Mauricio Pochettino has made a solid start to his Tottenham Hotspur reign, according to his predecessor Mauricio Pochettino.

The north London side were held to a 2-2 draw with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Saturday, meaning Spurs have collected seven point from a possible 12.

And Sherwood, who was sacked by Tottenham at the end of last season, believes his former club will improve as the players come to terms with Pochettino’s philosophy.

“They’ve done well. They ground a result out against West Ham, played very well against Queens Park Rangers,” Sherwood told Sky Sports.

“It was a little bit difficult for them against Liverpool but they should’ve won the game on Saturday against Sunderland.

“Seven points from their first four games represents a solid start to the season, though after leading twice at the Stadium of Light, coming away with just a point will have been viewed as a disappointment.

“But they are showing signs of buying into Mauricio Pochettino’s style of play, and as the season goes on, the side could get stronger.”
