Pochettino: It's Eriksen's right to do what he wants

"With two or three Carabao Cups or FA Cups, if you don't finish how we have finished in the last three seasons and win the FA Cup, I don't know if Daniel would have too much patience with me or is very nice to say "OK you're 10th in the PL" and give you a new contract".

Christian Eriksen is happy at Tottenham but it is his right to decide whether or not he stays at the club, according to Mauricio Pochettino.

George Marsh made his senior debut for Tottenham on Friday night in the FA Cup third round - and some of the club's supporters on Twitter were impressed by his cameo appearance.

Spurs' only third round exit since the 2005/2006 campaign came five years ago when they lost 2-0 to rivals Arsenal at The Emirates Stadium.

A hat-trick from Fernando Llorente, two from Serge Aurier and an additional goal from Son Heung-Min saw Spurs catapult into an emphatic 6-0 lead, as the headed in the final 15 minutes of the match, but Pochettino elected to take off Llorente and opted to put on his star man Kane.

Although Spurs are pushing to compete on all fronts, he has yet to win a trophy since heading to England and he may feel a move to Spain or elsewhere in Europe offers him a better chance of honours, following the examples of Gareth Bale and Luka Modric.

"But always I told you, the club need to first of all be consistent in the top four and then think about challenging for trophies".

"But that doesn't mean that we are not focused on trying to win against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup or in the FA Cup".

"There are a lot of examples". Wigan won the FA Cup and they are in the Championship. "But in our project at Tottenham we are completely different. we have bigger things than to focus only to win a trophy", Pochettino added.
