Alan Sugar has pleaded with Arsene Wenger to abandon Arsenal in favour of a move to White Hart Lane in a bid to revive Tottenham’s stuttering season, with it having reached a nadir this weekend after defeat to West Brom.

Miserable performance

purs were condemned to a 1-0 defeat at home to Alan Irvine's side, who had been bottom of the Premier League prior to the encounter, and are now without a victory in four games since defeating AEL Limassol in late August.

Their last outing at White Hart Lane had ended in a 3-0 loss to Liverpool and, having initially began positively under Mauricio Pochettino, Spurs have dropped off the pace somewhat with the north London derby on the horizon.

This will be the first time Pochettino has presided over a game against Arsenal but, if Lord Sugar had his way, it would be Wenger rather than the Argentine in the Spurs dugout for the encounter at the Emirates Stadium.

The former Spurs chairman tweeted following the West Brom loss: “Here we go,same old same old Spurs can't beat bottom of PL club.mid table club again Please Arsene deflect across N.London.”

It was a lamentable display from Spurs against the Baggies, with the home side able to muster just one shot on target in the entire game - the second time in succession at the Lane they have recorded such a miserable statistic.

Pochettino, however, was not prepared to use his club’s involvement in the Europa League on Thursday, for which they had to travel to Serbia, as an excuse for such a poor display against a side tipped by many for relegation.

The sack race

Things could have been worse, of course. Before Spurs moved for Pochettino, they had been in discussions to bring Louis van Gaal to the club. The Dutchman chose a move to Manchester United instead, and that has hardly gone to plan.

For what it’s worth, Van Gaal has been given odds of 22/1 to be the first manager in the Premier League to lose his job this season, with only five candidates having been offered shorter prospects.

Pochettino, meanwhile, is 50/1 to get the chop ahead of anyone else, and just two managers have been given longer odds than that: Arsenal rival Arsene Wenger and Chelsea’s Jose Mourinho.
