Tranmere Rovers vs. Tottenham Hotspur - Football Match Report

Adjust Comment Print

Mauricio Pochettino is untroubled by the prospect of Tottenham falling nine points behind Liverpool when the Premier League leaders visit Manchester City on Thursday.

"My ambition is to win the Champions League one day with Tottenham or the Premier League, " Pochettino explained according to UK Sun.

It has been 13 years since a lower division club have beaten Spurs in the third round of the FA Cup with Leicester City winning 3-2 back in January 2006. "I think my answer is so clear".


"What puts you in a different level is if you win the Premier League and you're capable of challenging every season for the Premier League, and if you play Champions League and you really believe and you're a real contender one day to win the Champions League".

Tranmere Rovers have met Tottenham Hotspur on eight previous occasions but they are yet to beat the eight-time FA Cup winners.

"It depends on many things in this business - different parties that have interests".


"Of course, Christian Eriksen is so important for us".

"We showed that attitude in the Carabao Cup and we had a great run in that".

"I think the people want trophies and (think) that it means you are very successful", he added. Swansea won the Carabao Cup when we arrived to Southampton and today they are in the second division.


Jurgen Klopp's men have the opportunity to land a major blow in the title race as they seek to condemn the champions to a fourth defeat in six top-flight fixtures. We may rest a few but the players are performing well anyway so it will be a balance of what I can do, what I think is best for us going forward but I certainly don't want to put out a team that I feel is not absolutely up for winning the game.
