Spurs cruised to a 7-0 away victory against League Two Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park and there were plenty of rotations within the squad by manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Spurs occupy the third position in the premier league table with 48 points from 21 games. "Of course I accept the different opinions, but I'm not sure whether winning the Carabao Cup or FA Cup is going to change the character of the club".
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino says it would be "fantastic" if Christian Eriksen signed a new deal, but admits he is unsure whether the midfielder will commit his future to the club. I think I was sacked a few years ago.
"You would like this player with you but he has every right to do what he wants", said Pochettino before Friday's FA Cup third-round tie at League Two Tranmere.
Fernando Llorente has scored his second hat-trick for Spurs, with both coming in his last two starts in The FA Cup (the first against was against Rochdale in February 2018).

The forward scored his 14th goal of the season before setting up Virgil van Dijk's clincher in the second half at Molineux. There were chances for both teams in the first half, we could have done better in the final third and with final decisions.
"Eriksen is important to Tottenham".
London-based clubs are having problems getting their star players to renew their contracts amid the threat of more appetizing offers from Europe's top sides.
Revenue from regular Champions League qualification is critical for Spurs' financial stability as they prepare to move to their new 62,000-seater stadium. "Of course we want to win a trophy but that doesn't mean that it is going to put Tottenham on a different level. But you need a lot of coincidences to win sometimes".
"If my ambition in Tottenham is only win the Carabao Cup or FA Cup, with all the respect for that, I think my ambition does not match the ambition of a club like Tottenham".
