Loads of Tottenham fans have been discussing tonight’s League Cup clash, and they want Mauricio Pochettino to go all out to win the competition.
Domestic cups have taken a back seat amongst England’s elite in recent years, as the money involved in Champions League qualification makes league form the absolute top priority.
This usually means plenty of rotation for the early rounds, perhaps offering young players like Luke Amos and Oliver Skipp the chance to impress.
Tottenham fans are eyeing up the Carabao Cup as a first trophy for Pochettino though, after Manchester United were eliminated on Tuesday.

Jose Mourinho’s side were quite simply outclassed by Frank Lampard’s Derby County, and Chelsea’s visit to Liverpool means at least two of the “big six” will be out of the running by tonight.
Spurs have been so close to grabbing the FA Cup with Pochettino at the helm, but the young Argentine is still seeking his first major trophy.
The shock news from Old Trafford means one less favourite for Tottenham to compete with, and fans are calling for a near-full strength team against Watford tonight.

If you want to win it, why risk rotation. Pick strongest team and rotate v HUD! ? “must win a trophy”. If so, it’s our most important game so far this season ?

Agree. We’ve spent too much time disrespecting cups that could’ve put ‘trophy’ chat to bed. Including the Europa league. Such a shame. Chance of winning the league is zip. Win something.

Agree. But say that every year about cups & we never do. Are we going to win Prem or CL? I’d say unlikely so domestic cups should be high priority.
