Pochettino: It's Eriksen's right to do what he wants

Tottenham Hotspur's Fernando Llorente got a hat-trick as they chalked up their record competitive away win with the 7-0 thrashing of fourth-tier Tranmere Rovers in the opening game of the FA Cup third round at Prenton Park on Friday.

Son was one of those to retain their place and was denied one-one-one by goalkeeper Scott Davies inside seven minutes, with Lucas Moura fluffing his lines soon after. A superb ball from Dele Alli picked out Kane who then dinked the ball over the Tranmere goalkeeper. So although we have to be realistic and say our chances are small, there's certain things you can do to increase that, so we've spoken about that in the last couple of days.

Rovers began to commit more players going forward on the attack but they were finding it hard to get the better of a tight Spurs backline.

"We disappeared off the Football League radar for a wee while", the Scot said.

GOP civil war: RNC member rips Romney for 'political treachery'
Romney doesn't take the oath of office until Thursday, but he dominated much of the conversation online and on cable news. McDaniel wrote in a tweet Wednesday that her uncle's "attack" played into the hands of Democrats and the media.

Spurs' only third round exit since the 2005/2006 campaign came five years ago when they lost 2-0 to rivals Arsenal at The Emirates Stadium. The South Korean has now scored eight times in his last 12 appearances for Spurs in all competitions. They trail the leaders Liverpool by 6 points and are only two adrift of defending champions Manchester City.

"We know it's going to be tough, but this is football, it's the FA Cup".

Pochettino has led Spurs to three consecutive top-three finishes in the league, despite operating with a tight salary structure and transfer spending.

The reason why the decision was so weird to Tottenham fans is that Son Heung-Min, who often plays up front alongside Kane or as his replacement, is going to the Asia Cup on January 13. But in the end it's a negotiation and different parties have different interests.
