Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino targets League Cup success

Mauricio Pochettino is eyeing his first silverware as Tottenham Hotspur manager.

The Argentina boss has targeted winning the League Cup this season and is quoted as saying by Sports Mole: ‘Getting into the quarter-final was the objective, so we are happy.

‘All potential trophies are realistic for us [to win]. We played very well and created a lot of chances. After Sunday it was difficult as we played well but didn't make the chances’.

Pochettino was speaking following Tottenham’s 2-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion in the fourth round of the League Cup on Wednesday.

Second-half goals from Erik Lamela and Harry Kane proved to be enough for Spurs to pick up the win at White Hart Lane and secure a place in the quarter-finals of the competition.

Tottenham will take on Newcastle United at home in December for a place in the semi-finals.
