Ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s FA Cup fifth-round clash against Everton tonight, Davinson Sanchez has admitted that he and his teammates want to give it a real go in all three cup competitions this season.

Tottenham’s form in the Premier League has plummeted over the last couple of months and the North Londoners now have a lot of work to do to get back into the top four.

However, Jose Mourinho’s men are still going strong in all three cup competitions, having already booked their place in the Carabao Cup final and the knockout stages of the Europa League.

A win at Goodison Park this evening would see Spurs book their place in the quarter-final of the FA Cup and Sanchez admitted that it is not a match that the players are taking lightly.

The Colombian revealed that he and his teammates are keen to get their hands on silverware and that there is a belief within the changing room that they can achieve big things in the cups this season.

Sanchez told Football.London: “It’s an exciting challenge for us. It’s my fourth year here and I have been a lot of the time in a good position, a high position in the league but now we have a chance to reach another final.

“We have big games in the Premier League and every competition is now a big challenge for us.

“We want to beat Everton to try to keep going in the FA Cup then of course in the Europa League which is another competition for us.

“Then of course we are also in the Carabao Cup final, we are going to try go far in the Europa League and keep going well this season.

“It’s important we go step-by-step and I think we can have a good season. we’ve got a lot of things to do but there can be no more excuses for us not to keep pushing.

“All of the chances that we have, we have a lot of internationals to keep helping us this season.”

Spurs Web Opinion

For this season to be considered a success, we have to win at least one trophy and finish in the top four. In a strange way, the fact that we are now well and truly out of the title race can potentially help us in the other competitions as it sharpens our focus. Hopefully, the team puts their recent form in the Premier League behind them and put in a good performance at Goodison Park tomorrow.
