Mauricio Pochettino Is Clearly A Football Genius As Woeful Tottenham Midfielder Stars In Chelsea Demolition
Mauricio Pochettino has achieved plenty during his managerial career in England but he may have reached a new high this evening as Tottenham demolished Chelsea in stunning circumstances.
The team in white came out of the blocks like a scolded cat against Chelsea and were far too good for the Stamford Bridge team in all areas of the pitch.
Harry Kane and Son destroyed an awful Blues defence with some devastating attacking football but the star of the show was a more unlikely hero in the form of French midfielder Moussa Sissoko.
The former Newcastle player has been a shambolic signing for Tottenham over the past couple of years with the Frenchman attracting criticism from all corners since his move to North London.
Pochettino is known for his man management of players and the Argentinean appears to have worked a miracle with Sissoko with his form of late taking a massive upturn.
The bustling midfielder took his Tottenham career to new heights against Chelsea as he dominated the game from the centre of the park and credit to that must go to the Tottenham manager, who has clearly found the key.
The 29-year-old was everywhere at Wembley and the fans are amazed by the transformation in a player most had already written off...
Who woulda thought that Moussa Sissoko was the best footballer on the planet?! - (@pitqarokoratu)
I am just not sure how to deal with the fact that Moussa Sissoko might end up being the solution to our midfield problems. - (@rddocketr)
This new Moussa Sissoko is unbelievable....- (@fishdolski8)
Tottenham have leapfrogged Chelsea into third place in the Premier League table as a result of this win against the blues and Pochettino will be delighted with the way his Spurs squad have bounced back after a tricky start to the campaign.
The former Espanyol Manager remains one of the most highly touted in world football and if he cab turn Moussa Sissoko into a world class player, then he can probably do just about anything!
• 100% tackles made
• 100% aerial duels won
• 100% take-ons completed
The most recoveries (6) and tackles made (4) on the pitch.
