Mauricio Pochettino delivered another tactical masterclass against Arsenal on Sunday, to frustrate Tottenham’s North London rivals.

The Argentine switched to a back three, which saw Spurs maintain their defensive solidity, while looking much more dangerous going forward than has been the case in recent games.

A 1-1 draw extended Pochettino’s unbeaten run in the Premier League against Arsene Wenger to five games.

Key to Pochettino’s success against Arsenal is the manner in which Tottenham’s fitter and stronger players, press Wenger’s team and disrupt their normal passing game.

The following statistics show the lowest passing success rates for Arsenal in games over the past three seasons. Four of Spurs’ performances under Pochettino make the top ten, with three of them occupying positions two to four.

Let’s hope for another entry into this list later on in the season and Pochettino’s second victory against Wenger.
