I am totally sure he was angry about his performance.
He scored twice at Wembley on Saturday to confirm a comfortable victory against the same Huddersfield side and take his season's tally to 15 goals.
Tottenham host Juventus in the Champions League in midweek, and the last thing their fans wanted was for Dembele to make his knock worse by continuing to play in a match which was comfortably in their grasp quite early in the piece.
"I feel so happy, very pleased", Pochettino said.
Defeat leaves Huddersfield only three points above the bottom three, but despite the extent to which they were outclassed, their manager David Wagner has urged them to respond, because of their coming fixtures with Swansea, Crystal Palace, Newcastle, Brighton and Watford that will define their season. 'We need to play our game, be confident and play forward like we play at Wembley.
"We can say Wembley is our home and that is so important for the team since the beginning of the season and last season when we used to play here in the Champions League or Europa League, it was a unusual feeling, a hard feeling".
The South Korean global doubled Tottenham's lead shortly after half-time as Son headed home from six yards following a superb 55th minute cross from Harry Kane.
"If it gets to 80 minutes and it's still 0-0 then we might have a different approach but from the start we'll press high and try to create as many chances as possible".
"We made West Ham dance to our music and it was rock and roll".
Kane bagged Spurs' late victor at Crystal Palace last weekend, and while he didn't score in Saturday's 2-0 win over Huddersfield, he produced yet another super performance. Leicester was held at home by Bournemouth 1-1, and Stoke drew at Southampton 0-0.
Tottenham continued their charge towards Champions League qualification with a professional victory over Huddersfield on Saturday afternoon.
However, Mauricio Pochettino's side battled back to earn a 2-2 draw, meaning a goalless stalemate or a 1-1 tie in Wednesday's second leg at Wembley would take them into the quarter-finals.
But Burnley forward Ashley Barnes equalised in the 56th minute and Wood, making his first appearance after a long injury layoff, won it from close range in the 80th minute. Everton defender Ashley Williams was sent off in the 86th minute for elbowing Barnes.
