Pochettino left Southampton to take charge at Tottenham in the summer and he became the ninth manager to be appointed since Daniel Levy became chairman in 2001.

Andre Villas-Boas was dismissed by Levy last December and his replacement Tim Sherwood was only in the job until the end of the campaign.

Former Espanyol coach Pochettino is aware of the pressure to get results, but he is happy with his early relationship with the Spurs hierarchy.

“I do not worry about that,” Pochettino said. “I know the business in football. I know that you live by the result, you need to get results. If not, you put yourself in difficulties. 

“But the club and the chairman do not put any pressure on me or any challenges for me to achieve something. We have a very good relationship. 

“Every day we talk together, with Franco Baldini and the chairman and with all the board and people here, and try to do the best to help the club and for our supporters to enjoy every game.”

He added: “We understand that football is in the present. It is difficult to take time. Before that we need to improve and learn quickly for sure.

“No, I don’t put any time on it. We need to improve every day. This is our objective. After that we need to get results. I don’t demand time. It’s only to work hard every day, to build and improve every player in the squad. 

“After, always in football, the result manages your career and the decisions, because we need to win. 

“This is our job, not only to provide your philosophy to the team and your style. You need to win, this is the first objective.”

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
