Tottenham’s Premier League season started with a bang in August, as the Lilywhites opened with three wins from three.
Pochettino’s men had a 100% record, Kane had broken his August scoring duck, and Lucas Moura looked like the new signing of the century.
Then September happened.
Since those opening three wins, Tottenham have slumped to three consecutive losses in all competitions.
This started with a 2-1 defeat away to Watford, despite Spurs leading with 15 minutes to go. Tottenham then put in a dismal showing against Liverpool at Wembley, before throwing away another lead late on against Inter Milan in the Champions League.
A few weeks ago, people were talking about Tottenham as outsiders for the league title, now people are questioning whether they will get top four.
Tottenham midfielder Erik Lamela still believes that a challenge is possible: “If we want to fight for the title, [we] can’t lose anymore points. We have to start winning and win some games in a row to keep focus on the title, on everything.
Lamela also spoke about his relationship with manager Pochettino to ESPN: “The first year I was here, he helped me because my English wasn’t very good.
“It was important for me to have a manager speaking Spanish, and other South American players because there are many young players in the team who also speak Spanish.
“But, in the end, my relationship with him is like the one he has with my other teammates, it is the same for all of us.”
What do you think? Can Pochettino lead his players to silverware this season? What would deem a successful campaign?
