As impressive as Antonio Conte’s Chelsea have been this season, Tottenham Hotspur on their part have also been just as equally impressive as their London counterparts.
The appointment of Argentine manager Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham has seen the North London club undergo a drastic transformation from a side loitering around the top six to genuine title contenders in the last two seasons.
Even more impressive has been the emergence of young English talent under the tutelage of Pochettino.
With such good work being done at Spurs, it did come as a surprise to many a Tottenham fans when their manager was overlooked for the Manager of the year by Premier League great Alan Shearer.
Shearer, speaking on MOTD made a rather surprise statement when he picked out Antonio Conte, Sean Dyche and Eddie Howe as contenders for the manager of the year award.
While not disregarding the achievements of the aforementioned trio, the omission of Pochettino did certainly raise eyebrows with Tottenham fans understandably voicing their concerns on social media.
Check out the best reactions from Spurs fans below:

@RickSpur I think we all know Shearer’s views on Spurs. No wonder he’s not a manager.
