Mauricio Pochettino has pushed Tottenham Hotspur to the top 3 spots of the Premier League and after having claimed a 2-1 triumph over Manchester City, the Argentine coach is starting to turn heads around as he is making a huge impact in this season.
Tottenham Hotspur has turned into genuine contenders to win the Premier League title in this season along with Arsenal and Leicester City.
Tottenham have been a breath of fresh air this season. The club has always been rather weak when comes to defending, but this has changed in the space of a summer.
Tottenham now have the best defensive record in the Premier League after letting in only 17 goals in the 20 league outings. This good record has been a major factor in Tottenham being only couple of points behind table leaders Arsenal. The talk of a top four finish has now been transformed into a potential title challenge, which has never before been experienced by the club supporters.
Tottenham are going through the phase that teams like Arsenal have experienced only recently.
Tottenham Hotspur sustained a 0-1 defeat in their opening match of the Premier League season as the team of Mauricio Pochettino faced off with Manchester United in Old Trafford and an own goal from the 25 year old defender Kyle Walker allowed the home team on winning the game as Manchester United came out on top with the victory as they snatched all 3 points but this result was a wake-up call for Mauricio Pochettino as the Argentine manager is now interested in signing a few more players before the summer transfer window reaches it’s end in September.
Tottenham striker Harry Kane feels that he should be even better next season in order to match or even better the tally of league goals that he managed in the 2014/15 season.
Kane turned out to be one of the best players during last season. Despite not having been a first-team regular until October, the England international managed to score only a couple of goals less than the Golden Boot winner, Sergio Aguero. Kane could have easily won the PFA Player of the Year award had it not been for the brilliant Eden Hazard of Chelsea, who helped his team win the league title.
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino admits that the Europa League may start to become a mental strain for the players from next campaign.
The club are on course to qualify for this competition for a fifth consecutive season. They had been hoping to reach the Champions League for only the second season in their history, but those hopes have been destroyed after two disappointing results against Burnley and Aston Villa. A goalless draw against Burnley has been followed up with a 1-0 defeat against Villa and it has effectively ended their hopes of a top four finish.
Harry Kane at the age of 21 has begun to take in the majority of the attacking responsibilities of Tottenham Hotspur as the young player has made 22 league appearances and scored 14 goals for his club which is the highest amount of goals scored for any player of Tottenham.
For such a young player this could be just too much of a burden for the English attacker to take in and Mauricio Pochettino believes that his shining star will need help to handle all of this pressure.
Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has revealed for the first time that he would be open to the possibility of playing for a club in the MLS.
This is the first statement by the Spanish goalkeeper about a move to North America. Past Madrid players who have gone on a similar route includes the iconic David Beckham, who is still looking to start the much awaited franchise in Miami.
The former Manchester United and AC Milan midfielder moved to LA Galaxy and this kicked off the popularity of the league in the last few years.
Tottenham finally managed to break the poor run of form against their London rivals Chelsea after beating Jose Mourinho’s team 5-3 at White Hart Lane on New Year’s Day.
This was a mightily impressive result for Tottenham given that they were not favourites to get anything against the table leaders despite playing at home.
