Harry Redknapp has played down Tottenham’s reputation of being FA Cup specialists.
Spurs take on Portsmouth in the FA Cup semi-final on Sunday and will be looking to book their place in the final for the first time since 1991 to set up a date against Chelsea or Aston Villa.
“They say that it’s a cup club but it’s nearly 20 years since they won,” Redknapp said. “I don’t know who’s expectations these are. What do people expect? Why are we expected to win it now?
“Who’s won the FA Cup outside the top four apart from Portsmouth in the last 15 years? Only one team has won it outside the top four in that time so I don’t know why we’re expected to win it.”
