A suave looking Mauricio Pochettino took to the White Hart Lane technical area for the first time as Tottenham manager on Saturday.

Tottenham Hotspur concluded their first pre-season campaign under Mauricio Pochettino with a 2-1 win over Schalke on Saturday.

Goals scored on both sides of half-time by Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado proved enough for the victory. Former Tottenham midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng scored Schalke's reply with just over 10 minutes left in the half.

Over the following few pages we take a look at what Pochettino will have learned from his side's performance and just how that might affect his thinking for the trip to West Ham United on opening day.
