Danny Rose has revealed that he has made a number of visits to Mauricio Pochettino’s office this season to discuss his form.

Tottenham have experienced one of their worst starts to a Premier League season since 2008 when Juande Ramos was in charge.

The left-back has admitted that he has made a few mistakes this season which has seen Pochettino meet with him to analyse the situations.

Rose was particularly at fault for Arsenal’s equaliser in the North London derby at the Emirates when he failed to clear the ball moments before half time which led to Alexandre Lacazette punishing the error.

The England international is eager to rediscover the form which he showed last season and admits that he has had the full support of the Argentine.

Rose considers himself fortunate to have such a good working relationship with Pochettino despite having come in for heavy criticism from some pundits, including Roy Keane (Sky Sports).

He told the Evening Standard when asked about rediscovering his form: “There’s no magic formula,”

“I’ve ­personally made quite a few mistakes this season and I know that because the ­manager has called me in quite a few times and we’ve analysed things.

“It can happen throughout your career and it’s happening right now to me. The manager has done everything possible to help me get back to how I was playing last season. Obviously I’m raring to go and I’m up for the challenge.

“I’m ever so lucky for that ­relationship that I have with [Pochettino]. With Gareth [Southgate], I can say the same. We speak whenever we’re here [at St. George’s Park]. We speak occasionally on the phone and if I play I want to give everything for him and the team, and obviously for the nation.

“I’ve got very good relationships with both managers, I feel as if both ­managers know that I may not always play well but they can rely on me giving 100 per cent in each game that I play. I feel very lucky that I’m in the ­situation I’m in.”
