A look back at the wins against Sunderland, Leicester and Palace...
It feels a long time since Nacer was scoring goals and winning matches at the beginning of last season. So much has changed in just eighteen months, and his long injury lay-off threatened to make him our forgotten man.
After a few anonymous appearances, Chadli was back on the score sheet with a fine finish against Leicester, and followed that up with an assist and fantastic goal against Palace. While it might be a stretch to say he changed the game on saturday afternoon, Chadli did bring us something a little different. We lack true wingers, and that can make us narrow and allow the opposition to keep us in front of them - Chadli is one of the players who will not get drawn to the ball but look to run in behind the opposition's defensive line.
Personally I remain unconvinced that Chadli is really what we need, but there is no doubt that he can prove a useful option.
Stunning strike against Leicester, and lovely slipped pass for Chadli's goal. Still a little off in terms of general play but has been out injured, in his debut season in the Premier League, so an encouraging first season for the South Korean.
Three wins on the bounce, some good changes and selections, and lots of smiles.
Starting in the cups, and Vertonghen's injury gave him a Premier League debut. Depending on how bad the knock Jan has picked up is, Wimmer could be set for a run in the Premier League side.
If Vertonghen's injury is bad, the youngster who has made the bench for the cups might get his senior debut
What a goal.
Kieran Trippier and Kyle Walker
It is quite hard to tell who is Pochettino's first choice full backs are as he has rotated them game by game. Kieran will be pleased to be getting games, and his crossing is impressive - Kyle, however, will not be too fazed by this as at this moment the England international is defensively better and a more imposing physical presence. Was also captain in the cup.
No real candidates for a bad week - even little Tom will be pleased that our cup run is extended and he will have more opportunities for game time - but Bentaleb's return means competition for a central midfield berth has just got a bit stronger.
£14million is not a bad price for an England international in the prime of his career, but there doesn't seem to be a buyer willing to pay that. Might be a late one, but equally could find himself playing reserve football for another six months, and with it his chances of playing in the Euros will go down the pan.
