Tottenham supporters saw one chance of a trip to Wembley evaporate at the weekend with a surprise home defeat to Leicester City in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
But Mauricio Pochettino’s side can cheer the supporters up by ensuring they hang onto their 1-0 first leg lead when they travel to Bramall Lane tomorrow night for the second leg of the Capital One Cup semi-final against Sheffield United.
Whilst silverware in Pochettino’s first season would be quite an achievement, at the risk of sounding like Arsene Wenger, the top four should be considered the priority for Tottenham and they are definitely in with a good shout.
An excellent Christmas period and the goalscoring form of Harry Kane has seen Spurs sneak to within three points of the top four.
But Tottenham’s squad is not as deep as the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and even Liverpool behind them in eighth place whilst Southampton are showing no signs of halting their pursuit.
Pochettino could certainly do with a couple of new additions before the close of the deadline. Here we have identified five targets who could yet make a last minute switch.
