Tottenham assistant manager Cristian Stellini says they’re serious about the FA Cup this season.
Spurs meet Sheffield United in the sixth round tonight.
“It’s important to bring the energy we used on the pitch in the last two matches at home now that we are away in another stadium,” Stellini told SPURSPLAY after training on Tuesday.
“We know very well that at Sheffield United it will not be easy because the atmosphere in the stadium is tough, but we want to perform well.
“It’s a type of competition that we take very seriously so it will be an important game for the reason that the FA Cup is an important target for us and also because we are building momentum. We want to continue with this momentum, we want to continue to play well, to win games and if you win games, there arrives a time where you can win something.”
Stellini is maintaining a confident approach as they look to take another step towards lifting a trophy Spurs haven’t won since 1991.
“We have to look at the teams that are in the last 16 – we have to believe that we can do it,” he said. “We have to win the next game to progress and then we will see what happens in the future. The players are feeling good, the team is ready, we will make some changes like normal when you play three matches in a week but like every time, we will pick the best team to try to win the game.”
