Arsenal Fan Has His Say On Spurs Ahead Of The Carabao Cup Clash

With everyone full of praise for Mauricio Pochettino and his 3rd placed Tottenham team who are through to the knockout round of the Champions League and the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup against the Gunners at the Emirates on Wednesday night, Arsenal fan Joey from CheekySport still thinks Spurs need to invest in the team in they hope to have a successful season.

It will be interesting to see which manager chooses the stronger line-up for the Carabao Cup tie. You could say winning the Carabao Cup would be an easy trophy for the winner but they are still going to likely beat Manchester City or Chelsea to win the trophy.

Mauricio Pochettino was only saying today that he feels no pressure to win a trophy as success at Spurs is measured differently as the club finishing in the top 4 over the past few seasons and advancing in the Champions League are clear signs of success and progress.

It is hard to argue with the record of Spurs since Pochettino took over as Spurs manager in May 2014, the club has won 333 points no other manager has won more. Unai Emery would probably love to have that record after 4 and a half seasons in charge at the Emirates.

Our man Joel may have a good point though as without Harry Kane Spurs would suffer but with the form of Son and Lucas Moura perhaps his absence would not be missed as much as previously though surely they could do with adding to their squad given their injuries to Moussa Dembele and Kieran Trippier amongst others. Kane has not played in the Carabao Cup yet this season so if he plays against the Gunners it will be an interesting barometer of how serious Pochettino is about the competition.

Arsenal have injuries of their own and it will be interesting to find out the various selections Emery makes likes does Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang start with Lacazette or will it just be the Frenchman?

Arsenal too will be looking in the January window but not to make any major deals as they did last year when they signed Auba and sold Olivier Giroud to Chelsea. Unai Emery has spoken of looking to see what can be done but of no major signings being made.
