    Adebayor to miss cup tie

    Mauricio Pochettino says Emmanuel Adebayor will not be ready to return to the Tottenham squad for Wednesday's Capital One Cup quarter-final against Newcastle.

    The 30-year-old striker was granted compassionate leave last week as he flew to Ghana for personal reasons, but has since returned to the training ground.

    Adebayor's future at White Hart Lane remains unclear and head coach Pochettino admits there is no chance of the former Arsenal and Manchester City man making a comeback in the final eight of the cup.

    His last appearance came in a 2-1 loss at home to Stoke on November 9 and he has scored just once in the Premier League this season.

    When asked whether Adebayor could be involved against Alan Pardew's side, Pochettino said: "He was back yesterday (Monday), but play tomorrow? No.

    "He began training after one week yesterday so it would be impossible for him to be ready tomorrow."

    Pochettino made 10 changes ahead of a 2-0 victory over Brighton in the previous round, and although he stopped short of confirming more alterations this time out, he did suggest some of those on the fringes of his team could be involved.

    "Tomorrow we play the best players to try to go to the semi-final," he said.

    "At Tottenham it is not about names, it's about the squad. We have a strong squad. I have confidence in all players. For tomorrow, the players we will play is the best starting 11 to try to go to the semi-final.

    "It's important for the club and important for us and our supporters. It's a big game and a very good opportunity to go to a semi-final. We need to create a good platform.

    "Newcastle are a very good team. We need to create a nice and great atmosphere to go to the semi-final."

    Meanwhile, Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has predicted a bright England future for Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

    The 21-year-old frontman is busily making a name for himself after emerging from the Academy ranks, and Pardew, while wary of him as he prepares to take his Magpies team to north London for the quarter-final clash, is excited by him as an Englishman.

    The 53-year-old, who watched Kane score in Sunday's 2-1 Barclays Premier League victory at Swansea, said: "I think he is fabulous.

    "I watched him on Sunday and when you have got an English striker who can do 13km at pace and have the quality and technical ability in the box, [England manager] Roy Hodgson should count himself very lucky."

    Newcastle head for the capital for the second time in five days after losing 4-1 in the league at resurgent Arsenal on Saturday evening, but do so determined to build upon victories in their last two trips to White Hart Lane to extend their League Cup run.

    Neither Pardew nor anyone else who has followed the recent fortunes of his club needs any reminding that the last major trophy was taken back to Tyneside in 1969, and they have not lifted a domestic prize since 1955.

    However, a third round victory at Crystal Palace was followed by a largely unexpected fourth round success at Manchester City which was secured with the likes of Mehdi Abeid, Sammy Ameobi, Rolando Aarons and Adam Armstrong in the starting line-up.

    The feel-good factor fostered by progression sparked a much-improved run of form in the league and with the club currently comfortable in upper mid-table, there is a determination to make a genuine tilt at the semi-finals ahead of Sunday's derby showdown with Sunderland.

    Pardew said: "I think this team may be more geared up for football than past ones, so that helps, but we have also played very well and the cup competition has been key to the turn-around in our season.

    "The Palace win was much-needed and then at City, we put a performance in I don't think anyone expected with three or four players not many had heard of. They made a name for themselves that night and have been a big asset for us.

    "If we win this, we have got all the momentum we need going into the derby. It can work in our favour, it can go against you if you lose two or three to injury.

    "We need to stay injury-free and need our big players in the derby, like [skipper Fabricio] Coloccini, who has missed the last two."

    Tottenham outclass Newcastle to reach Capital One Cup semis

    Tottenham obliterated Newcastle as they stylishly secured their place in Capital One Cup semifinals.

    Mauricio Pochettino's start to life in north London has not been without its teething problems, yet Spurs fans are now beginning to see the performances they yearn for.

    The recent improvements were evident at White Hart Lane on Wednesday evening, when Nabil Bentaleb, Nacer Chadli, Harry Kane and Roberto Soldado all scored in a 4-0 demolition of Newcastle.

    It puts Spurs within a two-legged semi-final of Wembley and help made amends for October's embarrassing 2-1 defeat to Alan Pardew's men at White Hart Lane.

    They certainly impressed in laying that ghost to rest, with Bentaleb capitalising on a mistake by Newcastle's third-choice goalkeeper, Jak Alnwick, to turn home midway through the first half.

    It was a lead doubled by Chadli seconds after half-time and, once Massadio Haidara cleared a Jan Vertonghen header off the line, Kane put the game out of sight.

    It continued the England Under-21s international's record of scoring in every round of this season's competition and his replacement Soldado added extra gloss, slotting home from close range after Christian Eriksen's initial effort was saved.

    While things are on the up for Tottenham, this defeat is hardly the visitors' ideal preparation for the Tyne-Wear derby against Sunderland this weekend.

    It was a result which looked likely from early on, with Benjamin Stambouli, one of six Spurs changes, seeing a long-range effort loop onto the roof of the net via a deflection.

    Chadli got away the evening's first shot on target after meeting a lovely Andros Townsend pass, before Kane almost latched onto a fine cross-field ball from Danny Rose.

    Townsend shot over as Spurs continued brightly and took the lead 18 minutes in after a moment that will haunt Alnwick.

    Newcastle's third-choice goalkeeper inexplicably fumbled an Eriksen corner and Bentaleb reacted quickly to scoop home in front of the befuddled visiting support.

    It was a lead Spurs deserved but one which it looked like they were easily capable of squandering.

    Michel Vorm did well to prevent Moussa Sissoko ending an impressive run with a thumping goal from distance shortly before the opening goal, which was followed by a major let-off for Pochettino's men.

    Yoan Gouffran was afforded time to swing in a cross from the right which found Emmanuel Riviere unmarked, only for the frontman to direct wide from close range, unaware the offside flag was raised.

    Sissoko stung the palms of Vorm from 25 yards as Newcastle's search for a leveller continued - a task Spurs attempted to make more difficult as half-time approached.

    Kane looked likeliest to provide a second Spurs goal and, thanks to Gouffran's shocking backpass, was allowed to burst forward and unleash a fierce drive just wide.

    The academy graduate was proving a nuisance and looked to have won a penalty after going down under pressure from Fabricio Coloccini, only for referee Andre Marriner to infuriate Pochettino by waving play on.

    If the Spurs head coach was concerned about that costing his side, those fears were alleviated seconds into the second half.

    When the sides last met here Sammy Ameobi's moments after the restart was the catalyst to Newcastle's win, whereas this time it was the hosts celebrating when Chadli's low strike crept past Alnwick.

    It was a sucker punch Pardew's men were unable to recover from, with Remy Cabella and Riviere somehow unable to turn home Ayoze Perez's cross.

    The Magpies' need for a goal was leaving spaces at the back and Vlad Chiriches forced a save from Newcastle's third-choice goalkeeper.

    A goal-line clearance from Haidara prevented Vertonghen extending Spurs' lead, but fans' favourite Kane soon added a third, collecting a pass from Townsend to coolly slot home.

    It was Kane's last action of the night, but his replacement carried on where he left off as Soldado reacted quickly to tap home after Alnwick parried Eriksen's fizzing drive.

    Townsend and Soldado had attempts shortly afterwards and, at the other end, Vorm was held firm under pressure from Perez and substitute Adam Armstrong as Spurs secured their semi-final spot.
