Premier League (5th)
Capital One Cup: The Final
FA Cup: Fourth Round
Europa League: Round Of 32
Once again, this season can be looked upon as a transition season under the new management of Mauricio Pochettino, and the Argentine has had a decent first season at Spurs. Below I look back at all of our results from the 2014/15 season, use the numbers at the bottom to navigate.
Life at Tottenham started off pretty well for new manager Mauricio Pochettino, dimmed a little by a 0-3 defeat to Liverpool at the end of the month, Pochettino’s first month in charge resulted in four wins and just one loss.
West Ham 0-1 Tottenham
Mauricio Pochettino’s debut in the Spurs dugout was a successful one. Although Spurs were far from their best, and had their fair share of luck throughout the game, the Lilywhites still managed to pick up all three points at Upton Park.
West Ham missed a penalty in the first half as Kyle Naughton was sent off for handball on the line, but Eric Dier was the man of the moment as he rounded the keeper to slot the ball into the back of the net deep into stoppage time to claim a huge win over one of our London rivals.
AEL Limossol 1-2 Tottenham
Pochettino made it two wins in two in all competitions winning his first match in the Europa League as Spurs came from behind to win away at AEL Limossol in the first leg of the Europa League Qualifying round.
After falling behind early on in the piece, Roberto Soldado scored a wonderful volley followed by a goal from Harry Kane turned the tie on its head within six second half minutes as Spurs took a 2-1 lead back home.
Tottenham 4-0 QPR
Many call this one of the best performances of the season at Spurs as they brushed aside QPR at White Hart Lane. Eric Dier continued his dream start at Tottenham with his second goal in two Premier League games. Nacer Chadli netted a brace, and Emmanuel Adebayor managed to get himself on the scoresheet.
The third goal was the highlight for Spurs as they put together a fantastic 48 pass move before Erik Lamela cut the ball back before Nacer Chadli headed into the back of the net. Spurs were top of the table after two week as a result.
Tottenham 3-0 AEL Limossol (Agg: 5-1)
A convincing win at The Lane. What better way to prepare for a big clash with Liverpool the following Sunday. Harry Kane, Andros Townsend and a rare goal from Paulinho helped Tottenham to a 5-1 win aggregate win over AEL Limossol.
Despite missing an early first half penalty, Harry Kane bounced back to score the opener, and his second in as many games in the Europa League as Spurs progressed to the group stages of Europe’s secondary competition.
Tottenham 0-3 Liverpool
There was much optimism heading into the first big match of the season for Mauricio Pochettino and his Tottenham side. However, after a bright start in the first five minutes, Liverpool took the lead and went on to secure a 3-0 victory at White Hart Lane.
The performance was shambolic in places, and was incredibly frustrating to watch, as Pocehttino fell to his first defeat in the Tottenham hotseat. This is how the Premier League table stood after August.
The honeymoon period for Pochettino was now over, and a disappointing month was to follow after a solid August. September had just one win in all competitions, but a North London derby win just eluded us, after we took the lead at the Emirates.
Sunderland 2-2 Tottenham:
Two goals right at the start of each half was not enough to take all three points back home at we drew 2-2 with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. Nacer Chadli gave us an early lead before Adam Johnson hit back just a few minutes later.
Christian Eriksen fired us back into the lead three minutes into the second period, but a Sunderland free-kick unfortunately rebounded off Harry Kane and into the back of the net. It was a game that could have been won, and will be seen as two points dropped rather than a point gained.
Partizan Belgrade 0-0 Tottenham
This was a match that we should really be winning, whether we are home or away, regardless of the pitch or anything else, with the quality of the players at Spurs, we should be beating these sort of teams convincingly.
We failed to find a way through as Federico Fazio made his Tottenham debut, keeping a clean sheet in the progress. However, it was a disappointing European night for us.
Tottenham 0-1 West Brom
Despite having 62% of the ball, we still fell to a pretty crushing 0-1 defeat at home to West Brom, and rather surprisingly had more shots on goal than us as a winless September carried on.
James Morrison fired in a second half header to condemn us to defeat at White Hart Lane, and it was rather characteristic of Tottenham over the last few years, because at the time, West Brom were in huge trouble under the management of Alan Irvine.
Tottenham 3-1 Nottingham Forest
We came from behind to progress to the next round of the Capital One Cup, with a 3-1 win over Nottingham Forest. Jorge Grant put the visitors into the lead before Ryan Mason, Roberto Soldado and Harry Kane put us into the next round.
This game marked the emergence of young midfielder Ryan Mason, as he scored a wonderful thirty yard goal to put us level on the night. However, it was slightly worrying that it took a Forest goal to get us going.
Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham
This was the game that Nacer Chadli silenced the crowd in the Emirates Stadium, well almost silenced, as the cheers rang out from the away end when the Belgian fired Spurs into the lead in the North London derby.
Unfortunately, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain would level things up as the first derby of the season ended in a draw, but we defended quite well as we comfortably dealt with the threat of the Arsenal attack. This is how the table stood after September.
