"I think that the team is so strong, the physical condition is so strong, mental and of course in the way that we play is so clear the philosophy and everything always helps the team and the players to perform in the way that we want".

Pochettino said he was due to speak to Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy on Thursday afternoon, when he admitted he would press for a solution to be found. "I think his mentality is fantastic". "I think it's a big risk to play in a pitch like this".

Pochettino confirmed that he was anxious about the pitch, which he said "was not in a condition to play football". He had the chance to score but you know now we have 24 players and it will be tough to find a place in the starting XI for everyone. No, I think Rochdale can not play football there, too.

But Spurs boss Pochettino says players from both teams will be at risk.

If the FA agree with Pochettino's analysis, Tottenham could push for the tie to played at an alternative venue.

Rochdale chief executive Russ Green, meanwhile, added: "We didn't endanger anybody's careers and I don't care if it's a Tottenham player or a Millwall player - they are still professional footballers". "Maybe the FA need to try to take a very good decision for football".

A statement from the Hornets read: "Rochdale AFC have installed a dome-type pitch cover to dry the surface out to allow them to access to carry out vital drainage repairs which will involve a "drill and fill" technique to drain surface water".


Tottenham are fifth in the Premier League table with 49 points from 26 matches and take on sixth-placed north London rivals Arsenal on Saturday.

Tottenham are unbeaten in 11 games, and victory at Wembley this weekend would leave Arsenal with a mountain to climb to finish in the top four.

"Yes, I believe [we can finish second]".

"The gap is not massive but it will be tough".

Toby Alderweireld could start against Arsenal after playing 90 minutes against Newport, which was his first appearance since November 1.

Pochettino made 10 changes following Sunday's draw at Liverpool and feels his team has plenty of competition for places heading into the final months of the season.

"To be playing, for me, is so important because I need to feel the game".
