Where should Tottenham’s priorities lie?

Tottenham Hotspur are still fighting on four fronts for the moment this season, but with four fixtures in eight days this week, where should their true priorities lie?

Spurs are still in the Premier League, Champions League, League Cup and FA Cup this season, and will be dying to get their hands on a trophy.

However, they may have to pick and choose their battles, especially this week, as fixture pile ups mean squad rotations.

Obviously the Premier League is always going to be a top priority, as it should be, but which of the others should come next?

Tottenham are looking in a pretty dire situation in the Champions League, and Pochettino may be tempted to give up on it altogether in order to concentrate on more realistic hopes.

However, I would argue that Europe’s top competition is the pinnacle we fight to qualify for every season, so we shouldn’t be so quick to throw it away.

Others have qualified from our position before, so we should fight until the end if they is any hope of survival, look at Real Madrid last season.

Also, I am of the opinion that the Europa League would be a good thing this season.

Things are tight in the Prem, and the Europa could be both our main chance of Champions League qualification and a major trophy, you never know.

I would put the Carabao Cup at the bottom of my list for this week, purely due to the enormity of the other two competitions.

However, I would utilise the big players coming back from injury and play them in the match to both gain fitness and give experience and class to the side.

If we can stumble our way to the quarters of the cup, we can give it a real go, just for a taste of some silverware.

Luckily the FA Cup doesn’t roll around until a bit later, but I would take a similar attitude to the League Cup.

Rest some players, but still throw in a good mix of first team talent. If you make it past the first few rounds, then give it a real go.

What do you think? What competitions would you prioritise?
