How serious are you of this competition?
Like all competitions, we take him very seriously. Of course, sometimes you can win and sometimes lose, but we are always serious and respect the competition.
You have chosen a strong team where Dele has 90 minutes?
Dele was injured and now he is fresh. He can handle his effort. Of course, with the result, it was better for us to give him more minutes in the game.
Did Harry want to play Kane?
It's important that he plays for 20 minutes and plays football. I think it was important for him and for the team to score an important victory and move on to the next stage of the FA Cup. It was an important game for the club. Being in four competitions is an important thing.
Even if you did not expect Serge Aurier to score two goals?
I think it was good for him. It is important that every player has the opportunity to score. If you are a full-back and you score points and you do not have the habit of scoring, it's always something special. I think he scored two points but I have to see the second one if he scored or not, I do not know. He has? Ok, good for Serge.
It's a sign of the Spurs' recklessness of using a player like Kane at 6-0.
It was respect, respect for the people, respect for the opponent. You will hardly have chances to see Harry Kane in a competition like the FA Cup. I think it was a great atmosphere. For various reasons, I choose to change and put Kane on the pitch, but one of them is that it's important to pay respect to people here so that they can see Harry Kane, who is an icon of English football. It's hard to see in this department. It was important to see him in action.
What did you make of Llorentes display, it is said that he leaves this month?
Yes, it's a six-month contract with the club and we'll see what happens. As I have explained for different players, it is not only in our hands what the player wants. Of course the window is open now, we will talk.
What did you do tonight out of the young players, especially Foyth and Skipp?
Yes, I am so happy. I always expect more than the attitude of the young players. They have the quality we believe in, but you can not put too much pressure on them. Today they were very good, Skippy was fantastic. Of course, Kyle Walker-Peters, Foyth, they are so young. I'm so happy with her development.
Another two debuts for Eyoma and Marsh?
Yes, these are players who joined us this season. George and TJ participated in the preseason tour this summer. I think they are players that I hope will have a future in the first team.
Son was applauded today by the Tranmere fans, he's a player you'll miss this month, right?
I accept that and I do not suffer from it. Sure the team is strong enough to move forward and, of course, perform in the way we expect. Of course you want all the players, but I will not suffer. We knew from the beginning of the season that this would happen. It's not a point to suffer from something you know will happen. Mauricio Pochettino with his assistant Jesus Perez
Need someone to sign this month?
Difficult. I do not think we will do anything.
You have enough power in the depth?
I am so happy with my team. You can always improve on different things you can or not.
The result of last night was that good for you?
No, I said before that it was most important to me to enjoy the game. Six points up and four to Manchester City. Of course we enjoy a great season, we are there step by step, but the result does not matter. I really enjoyed it.
