Tottenham made history on Monday night as they cruised to a 3-0 victory away to United, their first win there since Pochettino took over as manager.
In fact, before Monday, Tottenham had never even managed a goal at Old Trafford under the Argentinian.
After a slow start, Harry Kane’s stunning header, and two clinical Lucas Moura finishes put the game to bed, and continued Spurs’ impressive 100% start to the new season.
Kane had this to say on Tottenham’s performance: “In the second half we just said to kind of take it up another level with more forward runs and quicker passing.
“And when you get the first goal it gives you a lot of momentum and we really used that well going forwards.
“Obviously getting the second one straight away really helped and then we finished the game off well.”
Famed for not performing in their big away games, this current Tottenham crop have strung together some fantastic victories away from home against their big six rivals as of late.
Journalists asked Kane if this result was a marker for the rest of the season: “Yeah, 100 per cent.
“We’ve maybe fallen behind at the start of the season the last few years, so we have to stay up there from the very start.
“The only way to do that is to come here and win, and all the other big games as well.
“A great start for us. We’re not getting too carried away, of course, it’s only three games in, but that’s what we needed.
“We needed to start the season well and now it’s about maintaining that for the rest of the year.”
There seems to be a new-found confidence in the Spurs squad this season, perhaps after many of the first team enjoyed great success with their countries at the World Cup. Whatever the reason, fans will be hoping that this is just the beginning.
