Poch managed 290 games whilst at the helm at Spurs, winning an impressive 160 games, the most of any Tottenham manager in the post-war era, which even surpasses double winner Bill Nicholson’s record. This equated to a points per game ratio of 1.89 in the Premier League, which is 10th on the all-time list of Premier League managers.
Pochettino also guaranteed Champions League football for four of his five seasons in charge, more than all other Tottenham manager in the Premier League era combined. Looking at his record against the other ‘Big Six’ clubs whilst in the Spurs dugout, Pochettino had some memorable results, including thumping Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool team 4-1 whilst playing their home games at Wembley and an impressive 2-0 win over City in Pep’s first season in Manchester.
However, his record against the ’Big Six’ as a whole was slightly disappointing, collecting 60 points in 53 league encounters during his time there, only beating out north London rivals Arsenal in the amount of points collected (60 - 51 respectively).
In the year Leicester City won the title, they finished 11 points off after following the Foxes all the way, but quite remarkably, the following year, they finished only seven points behind Antonio Conte's record-breaking Chelsea. And, in truth, it wasn't for the Italian breaking records like longest win streak and most wins in a season, Spurs would have snatched the title.
All in all, a sensational record for a team that isn't expected to compete for titles from Poch.
