Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham will not be prioritising their targets in the remainder of the season.

The Argentine was talking ahead of an FA Cup tussle with Crystal Palace at White Hart Lane, the third different competition his side have featured in during a seven day period.

Tottenham boosted their hopes of a Premier League title win with a hard fought 2-1 victory at Manchester City last Sunday.

They then travelled to Florence on Thursday night to secure a 1-1 draw at Fiorentina in their Europa League last-32 first leg clash.

Pochettino says there is no danger Spurs will be treating any of the three competitions they are battling for lightly, despite their hectic schedule.

“It is important for the club and the players. It is true we are in different competitions and have a lot of games ahead but it is for that that we have a strong squad and it is important to try and win and give our best in all the games we play,” he said.

The White Hart Lane boss said it is a chance for each and every member of his first-team squad to show their worth during this busy period and he says the players are very much invested in the decision to keep going on all three fronts.

“The mentality is perfect. The players want to play every game and they feel they are strong and can play every game and win the game but we need to carry on in the same way,” he added.

Spurs are 1.60 to defeat Crystal Palace at White Hart Lane. The visitors are 6.00 while the draw is 3.80.
