Tottenham Hotspur morning round-up: Poch on Blades fans, Clough explains advantage

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

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has been quoted by ESPN suggesting he’s not bothered by the potential atmosphere at Sheffield United this evening.

Spurs go into the second leg of the semi-final with a 1-0 lead, looking to seal their place in the final at Wembley alongside Chelsea.

The boss claims the worst fans he has ever encountered are South Americans, with his roots in Argentina.

Sheffield United boss Nigel Clough believes his side’s advantage will be Tottenham not taking the game seriously.

He’s been quoted by the Daily Mail suggesting Tottenham’s Premier League based stars don’t feel the same about the League Cup as his players.

However, it’s Tottenham’s best chance of winning some silverware this season, which is a huge incentive for the club.

The Tottenham Hotspur website has published a report, which details Nabil Bentaleb’s goal for Algeria in the African Cup of Nations game over Senegal.

Bentaleb’s Tottenham return has been delayed with Algeria taking a place in the last eight of the competition as a result.
