Mauricio Pochettino’s five-and-half-year spell came to an end on Tuesday evening – so we’ve decided to take a look through his best memories and most memorable matches during his time at Tottenham.
In no particular order, here are our top-ten games:
Tottenham 5-3 Chelsea – 1 January 2015
Pochettino’s first big scalp. Harry Kane and Nacer Chadli were on fire and if it wasn’t for a late Blues fightback, their margin of victory would have been far greater against Jose Mourinho’s Premier League leaders.
Manchester City 1-2 Tottenham – 14 February 2016
A first away victory against a top-six side that ignited Tottenham’s title charge. A Kane penalty put them in front before Christian Eriksen came up trumps with a late winner from an exquisite Erik Lamela pass.
Tottenham 2-0 Chelsea – 4 January 2017
A third consecutive Premier League brace from Dele Alli saw Spurs end Chelsea’s 13-match winning run ended in the league in front of a memorable atmosphere at White Hart Lane.
Tottenham 2-0 Arsenal – 30 April 2017
Goals from Alli and Kane guided Spurs to a straightforward victory in the final ever North London derby at the old White Hart Lane and guaranteed their first finish above Arsenal for 21-years.
Tottenham 4-1 Liverpool – 22 October 2017
Pochettino’s biggest win against a top-six side. One of the best counter-attacking performances during his reign, which included a wonderful breakaway goal involving Kane and Son which put Tottenham 2-0 ahead.
Tottenham 3-1 Real Madrid – 1 November 2017
One for the ages. European champions in front of a sold-out Wembley Stadium. And Spurs delivered big time on the big stage to humble Zinedine Zidane’s men with a matter of ease.
Chelsea 1-3 Tottenham – 1 April 2018
A stunner from Christian Eriksen and a second-half brace from Alli ensured Spurs ended their 28-year wait for a Stamford Bridge victory with a deserved win in West London.
Tottenham 3-0 Borussia Dortmund – 13 February 2019
A 47th minute goal from Heung Min Son looked set to see Spurs travel to Germany with the tie in the balance, but Jan Vertonghen and Fernando Llorente stuck twice in quick succession to quickly change that and put them on the verge of the quarter-finals.
Tottenham 1-0 Manchester City – 9 April 2019
Spurs were massive underdogs against a Manchester City side that were on a 15-match winning streak in all competitions. Kane hobbled off midway through the second-half, but Son struck late on to ensure Pochettino’s men took a slender lead to the Etihad.
Ajax 2-3 Tottenham – 8 May 2019
A second-half hat-trick from Lucas Moura, including a last-gasp winner to send Tottenham through to their first Champions League final. Nothing more needs to be added.
