Harry Kane gave the home side the lead with a wonderful strike midway through the first half and Spurs - after scoring 11 goals in their last two matches - might have expected to kick on and subject Wolves to another hammering.
"I think the game was under control in the first half", said Pochettino.
The opener arrived in the 22nd minute, when Kane curled a wonderful left-footed effort beyond the Portugal goalkeeper from outside the box, although Wolves will feel aggrieved that play was not stopped for a potential foul on Ivan Cavaleiro in the build-up.
"But in the second half we started to feel maybe the game was over, and when you feel the game is over you start to play the way you play, start to decide the wrong way, start to play too many long balls and then was hard to recover the balls. I think we used the ball in the wrong way and allowed them to create chances on the transitions".
"We conceded the first goal and in the last 20 minutes, it was tough for the team to find energy to be competitive or to try to win the game". We started to play too many long balls and then it was hard to recover the ball and to play more with your heart than your head and we started to expend a lot of energy.
