Tottenham will struggle to stop Christian Eriksen from joining Barcelona says Ian McGarry

While that barren run may come to an end this year, as they prepare for an FA Cup visit to Tranmere ahead of an EFL Cup semi-final with Chelsea, the Argentine boss explained that trophies aren't as important as consistency in the Premier League.

"I'm not going to suffer for [the result]".

The manager's first memories of the famous cup competition stem back to when he was a child.

Pochettino appears to be a fan of the Argentinian and he is now establishing himself in the top flight, suggesting that a January move down to the second tier may be off the cards.

"With two or three Carabao Cups or FA Cups, if you don't finish how we have finished in the last three seasons and win the FA Cup, I don't know if Daniel would have too much patience with me or is very nice to say "OK you're 10th in the PL" and give you a new contract". But my interest is to try to enjoy the game. "I think my answer is so clear".

Despite the Saints sitting in the Premier League relegation places, they have picked up in recent weeks since the arrival of Ralph Hasenhüttl. Now, the Spurs regular has opened up on his plans in the summer and hinted that he may have considered dropping down to the Championship in the hunt for first team football. "Does he change a lot of players to protect that and keep players fresh or does he install a mentality of winning in the way they play and performance that he wants to carry through? ". He may go either way.

Bookmakers have placed Manchester United as favourites to sign Christian Eriksen from Tottenham after Mauricio Pochettino claimed he was unsure about the Dane's future, according to the Manchester Evening News. The squad, even though some people think it's big here, it's not so big certainly in particular areas.

"But I think we are in a good way".
