Tottenham Hotspur have now finished in the top four for an impressive four seasons in a row, which comes with it consistent Champions League football.
Since taking over five years ago, Pochettino has undoubtedly taken Spurs to the next level, from Champions League dreamers to consistent appearers.
However, the one thing missing from the Poch CV at Spurs is a trophy, with the North London outfit now going over eleven years without a piece of silverware.
Perhaps the closest Tottenham have come to real glory in recent years came only last season, as they made it all the way to the Champions League final.
Unfortunately, in a poor night in Madrid for both teams, Liverpool edged the game by two goals to nil, taking the prestigious trophy back to Merseyside.
Ex-Spurs and Liverpool star, Peter Crouch, believes that Spurs will be Liverpool and Man City’s closest challenger this season, but they will ultimately fall short and finish third.
He said (Daily Mail): “[Spurs are] the closest challengers to Manchester City and Liverpool.
“Forget about some of the erratic results they had last season when they struggled with fatigue and injuries — Tottenham are a brilliant side and will comfortably finish third again.
“They have spent a lot of money and the arrival of Tanguy Ndombele is exciting — he will add drive to the midfield.
“Everyone knows about Harry Kane, who will be desperate to win the Golden Boot again, but I want to stress the importance of Son Heung-min.
“He is a top player, one of the best forwards in Europe and I think he will be even better again this season.
“Dele Alli will also be fired up. I love watching Tottenham play and think they will go from strength to strength.
“Harry Kane – there’s so much more to his game than goals but few better strikers around.
“If he stays fit, expect Spurs to secure a fifth consecutive top-four finish — and Kane to win the Golden Boot.”
