Mauricio Pochettino has revealed what he said to Spurs right-back Serge Aurier after the Ivorian committed three foul throws against Crystal Palace on Sunday - reportedly the most in a single Premier League game. 

The Argentine joked that he would put his players on an intensive throw-in training regime this coming week, and laughed as he said that he told Aurier that he could be 'sacked' for not making his players practice throw-ins. 

"We missed a practice during the week!" he said in his post-match press conference. 

"We are going to practice every day, I promise you and I promise our fans too because I'm sure they are very disappointed. I think the first he was a little bit upset and tried to put the ball quickly into play, and then maybe made a mistake. 

"You know it was probably a little bit too much pressure from the referee, similar to Dele. When Dele does something he gets the focus, it was the same with Serge with the ball. I promise everyone that we are going to practice, every day!"

Asked if he spoke to Aurier after the game, he said: "Of course! I said to him, you are going to get me sacked because it looks like we are so bad, we don't practice throw-ins!"

Spurs won the game 1-0 thanks to a late strike from Harry Kane, heading home in the dying minutes to break open a stubborn Palace side at Selhurst Park.
