Pochettino has already achieved what Villas-Boas and Redknapp couldn't by doing this

Mauricio Pochettino has made a very encouraging start to life as manager at White Hart Lane.

Mauricio Pochettino has already achieved what his predecessors Andre Villas-Boas and Harry Redknapp couldn't by keeping Tottenham Hotspur in all cup competitions up to this part of the season. 

Spurs are in the Capital One Cup semi-finals and the fourth round of the FA Cup, which is something they haven't managed to achieve since the 2008-09 campaign. 

It highlights just how well Pochettino's start to life at White Hart Lane is going and there is a genuine possibility that he will be able to deliver silverware in his first season at White Hart Lane now. 

Tottenham take on Sheffield United in the semi-final of the League Cup, while Leicester City are their opponents in the FA Cup and they will be favourites for both matches. 

Added to this, Spurs also have progressed well in the Europe and are competing for a Champions League spot in the Premier League

It means that Pochettino's side have the possibility of making this season one of the most memorable in recent history for the club's supporters and, although the fixture build-up could be a worry, Pochettino will feel very proud of this impressive achievement so soon after taking over.
