Cape Town - Tottenham will reportedly give serious consideration to parting ways with Mauricio Pochettino if Spurs lose to West Ham after the international break.

The Argentinian has endured his toughest spell as Spurs manager, with the club languishing in the bottom half of the Premier League, and rumours of discord among members of the squad.

Tottenham have only managed 14 points from their opening 12 matches in the Premier League this season and currently sit in 14th place.

They were held at home to a confident Sheffield United side on Saturday and were perhaps lucky to take anything out of the game.

And now the Daily Telegraph claims that Pochettino is 'heading towards the point of no return' and that defeat in a 'make or break' match against West Ham on November 23 could 'prove decisive'.

A loss to one of their biggest rivals would 'raise serious questions for the Spurs' manager' with Tottenham failing to publicly back their manager.

And the report continues by saying Spurs' silence has 'only strengthened theories that a change is becoming inevitable'.
