...Coco. As the final Europa League group game came into town, Pochettino finally gave some of the regulars a day off, while the kids ran rings around Monaco to secure top spot.
...like. This Europa League campaign has been a bit hit and miss. Some glorious stuff, some lacklustre. Most of it edge of the seat, last second, so you just knew the only way it would go would be penalties.

...week. It seems the only way to get any life out of the striker. Super Pavlyuchenko scores a screamer in a less than convincing Spurs display against Rubin Kazan.
