nly five managers have managed a century of victories faster than the Argentine, who reached the milestone on Saturday

Mauricio Pochettino reached 100 Premier League wins as Tottenham manager in Saturday's 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town at Wembley.

Two goals from Son Heung-min secured all three points for the home side and moved them into third place in the table, a point above Liverpool, who face Newcastle United in their game in hand.

It was Spurs' third straight win in the Premier League, and marked 11 games unbeaten since folding to Manchester City shortly before Christmas.

The former Argentina international has now managed a century of wins in England's top flight in just 197 matches, which matches ex-Liverpool and Blackburn Rovers boss Kenny Dalglish's efforts.

In doing so, the manager enters an elite group of bosses who have managed the mark with such speed.

Only six managers reached the milestone in fewer games. Jose Mourinho leads the way, having won 100 of his first 142 matches, ahead of Alex Ferguson, who needed 162 contests to get a century of victories.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is next on the list (179 matches), ahead of Rafa Benitez (181) and Claudio Ranieri (187).
