"But from my point of view and for the team it is difficult to explain why we didn't win the game today".
England full-back Rose was left out to undertake fitness work at Spurs' training base as Arsenal beat their bitter rivals 2-0 in last weekend's north London derby.
Realistically, the club maintaining Champions League football, having a good Champions league run and winning the FA Cup would represent a very good and realistic finish for Pochettino's Spurs that would set them up very nicely to compete next season.
Asked if Rose was OK with being dropped again, Poch said: "Like other players, it isn't easy".
He said: "In the last 15 minutes we began to play so much better, moved the ball better and found better space".
Tottenham Hotspur had 18 shots on goal against West Brom on Saturday.
The former Newcastle and Crystal Palace boss has a strong relationship with West Brom technical director Nick Hammond since the two men worked together during their time at Reading and Pardew told the Super Sunday panel that talks with the club had taken place.
"But now we need to be focused on trying to improve and trying to be more consistent here at Wembley. I think looking at them and the depth of the squad it definitely has improvement in there so hopefully that's what they'll do".
"The team played very well and created many chances". They have the belief in that moment that it was possible to win the game. They are unbeaten in their group so far and may be considered as dark horses to win the competition.
Kane's equaliser denied West Brom a first win in any competition since August as they are now 12 games without a win, a point ahead of 18th placed West Ham. "It's a big game and one that'll be tough".
"If the worst comes to the worst and I don't get offered anything anywhere else, then I'll go travelling again and continue playing golf badly".
