Spurs fans here in the Tavern are absolutely delighted with the start that their beloved team have made so far this season.
Tottenham have always been up there loitering around the top 5 positions in the English top flight for as long as we can remember, but this season has a different feel about it as Pochettino has the Spurs fans in dreamland.
The Argentine mastermind has been a revelation, as he has his side set up perfectly to tackle the challenges of both European and Premier League football. An attacking style of play that promotes a high press system in order to force the opposition into mistakes. Having scored a whopping 19 goals so far this season it certainly is becoming apparent that the players are buying into what is expected.
Having put themselves in promising positions in all 3 competitions so far, it looks as if this could be the possible end to the Tottenham trophy drought. However, the opposition that stands in front of the Argentine and his men is the scrutinized Slaven Bilic and his West Ham side, as they make the trip to Wembley looking to cause an upset.
After an emphatic performance last time out against title challengers Liverpool, a convincing 4-1 win seemed to down the opposition’s hopes of the title as they look to pick themselves up from the thrashing. So with the players in high spirits and the prospects of a trophy still in the frame, it’s up to the fans and players to keep on raising the tempo as the hunt goes on.
One change that has worked well for the London based side has been the introduction to youth, as Harry Winks has now become a regular in the Spurs side as the promising youngster impressed after filling in for injuries. So for any young and up and coming players sat on the sidelines it’s a real eye-opener as they can now see the gates to stardom open up.
So, here are two players that Pochettino could think about featuring against West Ham tonight…
