Three points to prove Spurs are improving under Pochettino

Tottenham’s new era under Mauricio Pochettino hasn’t exactly been the inspiring journey many Spurs fans were hoping for.

The continuous curse of Europa League football has given them issues against this season, while they haven’t exactly been putting in the performances that you’d expect from a team that is worth well over £100m.

But Pochettino’s side showed some real signs this afternoon that they’re improving under the Argentine, with a lot of fans finally having some good things to say about their team after being so disillusioned with their side for so long.

So here’s THREE points that prove Spurs are indeed improving under their new boss…

Harry Kane is fast becoming a proper footballer

When Kane first broke in to the Spurs squad, most fans didn’t expect him to go on to be the first choice striker he is today.

The youngster has been given the chance to show everyone what he’s all about on a weekly basis and he’s returned that faith with a number of important goals and impressive performances. Now the Spurs fans love him.

Pochettino has turned Kane from being an average striker to one who can go on to achieve good things within the game. Can you net 15+ league goals in a season? No reason why not.

Soldado’s confidence is growing

Poor ol’ Roberto has had a torrid time at Spurs since signing two summers ago, but Spurs fans have kept faith in the Spaniard and supported him throughout.

And he managed to get his first Premier League goal of the season against Everton and put in a dogged performance for the hosts, which didn’t go unnoticed by fans, pundits and neutrals alike.

A goal like that will only boost his confidence and give him the belief that he can find the shooting boots that made Spurs invest so much money on him. If he can go on a little goalscoring run then Daniel Levy might finally believe he’ll be getting some good value for money.

Pochettino’s been criticised by many Spurs fans who felt nothing had really changed under him after dissapointing periods under Andre Villas-Boas and Tim Sherwood.

But he has needed time to get his new players to buy in to his philosophy and we’ve witnessed that happening more and more over the last few weeks. Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela, Harry Kane and Roberto Soldado all look at ease this season and will only continue to improve.

Can Pochettino guide Spurs in to the top four? Only time will tell but, what we do know is that Spurs fans should start feeling exciting about a future under the former Southampton chief.
