After being appointed Tottenham manager over the summer of 2014, Mauricio Pochettino has faced a variety of challenges in both the Premier League and the Europa League.

Spurs, hinted as favourites to win the Europa League, failed to win away to Partizan Belgrade and home to Besiktas, leaving Spurs fans questioning whether their team can go all the way.

The Premier League has also seen Tottenham have one of their worst starts in recent years after they lost three home games, two deemed to be easy wins as Spurs faced West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle.

Levy disappointed so far?

There have been highlights for Pochettino's side as they drew away in the north London Derby and salvaged three three points at West Ham, as well as beating Queens Park Rangers 4-0 which saw them go briefly to to the top of the Premier League table.

Despite these respectable results, Daniel Levy has looked disappointingly down from the stands as his team now sits in the bottom half of the table.

Only a few signings have impressed

In the last two summer transfer windows Levy spent over £100 million on players, leaving Pochettino with the task of blending these players into the large Spurs squad, however out of all these signings only Christian Eriksen, Nacer Chadli and Erik Lamela have impressed.

Tottenham, with such incredible talent and squad depth, should certainly not be in the bottom half of the Premier League table, and despite progressing to the quarter finals of the Capital One Cup, all Spurs fans will be turning their heads to Pochettino to see what he does next to try and push his team up the table.
