Tottenham Hotspur are still fighting on three fronts this season under serial winner Jose Mourinho, but their hopes for a trophy seem to hinge on one competition.
Spurs were knocked out of the Carabao Cup in the third round against Colchester United, with Man City eventually lifting the trophy at the weekend.
In the Premier League, Spurs are well over 30 points behind Liverpool at the top and even a top-four finish seems to be slipping through their fingers.
Tottenham remain in the Champions League, but find themselves 1-0 down against RB Leipzig after the first match in their knockout tie, with the Germans taking an away goal.
This leaves the FA Cup as perhaps the Lilywhites’ last remaining realistic chance of taking home a trophy this season.
Spurs have not lifted a piece of silverware since 2008 when they beat Chelsea in the League Cup Final.
However, Mourinho insists that the season would not be a failure without a trophy, as he only joined midway through the campaign.
