Tottenham Hotspur are enjoying the dream start to their season this year under Mauricio Pochettino.

The club currently sit in third place in the Premier League after their best ever start to a season.

Spurs also find themselves in the knockout rounds of the Champions League after one of the greatest turn around in recent years.

Finally, Tottenham also booked their place in the semi finals of the Carabao Cup, where they will take on Chelsea in February next year.

All of this and it isn’t even Christmas yet, and Spurs have also had to contend with Wembley home games, vast squad injuries, and nine players in the World Cup semis.

Could this finally be the season that Tottenham end their decade wait for a trophy, and Pochettino wins his first piece of silverware as a manager?

One man who thinks Spurs have a decent chance this year is ex-player Dimitar Berbatov.

He said (Betfair): “Talking Spurs, that was a tremendous performance to knock Arsenal out of the cup on Wednesday night and now they will face Chelsea in the semi-final.

“They may be more used to winning silverware at Stamford Bridge but there’s no way you can say that Chelsea are favourites to go through in this one. The table tells us that both teams are very closely matched, and Tottenham are not winning all these games through luck. They play good football, score great goals and we are talking about them in the same breath as the big teams in European football right now.

“A final against Manchester City would be hard but Spurs would obviously have a chance in a one-off fixture.

“Whether that means Pochettino would want to stay on into next season and attempt to win more trophies or if he would feel that he has achieved a goal with the club I don’t know. Human nature is impossible to predict!”
