“We are moving in the right direction,” Chilwell assured fans. “Every game we have controlled possession and the majority of matches we have played well.
“We need to finish chances, be more ruthless and stay composed to get back into games.
“That's the final bit, finishing our chances. If you look at the stats we dominated the game, had the possession, but the most important stat is the goals.
“We lost in that department and lost the game, that is the black and white of it.”
Chilwell has been moved to left wing in a 4-2-3-1 formation of late, in a ploy by Pochettino that has failed to improve their form.
He said: “I think in the future we will be talking differently. He needs time to adapt to the Premier League. He is doing a fantastic job but scoring is not easy.
“He is a little bit rushed in his decisions. He needs to be a little bit more calm and relaxed and for sure he is going to score goals.”
