Mudryk found the net in the 3-2 victory over Newcastle on Monday night.

When queried about the possibility of giving Mudryk more starts, Mauricio Pochettino said: “It was a very good goal, he scored a really good goal and that is what we expect from a player that came from the bench, an impact.

“Then it’s about to compete with different players in the position he can play and then deserve to play.

“It’s more of a question for him than for me.”

On the presence of Todd Boehly being at the game, Pochettino added: “Yes, he came with his son, and I think Behdad [Eghbali]. All of the owners were there. Yes, it was a nice chat, only a few minutes because I needed to come for the interview and the press conference. Yes, it was good, the relationship is good.”
