It would be "fantastic" if midfielder Christian Eriksen committed his long-term future to Tottenham, says manager Mauricio Pochettino.

"Eriksen is important to Tottenham".

Prior to this season, Tranmere Rovers have spent the last three years having to qualify for the first round proper during their time as a non-league club while tonight's opponents Tottenham Hotspur have reached the semi-finals of the competition in both of the last two campaigns.

"In some clubs, if you don't win a trophy, you fail". Swansea won the Carabao Cup when we arrived to Southampton and today they are in the second division.

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