Pochettino named in running for Premier League award, Tottenham Hotspur fans react

Tottenham Hotspur have become a genuine force in the Premier League following two title challenges.

In the 2015-16 campaign, Mauricio Pochettino’s men finished third after trying to push surprise champions Leicester City to the wire.

Last season, the North London outfit did one better by securing second place, ending the campaign as runners-up to Chelsea.

Winning the English crown will be tough this time around due to the current unbeaten form being displayed by Manchester City and Manchester United, but Tottenham are just five points off the pace.

In September, the team won three, drew one, scored 10 goals and kept three clean sheets.

As a result, manager Pochettino has been named in the list of nominees for the Premier League’s Manager of the Month.

The Argentine joins Man City boss Pep Guardiola, Arsenal chief Arsene Wenger and Man United coach Jose Mourinho.

It is safe to say that Tottenham fans are slightly biased in who they believe deserves the gong.
