Pochettino: Premier League more important than FA Cup

Share

Swansea manager Carlos Carvalhal has piled the pressure on FA Cup visitors Tottenham by claiming it will "feel like the end of the world" if they lose their quarter-final tie. Simply put, they will deserve the accolades based on merit, not because they splashed out hundreds of millions of pounds to make it happen. Their need to re-focus their aims and the FA Cup will become one of their priorities for the rest of the campaign. "I don't understand why people still criticise him".

Third-tier Wigan Athletic, the unlikely spanner in the spokes of Manchester City's bid for a quadruple, welcome top-flight strugglers Southampton who will have new manager Mark Hughes, hired to save them from relegation, in the dugout for the first time.

The gaffer says Dele Alli, Son Heung-Min, Erik Lamela, Fernando Llorente and Lucas Moura can all play the No. 9 role, but believes it's more important for those he selects to fill the space efficiently and adapt to Spurs' alternative solutions. Yes, of course. We want always more.

The list of accolades included the Chuck Bednarik Award, the SEC Defensive Player of the Year and an All-American honor. In 2017, Mathieu played in all 16 regular-season games and recorded 70 tackles and two interceptions.

That rules him out of the FA Cup quarter-final against Swansea and up to five league matches. "Take Leicester - all that they enjoyed was the process".

Chris Hughton's Brighton side will be tricky opponents though, having made a good fist of their first season of Premier League football, sitting 11th in the table.

'You will be in the history but you can not live in the past. "As long as your main focus is football, then that's all you need to think about", he told the UK Mirror. "If not, all that happiness will transform into sadness".

Corbyn added that Labour did not support Putin and that Russian Federation should be held to account if it was behind the attack. Any boycott of the soccer World Cup, which Russian Federation hosts this summer, is not an immediate priority, she said.

"We were very lucky", said Pochettino, whose team have beaten Wimbledon, Newport and Rochdale en route to the quarterfinals.

"He is progressing and [that is] something crucial in our team, he could not play without it". I will be looking to back Swansea on the Asian Handicap +1 & +1.25 at anything better than [2.0], meaning the visitors would have to win by two goals to lose.

The 21-year-old midfielder has broke onto the scene for club and country following his transfer from MK Dons in 2015, and continues to be linked with a mega-money switch to Real Madrid.

Economy Watch: Retail Sales Slightly Down in February
February core sales (excluding automobiles, gasoline, building materials and food services) rose 0.1% from January's flat result. The economy added 313,000 jobs in February, giving analysts confidence that retail sales could rebound as soon as April.

"We're happy because he's so positive and when you see a positive player it helps us too, to believe he can be ready again to compete". "We have one trophy to chase and that is the FA Cup", he said. "It's completely different. There are competitions that if you win, fantastic but if but if you don't win, nothing changes".
