There are many things Mauricio Pochettino has given Tottenham fans, but arguably the most valuable is a confidence plenty have previously never known. Forget the days of Christian Gross, Gary Doherty and Jonathan Blondel; Spurs these days are a different animal. Where once a 3-0 half-time lead against Manchester United was a dangerous position for Spurs, now regulation 2-0 home wins are barely a surprise.

The club denied such a thing existed last week which, The Mill supposes, you would do if you had a player on your books whom clubs were falling over themselves to offer £50m-plus for.
