Jermaine Jenas believes Spurs manage games to perfection under Mauricio Pochettino.

Ex-Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas has raved about his former club and their manager Mauricio Pochettino, as heard on BBC Radio Five Live.

Second-placed Spurs sit three points behind Leicester City in the race for the Premier League title, but after watching the Foxes draw 2-2 with West Brom on Tuesday night, they now know that they can go top of the table with a win over West Ham tonight.

This promises to be the most important week of Tottenham's season. Tonight's trip to Upton Park is bound to be a tricky test, and then they face another London derby this weekend as Arsenal arrive at White Hart Lane.

If Tottenham can come out of these two games with at least one win, it should set them up well for the rest of the season and an amazing title victory.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino deserves great praise for his work since arriving from Southampton in 2014, and now former Spurs midfielder has raved about the Argentine, as heard on BBC Radio Five Live.

Jenas suggested that Pochettino has helped Tottenham manage every game situation 'to perfection', as seen when they came from 1-0 down to beat Swansea City 2-1 on Sunday.

Jenas also highlighted that Tottenham have an edge over Leicester in that, whilst they both have the same team spirit, Spurs have greater quality in their team.

"This Spurs side is a different Spurs side to what there was last year," said Jenas. "And I have a lot more faith in them that they will come through this very strong. I think that this Spurs side have got a collective team spirit [like Leicester], but they've also got more quality than Leicester. With the manager that they have, they seem to be able to manage each game to perfection."

"When they're behind, they don't seem to be panicking too much, when they're ahead, they know how to manage that game. They're just in a much stronger place mentally, and from a belief standpoint, than they were last year," he added.
