Pochettino got it wrong with Mousa Dembele in Tottenham's clash with Arsenal

Monday, 20 Nov, 2017

A win in the north London derby will take Spurs seven points clear at the top and end any hope of the Gunners challenging for the title this season.

Despite the victory, the Daily Express' sports reporter Matt Dunn queried why Arsenal have not been able to produce the same kind of performance on a regular basis.

Sherwood took over at Tottenham following the ill-fated reign of ex-Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas, who was sacked midway through the 2014/15 season. "When you see the academy, we have a lot of talent - we need time and patience to help them achieve".

Tottenham may have finished two places above them, but Poch's achievements at Southampton, finishing in eight place, was enough for him to catch the eye of the north London club. It is important to remember we played without him for ten months. "But the principal option is to win the Premier League and put Tottenham in a position to win the Champions League".

European heavyweights Manchester United and Real Madrid have been credited with showing interest in the Argentine tactician. We were better than them.

But Wenger's later teams, including the 2003-04 "Invincibles" team, had a distinctly foreign feel, and no one has fielded more Premier League XIs without an English player than the 68-year-old.

Now it appears Shaw is about to be presented with a chance to relaunch his career with Pochettino, with the defender who has started just three Premier League games for United throughout 2017 finally deciding he is fighting a losing battle in his bid to get back into manager Jose Mourinho's plans.

"When I saw this same team at Liverpool when they were beaten 4-0, Liverpool were flying everywhere and Arsenal were absolutely supine".

"Do any team do it every week?"

We think Daniel Levy can probably rest easy at night knowing he made the right choice. That is fantastic. They are not close to the first team but it is a fantastic experience for them.
