Why take the risk of losing a key player through injury for an away first leg? Especially when we've got Palace on Sunday and then the return leg on Wednesday, Pep was just managing the team as best as he could in my opinion and I thought he did OK.
KdB, Sane and Barnardo have all now had a decent rest, for the next two pivotal must win games.
Problem being he will now prioritise the CL game and palace will become a 50/50 game on the back of that.
Spurs are not a great side. They are in poor form and we have missed a great opportunity tonight to put this to bed. We were way too negative.
Maybe we just aren’t cut out for this cup. We
Just don’t seem to learn.
