Former Man City striker Emmanuel Adebayor has scored just one goal in the Premier League this term, but Pochettino is satisfied with his leading striker.
Tottenham travel to Manchester City tomorrow lunchtime and the travelling support will be looking to Adebayor to lead the front line against his former side.
“I am very happy with his performances,” Pochettino told the press.
“It’s difficult when the striker doesn’t score, but we have full confidence in him.”
Togo striker Adebayor and Algeria midfielder Nabil Bentaleb are still to return from international duty for assessment, but Pochettino has fitness concerns over a number of other players.
Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris (thigh) and midfielder Nacer Chadli (hip) missed matches for France and Belgium, respectively, during the international break and late decisions will be made on their participation at City.
“Hugo arrived and was good, but we need to analyse and do tests,” Pochettino added.
