Sluggish Tottenham under scrutiny after 3 straight losses

Tottenham had more players in the World Cup semifinals than any other team. It also was the only Premier League club to not sign anyone in the European transfer window.

As Mauricio Pochettino's sluggish side stumbles in the first busy period of the season, those factors might be starting to show.

Tottenham has lost three straight games - two in the Premier League and the other against Inter Milan in the Champions League on Tuesday - heading into a typically difficult away match against Brighton in the Premier League on Saturday.
