Barnsley need to be ready: The quality Spurs XI that Heckingbottom's side are likely to face tonight

Mauricio Pochettino claims it would be a mistake for Tottenham to win a domestic cup this season at the expense of their form in the Champions League and Premier League.

Arsenal have won the past three out of four FA Cup trophies, but the Argentine reminded Gooners that Wigan also won the trophy in 2013 and they now reside in League One.

Both came in the League Cup, in 1999 and 2008, with Spurs beginning a fresh tilt at the tournament tonight, when they host Championship strugglers Barnsley in the third round.

But Llorente believes in their chances of success this season, particularly in light of their impressive 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League last week. "For me, that is the two big trophies". Then its up to the player, like always.

Despite transforming Spurs into Premier League title-challengers, Pochettino has yet to add any silverware to the north London club's trophy cabinet during his tenure, which is now in its fourth campaign.

While it's a no brainer that the Premier League or the Champions League are more prestigious trophies than the Carabao Cup, many Spurs fans would welcome the trophy with open arms.

Given his focus on Tottenham's Premier League and Champions League campaigns, Pochettino has confirmed he intends to shuffle his pack for the showdown with Barnsley, who are now 20th in the second tier. Where is Wigan today, with all my respect?

Midfield: Pochettino has confirmed that Harry Winks will start his first game of the season after recently recovering from injury while youngster Tashan Oakley-Boothe is also expected to be involved. "I think we can get a lot [of trophies] this year but we have to improve, we have to work hard".

Tottenham Hotspur will not be handing Marcus Edwards his first senior start when they play Barnsley in the Carabao Cup, according to journalist Alasdair Gold.

"Maybe to give the possibility to play for a player that doesn't play too much I think it's a good possibility to see them and try to give the possibility to maybe fight to be in the starting XI more regularly".
