Tottenham Hotspur media round-up: Scholes highlights biggest challenge for Spurs this weekend

White Hart Lane

A round up of news stories this morning related to Tottenham Hotspur.

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has written in the Independent that the main issue for Tottenham this weekend is whether they can handle the pressure.

Spurs will need a big performance against Chelsea this Sunday to win the first piece of available silverware this season.

“Do they have the courage to win a one-off match? Quite simply, do they have the balls to take risks? – The question marks are more about Tottenham,” wrote Scholes.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has been quoted by Goal talking about the key moment against Fiorentina last night.

Tottenham went out of the Europa League after a 2-0 defeat in Italy ahead of the League Cup final this weekend against Chelsea.

Pochettino feels the key during the match was a bad miss by striker Roberto Soldado.

“We are all disappointed, the player, too - It is true that it was key, this action,” said the boss.

The Daily Mirror has reported that Hugo Lloris is still uncertain over whether he will start the League Cup final this weekend.

The Frenchman has reportedly asked Pochettino to play, but deputy Michel Vorm has done a good job in the earlier rounds of the competition.

Lloris has arguably been the club’s most consistent player so far this season.
