Spurs Have Been Knocked Out Of Two Cups In The Same Week

Spurs Have Been Knocked Out Of Two Cups In The Same Week

It's safe to say that Tottenham Hotspur and their fans have had a very, very rough week.

Firstly, Chelsea defeated Spurs in the second leg of their EFL Cup semi-final clash, leaving Mauricio Pochettino to miss out on the chance of securing his first trophy with the club.

Fast-forward to today and the Spurs boss has been handed another blow in his quest of winning a trophy this season.

Crystal Palace defeated the London club 2-0 and knocked them out of the FA Cup.

Connor Wickham opened the scoring for Roy Hodgson's men in the first half, with Andros Townsend doubling their lead after converting from the spot kick.

Spurs' only hope of securing silverware is either winning the Premier League or Champions League -- and both of those are no easy tasks.

Meanwhile, Spurs are third in the Premier League and are five points behind second-place Manchester City and nine points behind league leaders Liverpool.

Despite Spurs' failure to win any trophies under Pochettino (so far, of course), the 46-year-old Argentine has defended his record at the club.

"Tottenham, no history of winning," he said (via the Daily Telegraph).

"Our glory, I watch the video about the glory, it's with [Bill] Nicholson. It's black and white and I watch it nearly every week.

"To create again that feeling you need time. Four years, five years, that's nothing in the history of the club."






Where will Spurs finish in the Premier League this season?

Let us know in the comments.
