Can you name Tottenham’s first competitive XI under Mauricio Pochettino?
Tottenham appointed Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager back in May 2014 and his first competitive game in charge was suitability chaotic. How well can you remember the occasion?
Facing London rivals West Ham at the start of the 2014-15 season, Spurs conceded an early penalty which was missed by Hammers captain Mark Noble and both sides were reduced to 10 men. A fan ran onto the pitch to take a free-kick, while Pochettino’s side scored an injury-time winner to take home the points.
“It was an important win. I want to say congratulations to my players because it was a great performance,” Pochettino told the BBC in his post-match interview.
“After their penalty and our sending off it was a difficult game but we played like a team and in the end deserved to win. The sending-off was a surprise because the shot was not on target. It is possible that Tottenham will appeal this.
“It was a great goal by [blank]. He showed, and we showed, that we are ambitious. We played like a team and that is important.”
We’re asking you to name the Spurs XI from that 1-0 victory at Upton Park.
