Sherwood wants to take Spurs all the way to Wembley in his first few months in charge and despite already winning at Southampton and Manchester United as Tottenham boss, a win at Arsenal would top the lot.
The former Spurs midfielder has reenergised this Tottenham team and got them playing a different style of football than under Andre Villas Boas.
Despite growing up as an Arsenal fan, Sherwood would love nothing more than knocking the Gunners out of the FA Cup this lunchtime.
‘It’s huge, it’s our priority because it’s our next game, it would be the pinnacle of my short managerial career if we went to the Emirates and won and we were still in the hat.
‘We have great tradition and history and we want to show it respect. We would love to play a lower league team, but it’s Arsenal at the Emirates and we can’t wait.
‘It’s a huge competition; I played a few semi-finals but never won it. It would be fantastic to take Tottenham to the final.’
