Tottenham Hotspur-Southampton Preview

Tottenham Hotspur's game against Southampton at St Mary's Stadium on Sunday will mark a significant Premier League anniversary

The game comes five years to the day after now-Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino took charge of his first ever game in English football, for Southampton against Everton. The appointment of the little-known Argentinean had been initially greeted with skepticism, but he made an immediate impact, helping further establish the Saints as a top-flight club before Tottenham swooped in for him 18 months later.

It had taken Pochettino's wife and fellow coach Jesus Perez to persuade him to make the move to the Premier League, but five years on he can look back at the decision fondly as both he and Perez prepare for return to St Mary's.
