Pochettino underwhelmed by Tottenham fringe players

Adebayo Akinfenwa

You know we are a team that is involved in different competitions and I think that if you sign for Tottenham, you are in the squad for Tottenham.

"As a manager you can not ask for any more from your players".

But at the end of a ridiculous cup tie there was heartbreak for Wycombe Wanderers despite a fantastic display.

"We always believe and we were a little bit lucky to go to the next round". Spurs enjoyed 76% possession in the match, but were carved open defensively on numerous occasions by a Wycombe side that played physically and attempted to hit back on the counterattack.

Spurs centre backs Kevin Wimmer and Cameron Carter-Vickers looked uncomfortable dealing with bulky striker Ankinfenwa all afternoon and allowed him to set Sam Wood racing into the area.

And that miss proved costly as Josh Onomah half-cleared a corner from the right and the ball dropped to Hayes, who thumped home a first-time left-footed volley. Spurs had already used all three of their substitutions and were forced to complete the comeback while down to ten men.

It is necessary to stand up to Moscow because of its actions in the ongoing Syrian civil war, she said, according to Reuters . The daughter of Indian immigrants will be one of the few women and minorities in Trump's Cabinet.

The lower league opposition can go home with their heads held high after giving Mauricio Pochettino's players a real scare - they lead the Premiership high flyers by two goals for almost an hour, and then looked like they had won it when they scored a third after Spurs had fought back with just six minutes remaining.

Jan Vertonghen on the other hand picked up an ankle ligament injury in Tottenham's 4-0 win over West Bromich Albion but Pochettino comment that the defender is doing "much better" and it looks as though he will be sideline for only another 3-4 weeks.

Davies scored for Spurs in the last round of the FA Cup against Aston Villa, but he failed to impress here. "We hope it's not a big issue", the Spurs boss said. It's the most special competition in the world.

"Full credit to Wycombe they played very well".

And it created quite possibly one of the best matches in the FA Cup's fourth round this season - barring any unforeseen 7-6 wins after 100 minutes (that's 10 minutes of stoppage time) in the remaining matches left to be played.
