Dele Alli insists Spurs are able to compete on four fronts

Tottenham are through to the fourth round of the FA Cup in style.

What could have been a tricky trip to a sold-out Prenton Park ended in the most comprehensive of away wins thanks to a devastating second-half display by Spurs.

There was a hint of controversy about the goal as television replays showed the ball was moving illegally when Son took the quick corner that led to Aurier's rocket.

Since joining Spurs from Ajax for £11.5m in 2013, the 26-year-old star has performed superbly in the Premier League.

Pochettino said: "It's true we're the team to beat".

Burley thinks they should go all out for the FA Cup, however, and said: "There are budgets to talk about, he hasn't got the biggest budget, they don't spend the most on wages, they didn't buy anyone in the summer". While the introduction of Kane could be seen as an unnecessary step, Pochettino suggested he did so to be fair to the Tranmere supporters who had turned out on a cold night.

"It's important for him to score and have 20 minutes playing football", the Spurs boss said.

"They're a fantastic team and maybe we just thought we would win the game [against Wolves], but you can't do that if you want to win things and be a top, top team".

The only negative for Spurs is the impending departure of Son after the club's Premier League fixture against Manchester United next Sunday.

"Respect the people, respect the opponent".

"If my ambition in Tottenham is only to win the Capital One Cup or FA Cup, with all the respect for that, I think my ambition does not match the ambition of a club like Tottenham".

"I think he's very good at that and as players we want to play every game anyway, we want to be in every competition so all we can do is make sure we recover properly after games, mentally and physically, make sure you prepare for every game and be ready to play. It's that we're a target for different reasons".

"It is hard in that division to see it".

The Ivory Coast global scored twice in the cup fixture and is now back after a groin injury, which is why fans should see the best of him moving forward if he stays.

Kane came on for hat-trick hero Llorente, who is the subject of speculation surrounding a January exit.

"Yes, it's a six-month contract with the club and we will see what happens".

"Nobody had to tell me I had loads of talented players [to inherit at United]". It's going to be a fantastic thing for us.
