Tottenham legend, Ledley King has claimed that you can see the current team is playing for Nuno Espirito Santo after a determined start to the Premier League season.
Spurs opened their campaign with three consecutive 1-0 victories over Man City, Wolves and Watford, with King putting particular emphasis on the clean sheets.
However, he also praised the work of Oliver Skipp, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and the attacking players in working towards that defensive consistency, something that was lacking last season.

Spurs Web Opinion:
I agree with Ledley here. You can see a strong togetherness in the team, as well as a sense of purpose. No one is there to be carried. No dead weight will be tolerated. Everyone is looking fit and sharp. Dare I say it, a similar focus to the start of Pochettino’s reign.
