Thierry Henry has admitted that he has been very impressed by Tottenham’s progress under Mauricio Pochettino this season.

Spurs are currently Chelsea’s closest challengers in the race for the Premier League title, with the Lilywhites having been in top form in recent weeks.

Tottenham have won eight of their last 10 games to keep themselves in second place in the table and keep the pressure on Antonio Conte’s Chelsea side.

Spurs earned plenty of new admirers last season as they challenged Leicester City for the title but ultimately fell short and finished third behind the champions and Arsenal.

And Arsenal legend Henry admits that Spurs’ success this season has been impressive, pointing to Pochettino’s tactical nous as the key factor behind their success.

Henry told Sky Sports News HQ: “I have to give Mauricio Pochettino credit – that team is well coached. You can see it every time they play.”
