‘If Tottenham lose to Watford then Pochettino is finished’

If Tottenham lose to Watford in their next Premier League match then Mauricio Pochettino will be sacked, according to Tony Cascarino.

Spurs have been plunged into crisis this season after winning only three of their first 11 games and a horror week saw them follow up a 7-2 hammering by Bayern Munich in the Champions League with a 3-0 loss at Brighton on Saturday.

Pochettino – who guided the club to the Champions League final only five months ago – has had to defend his position, insisting he does not fear the sack.

“The signs for Tottenham Hostpur are alarming,” writes Cascarino in The Times.

“The team are getting worse, they are noticeably poorer than two years ago.

“Jan Vertonghen, Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld, Dele Alli – none of them are at the levels they were.

“Aaron Connolly, the 19-year-old, came in and did well for Brighton, scoring twice in the 3-0 win, but he is no Robert Lewandowski. Connolly made a mockery of their back four.

“Mauricio Pochettino’s record entitles him to a fair crack at turning things around but I am sceptical as to whether he can. If they lose to Watford in their next game after the international break, he is finished.

“He is under pressure and making poor decisions. Eric Dier clearly was not fit to play on Saturday and Moussa Sissoko was out of position at right back.”
