And British record signing Moises Caicedo got off to the worst possible start having conceded a penalty less than 20 minutes into his debut.
However, Pochettino will be confident that his men can get their first win of the season against a Luton side who were dismantled by Brighton on the opening weekend.
But the Hatters’ stadium refurbishment has given them the advantage of more rest time than the Blues.
