Man Utd great: Pochettino has now got a team out on the pitch that's reflective of him.

Gary Neville has heaped praise on Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino for the advancement made by his side.

The Lilywhites, who have lost only one game in the league, went to rivals Arsenal on Sunday to seal a point following an impressive display which has made Man United legend Neville believe the Spurs manager now has a team in his image.

"Tottenham were fantastic," the former Manchester United captain told Sky Sports. "Pochettino has really had to take the house down brick by brick and re-build it in the last 18 months.

"It's not easy to move some players on - with the wages they are on, they want to hang around - and he's done that. He's now got a team out on the pitch that's reflective of him. If I was a Spurs fan, I would gain great encouragement.

"There's a team out there now that isn't as flaky as it used to be, that runs like crazy, that absolutely ran all over Arsenal for 75 minutes during that game. If there was one part of the match that they failed in, it was heading the ball - they couldn't clear their box.

"But it was a fantastic performance from a young team. From Pochettino's point of view, he will have a bit of a tingle because he can feel where he's taking this team. You can see the work that's going in on the training ground."
