Federico Fazio explains what Tottenham 'need' to do tomorrow night

Bentaleb, Fazio

Tottenham Hotspur defender Federico Fazio has called on the side to focus on the good things they did against Leicester City.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Federico Fazio has told the club’s website he feels it’s important the side focuses on the good things they did against Leicester City.

Spurs lost the FA Cup clash last weekend but Fazio has stressed the need for a positive mentality heading into the second leg of the League Cup game against Sheffield United tomorrow night.

“We were aggressive all together on the pitch, but some days you’re unlucky in some of your actions and we ended up losing,” said Fazio.

“Now we need to think about the next game at Sheffield United. We need to take some of the things that we did well against Leicester and improve on other elements.”

“It’s a very important match and we all really want to get to the final. We must improve on our performance from Saturday, fight for what we want.”

Tottenham have a slender lead heading into the game against the Blades and Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino will be keen for the team to withstand pressure and build on that advantage.

It won’t be easy as Sheffield United have home advantage and their fans are likely to pack out the ground, which could create a very hostile atmosphere for Tottenham’s players to experience.

Where Spurs need to improve based on the weekend is maintaining a strong level of concentration throughout the game.

Tottenham can’t lose their focus at any point because Nigel Clough’s side will be ready and willing to take advantage of any errors from the Spurs defence.

If Tottenham defend well, soak up the pressure Sheffield United pile on early and make the most of their chances, they should make it to Wembley safely.
