Pochettino questions Tottenham motivation after FA Cup escape

Spurs sit 71 places higher than Newport in the league pyramid but fell behind at Rodney Parade when Padraig Amond rose highest to head home Robbie Willmott's cross late in the first half.

All is not lost, though, with Tottenham securing a replay at Wembley thanks to their saviour, who has now scored 30 goals in as many appearance this season.

"The team didn't show that they really wanted to go to the next round of the FA Cup". "We all need to learn, to take the responsibility", he said.

Their pressure finally paid off in the 82nd minute when Heung-Min Son expertly used the outside of his boot to flick a corner on to an unmarked Kane at the back post, and this time the England worldwide made no mistake, bringing the score to 1-1 and earning his side another chance at qualifying for the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Pochettino made another switch, replacing Llorente with Dele Alli, as the game moved into its final half an hour with his side still trailing in Wales.

"I didn't say we weren't motivated, but not motivated in the same level as Newport". We showed the ambition and the decision to play.

Tottenham Hotspur were fortunate to not be on the receiving end of a humiliating shock Cup exit to the hands of Newport County on Saturday evening and fans took to Twitter to provide their honest reactions to the performance of some.

When pushed on signings in general, Pochettino added: "We have some options".

"I'm a little bit relieved - well a lot", he told reporters at his post-match presser.

"I could've been selfish, tried to be the hero and put a few more strikers on but I'd never try to jeopardise the finances of the club and I'm not selfish", he added. "But we'll see what happens in the last few days".

"It's incredible, I'm proud of everything we've achieved".

At 1-0 down, West Ham defender Arthur Masuaku was sent off four minutes into the second half for spitting at Nick Powell and faces a lengthy ban. But it's about in the next few days to see if we have some possibilities with some players. Kane went close with a header he could not steer home, and Son drew a good save from County goalkeeper Joe Day, but as the clock ticked down, there was a sense that this was heading towards one of the cup's greatest giant killing games. "We turnover £2.2 million ($3.1 million, 2.5 million euros) a year as a football club, but this (FA Cup) run will give us an excess of £700,000".
