Mauricio Pochettino and Jose Mourinho never done it against Watford, but Nuno did.

Following Tottenham’s 1-0 triumph over Watford, Nuno Espirito Santo has carved his name into the history books.

Nuno Espirito Santo made history by becoming the first Tottenham manager to win his first three league games in charge since 1949. Spurs won 1-0 over Watford thanks to a Son Heung-min goal three minutes before halftime.

Spurs won their third league game in a row, maintaining their perfect record in the Premier League this season.

Spurs will go into the international break on top of the standings, two points ahead of the rest of the pack.

Spurs are also yet to surrender a goal this season, with Davinson Sanchez and Eric Dier shining in their most recent victory.

Since stating that he will not be leaving the club this summer, captain Harry Kane has started his first league game.

Nuno has urged Tottenham fans to ignore the standings, despite the fact that Spurs are now in first place and Arsenal are in last place.

Manchester City had been linked with a deal for the striker throughout the summer, but the 28-year-old last week declared his devotion to Spurs.

Nuno does not want to get ahead of himself, despite becoming the first Spurs manager to win his opening three league games since Arthur Rowe in 1949.

“There is no such thing as perfection; we are constantly striving to improve,” Nuno stated. “In terms of consistency and organization, we played well today. We need to be more clinical; we had plenty of opportunities to get a better score, but the boys put in a lot of effort. The team’s dynamic is positive.

“We’ve made enough threats. Solid possession, good lines, perhaps a little more dynamic on the movements to open the holes we needed, but overall, really well done.

“Watford were extremely well-organized and didn’t allow for too many open places. But we need to be more dynamic and mobile via our front lines, which is something we need to work on. We’ll watch the game and talk to the lads.”

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has also urged officials to resolve the South American international duty issue, which will see Christian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso join the Argentine national team.

Despite Premier League teams unanimously voting not to release players scheduled to travel to red-list nations to play international matches, the duo are prepared to defy orders and travel to South America. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
