Tottenham Hotspur have certainly been making people sit up and take notice over the past few years as Mauricio Pochettino continues to work wonders at the club.
Many pundits had written Tottenham off at the start of the campaign after they failed to sign any new players during the summer transfer window, becoming the first Premier League club to do so since the inception of the window.
Up until the Pochettino era, Tottenham have historically been viewed as a ‘soft’ side. Even Sir Alex Ferguson used a team talk for Manchester United which consisted of “Lads, it’s Tottenham”, Roy Keane revealed to talkSPORT.
Tottenham’s resurgence has certainly got their North London rivals Arsenal concerned following the impressive 2-0 victory at the Emirates in the Carabao Cup in midweek.
Arsenal legend Ian Wright watched Tottenham in action against Everton at Goodison Park in a performance that saw the away side win 6-2 and it left Wright to post on social media that he was now fearful of his old foes.
Tottenham frighten me ?.

You’d better get used to it, Ian. There has been a power shift in North London.
