Pundit praises Tottenham’s depth, says more to come from Pochettino’s side

Former Republic of Ireland international Kevin Kilbane admitted ‘there’s probably even more to come from this Tottenham side’ following their 6-0 demolition of Millwall.

Spurs have continued their brilliant form from last season this time round with the team currently sat in second place in the Premier League table.

Despite being ten points behind leaders Chelsea, they have looked a particularly difficult side to beat since Mauricio Pochettino took charge.

“The players all know exactly what Pochettino wants from them and when you come and watch Tottenham you can see the work that’s been done on the training ground,” Kilbane is quoted as saying by the club’s official website.

“Everyone knows their role and if you’re not working hard, you’re not getting in the side – it’s as simple as that here.

“That’s the type of manager that I would like to have played for – you know exactly where you stand with him.”

After a successful spell at Southampton, Pochettino was appointed manager of Tottenham in May 2014.

Last season Spurs were in contention to win the Premier League but were beaten at the last hurdle by Leicester City.

The side have come on leaps and bounds during the former PSG defender’s time with the London outfit and Kilbane believes there is no stopping them now.

“You do feel as though there’s probably even more to come from this Tottenham side,” he continued.

“Certainly since I’ve started doing what I’m doing now you feel as though this season they’ve progressed again and they’re in a great position to kick on over the next few seasons, particularly with the new stadium on the way.”

As well as Pochettino’s managerial heroics, the players themselves have transformed into a team that are capable of pulling off world-class performances and have made White Hart Lane into a fortress that is a fearsome place to visit – as shown in their 6-0 hammering of Millwall on Sunday.

“Harry Winks, superb in coming in. Son scoring a hat-trick, he’s not necessarily a regular starter, Sissoko has come on, he’s made an impact as well,” Kilbane continued.

“It was nice to see Janssen scoring from open play for the first time. So you look at Spurs and they are in a great position.

“I’ve always felt over the last 20 years that they’ve probably had six or seven players in a side where you think ‘yes, excellent players’, I’m talking game-changers, but within the squad now they’ve got 15 or 16 players that can come in like that.”
