Tottenham ease previous Newport into FA Cup fifth spherical

Tottenham ease previous Newport into FA Cup fifth spherical

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has backed Erik Lamela to reach "a higher level" than before his injury following his good performance against Newport County.

Will he manage to get the game moved to another location?

Pochettino spoke to Football.London after the game, and suggested that Llorente did miss his opportunity to find the net, but noted that it's tough for all players to nail down a first-team spot, and isn't anxious about one player.

Wenger was adamant that he would not actively encourage diving but said most attacking players would look to push the boundaries to gain an advantage.

"I am honest, always", said the Spurs boss. If you don't win, you should be anxious about the performance.

"It's not because we are Tottenham".

After being held to a replay by Newport County, Spurs beat their lower league rivals 2-0 at Wembley.

Goalkeeper Petr Cech is a doubt having been forced off in the win over Everton last week but Nacho Monreal should recover from illness in time to retain his place in defence. He has made 13 league appearances this season and two more in the FA Cup. If it is like what I saw in the pictures I don't think you can play football.

Rochdale CEO Russ Green wasn't impressed with complaints from the last round, saying, "We didn't endanger anybody's careers and I don't care if it's a Tottenham player or a Millwall player - they are still professional footballers".

He was reported on the BBC as saying: "I think the FA needs to assess the pitch and then to take a decision if it is good for the FA Cup, good for the players, for the team and players to play on this type of pitch". No, I think Rochdale can not play football there too.

"I don't know what happened with their pitch but it's true that the picture I have seen shows it's not a pitch in a condition to play football".

"Now we are 24 players and it will be tough to find a place in the starting XI for everyone, 24 players that fight to be on the starting XI every single game", he added. No, I think Rochdale can not play football there, too.

"I'm going to speak with the chairman and with the club, try to find a solution or to see what we can do", said Pochettino. "We are going to increase our level and in that very busy period we need all to focus on trying to give their best".
