Mauricio Pochettino begins his first campaign in charge of Tottenham this weekend. What might be worrying the Argentine ahead of his team's opening game with West Ham United?

Mauricio Pochettino's first pre-season in charge of Tottenham Hotspur has gone relatively smoothly. His team have gone unbeaten, and looked in decent shape doing so.

"The team is showing a lot of energy," Pochettino told his club's official website after a 2-1 win over Schalke last Saturday he deemed satisfactory. "This is our style, our philosophy and now we have a week to go until the start of the season."

The countdown to the Premier League beginning is a little less than that now, of course.

Pochettino should be encouraged by the efforts and burgeoning form of one of the Premier League's stronger squads. Still, there are almost certainly a few things that will be causing the new Tottenham boss some concern.
