Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino needs to start picking Hugo Lloris ahead of Michel Vorm in the FA Cup from now on.
Vorm has been Spurs’ cup goalkeeper so far this season, but Pochettino should drop him from now on.
Although that may seem like a harsh decision, as Vorm was in impressive form as Spurs got past Swansea yesterday, it is the sort of ruthlessness that the Argentine needs to show, if he is to deliver Tottenham’s first trophy for a decade.
Spurs have gone 10 years without a trophy, but they have a real chance to win the FA Cup this season.
Tottenham are arguably the most in-form team left in the competition, and they have the advantage of having played at Wembley all campaign.
With the £5 million signing from Swansea in goal, there is not quite the same assurance defensively as Lloris commands though.
Lloris is one of the best goalkeepers in the world, and with the stakes rising, Spurs need all their key players on the pitch in the competition.
Vorm is an excellent back-up goalkeeper, but the pressure is on Spurs to win a trophy.
And it is time that Pochettino starts picking Lloris to ensure he gives Tottenham the best chance possible of lifting silverware in May.
