The stat which highlights just how exciting Tottenham Hotspur's future is under Pochettino

Tottenham WHL

Tottenham Hotspur's XI against Arsenal was the youngest that any team has fielded in the Premier League this season.

The future looks bright at White Hart Lane. 

Under the guidance of Mauricio Pochettino, Tottenham Hotspur have gone from a team who looked unstable and unsettled to one of the brightest in the country. 

Spurs have a number of hugely talented prospects in their ranks and the fact that they are still competing for major honours shows just how exciting the future looks at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham look in with a good chance of claiming a top-four spot, whilst they also have an opportunity to lift their first trophy since 2008 - as they have made the final of the League Cup. 

This owes much to Pochettino's faith in youth since taking over - and this trust was on full display against Arsenal at the weekend.

The Argentine manager named a starting line-up whose average age was just a touch over 24. 

It was the youngest team that any Premier League side has named this season and the fact that they were able to win highlights the talent that Spurs have in their ranks.

Matchwinner Harry Kane is only 21, the excellent Eric Dier is still just 20 and Nabil Bentaleb, who was superb in central midfield, is even younger than that. Indeed, no player in the team was older than Hugo Lloris, who is still only 28. 

It was, therefore, a quite remarkable achievement for a side of such tender years to show the spirit and desire they did to topple Arsenal and it was further evidence of the quality Spurs have in their team, which will only get better as time progresses.
