Photos: Pochettino joins in with Spurs training; fires shot on goal

Tottenham Hotspur's team were pictured in training ahead of their match against Newcastle United earlier today.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has seemingly taken a hands-on role at training today, joining in with a shooting drill.

Tottenham are gearing up for their match against Newcastle United at the weekend and they were put through their paces on a glorious afternoon in London.

Pochettino certainly seemed to be enjoying himself and he couldn't resist checking out his shooting technique, as shown in the picture above.

Also snapped in the session were the likes of Nacer Chadli, Michel Vorm and Andros Townsend, and the trio all looked to be enjoying the conditions.

Spurs will be hoping that the relaxed atmosphere of their training session aids them at the weekend as they need to rediscover their best form.

The Lilywhites have looked off the pace in their last two Premier League matches - against Burnley and Aston Villa - but they will want to get back on track against Newcastle.

Although Pochettino's side's top-four hopes seem over, they will be determined not to let their season peter out and they have a good opportunity to get back to winning ways against Newcastle.

John Carver's side have been woeful in recent weeks and it seems the end of the season can't come soon enough for the North East outfit. 

Here are the best of the other photos from Tottenham's training session earlier today.
