Mauricio Pochettino has lead Tottenham to some impressive victories.
Mauricio: "The way we play is tough for the players but the most satisfying was the 2-1 win v Arsenal – it was a great feeling."— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) December 2, 2015
Mauricio: "The game last week against West Ham was also very good. I was also very proud after the Chelsea final – although we lost." 1/2— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) December 2, 2015
Pochettino has highlighted that victory over Arsenal as being his most satisfying game as Tottenham boss, and it is certainly an answer which will endear him to the Spurs fans.
The head coach also had high praise for his players for the 4-1 victory over West Ham last weekend, as well as the League Cup Final last season, despite seeing his team lose to Chelsea.
The game last season against Arsenal was a truly typical Pochettino performance, with Harry Kane netting both goals in a 2-1 win.
Despite falling behind to a first-half Mesut Ozil strike, Kane tied the game early in the second period, and scored the winner with just minutes left.
It put the Lilywhites above Arsenal in the Premier League table, and although they ended up below their local rivals, the game was a high-point in Tottenham’s season.
It is a surprise that Pochettino has not mentioned the 5-3 victory over Chelsea on New Year’s Day 2015 as one of his favourite wins, especially as that seemed to indicate the arrival of this current Tottenham team as a side built by the Argentine boss.
Spurs currently sit below Arsenal this season, on 25 points in fifth place. But if they continue playing as they have been under Pochettino, there will be more satisfying victories in the coming months, and a likely Champions League finish this term.
