spurs own doing.
"We needed to move the ball quicker and create more," he said. "The result is the result because football punishes us for not using the ball.
"The game was even, we had more possession but we needed to be more aggressive and create more chances, the performance wasn't great but the pitch didn't help.
"You must give credit to the opponent, but I am not happy with our performance."
Spurs are 23/20 to win their next Premier League game at home to Man United, while they are 15/8 to finish in the top four this season.
Southampton remain in the bottom three despite collecting a point and are 9/2 to be relegated this season. His former club are winless in their past 11 Premier League game but Pochettino doesn't feel they are relegation candidates.
"It is temporary that Southampton are in the relegation zone, for sure they will push up the table. It is two points we are going to miss at the end of the season because it is so tough between six or seven teams," he added.
