Thierry Henry delivers verdict on Poch masterclass after Tottenham win v Bournemouth
By Danny Wright
Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has praised the way that Tottenham are destroying all before them in the Premier League.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side eased to a 4-0 victory against Bournemouth on Saturday and the Frenchman put aside his bitter rivalry with Spurs to give a glowing review of how their manager has got them playing.
Henry sees Pochettino’s strong tactics as the reason they are performing so well at White Hart Lane.
Tottenham are currently unbeaten at home in the league this season and are the only team to do so.
First half goals from Mousa Dembele and Son Heung-Min set Spurs on their way to securing a seventh consecutive Premier League win.

Harry Kane made it three just after half-time before Vincent Janssen rounded off the win with what was virtually the last kick of the game.
“They don’t give their opposition any time on the ball,” said Henry in a video on Sky Sports’ official Twitter page.
“Whether it’s Manchester City, Chelsea, or Watford the other day, or today against Bournemouth – they just know what they need to do.
“They are well coached. You can see that they work a lot in training, especially tactically.”

Tottenham are now four points behind table-topping Chelsea with just six games left to play.
Antonio Conte’s side will have to wait over 24 hours before they can respond to Spurs’ win but they have a very difficult trip to Manchester United, who haven’t lost a league game since October.
Spurs are in their last ever season at White Hart Lane and have now won 12 games on the bounce at their historic home.
Ironically, Chelsea are next on the fixture list for Pochettino and his squad in what is surely going to be a brilliant FA Cup semi-final.
