The Spurs ended the streak of four straight games without a win in the Premier League on Saturday when they bagged as many as five goals in the thumping of Stoke City at Wembley.
They’ll have another opportunity for a similar confidence-boosting performance in mid-week as they host the recently-promoted Brighton & Hove Albion on Wednesday.
The mentioned win over the Potters did raise the spirits in Pochettino’s dressing room.
The Spurs are, however, still as low as sixth in the table ladder and they are desperate for points here against the relegation-threatened outfit.
The good news for the Argentine manager is Harry Kane’s brace. The English striker has thus taken his league tally to 12 goals in 15 appearances for the Spurs and he’ll obviously have a nice chance to add to this on Wednesday against the Seagulls.
Brighton & Hove Albion
Brighton’s form has encountered a major stumbling block in the recent weeks.
The team led by Chris Hughton lost back-to-back clashes to Liverpool and Huddersfield Town conceding as many as seven goals along the way.
Finding the back of the net has been the major issue for Brighton as they’ve bagged no more than a single goal in last four league outings.

It’s been 34 years since the two sides have last locked horns in a league clash. They are to play their 12th head to head encounter this Wednesday.
Tottenham have been much more successful as they’ve won eight and lost just two. The Spurs came on top in the early stages of the League Cup three years ago when they clinched a 2-0 victory at White Hart Lane.

Brighton’s defensive line has been anything but solid in the recent weeks and we can hardly expect anything else but a commanding display from Mauricio Pochettino’s men here.
