Tottenham manager Pochettino: I'd be sacked if I prioritised FA Cup

Christian Eriksen

"Speaking after his side's 7-0 win over Tranmere in the FA Cup, Pochettino said: "[It will be] hard.

Spurs have not won the top-flight title since 1961 and their last trophy was the 2008 League Cup but Pochettino insists only Premier League or Champions League trophies will take the club to the next level. 'Oh the manager disrespects the Carabao Cup or FA Cup.' No, it is the opposite.

"If you don't finish how we have finished in the last three seasons and (win) the FA Cup, I don't know if Daniel (Levy, chairman) would have too much patience with me or is very nice to say, "OK you're 10th in the Premier League" and give you a new contract".

The only men that keep their place are Dele Alli, Heung-min Son and Davinson Saánchez.

It was quite the performance from a Tottenham side showing eight changes from the midweek win at Cardiff.

Tottenham then turned the screw after Harvey Gilmour had an attempt to half the deficit.

Cardiff City vs. Tottenham Hotspur - Football Match Report
We can't take anything for granted and do what we can do. "They deserve full credit". "The Wolves game was a kick up the bum for us".

Llorente tapped in from close range after being teed up by Son and Aurier fired home his side's third, finding a way through Davies and a covering defender on the line following a phenomenal touch from Son to play him in.

That 55th-minute effort was soon followed by another.

Ollie Banks stung the palms and Jake Caprice struck across the face of goal as Tranmere looked to get a consolation, but this was Tottenham's night.

Following a goalless opening 40 minutes at Prenton Park, Serge Aurier started the rout with a deflected shot and doubled his personal tally in a nine-minute period that saw Spurs blow away their opponents with three goals early in the second half.

Just 66 seconds later and the Spaniard secured the match ball, with Moura this time playing provider in front of the visiting fans.
