Tottenham’s Moussa Sissoko itching to end long wait for a trophy

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho

"I am buying. I am buying but even if I win I can not do it normally because we have our pre-season and I don't think I will have conditions to do that", he said.

Brentford, fourth in the Championship, had already beaten four Premier League clubs in Southampton, Newcastle, Fulham and West Bromwich Albion to reach their first domestic cup semifinal.

"We could imagine the enthusiasm in Macedonia to have Tottenham there and now we go to Marine for a historical match and we feel very sorry the stadium is empty and they cannot enjoy, celebrate the day in the way they'd love".

"So we've looked at Tottenham in the Europa League, in the League Cup and in the Premier League and we have an idea of a way to play the game which might not happen".

"I know a lot of the boys have been here a long time now and we are desperate to win trophies for the club", said Tottenham defender Eric Dier, who played in that final. "Against Brentford, I was playing number 6 without the ball but with the ball, I was higher - another number 8 with Tangwe [Ndombele]".

With the tie now being played behind closed doors, the club have sold virtual match tickets, which Young says is unfortunate for the biggest game in the club's history.

Liverpool have tried to help Marine pull off one of the great FA Cup upsets against Tottenham by giving their non-League neighbours vital scouting footage for analysis.

He added: "To be honest I haven't moved out of the house much but with work we've all been taking precautions and wearing masks, got hand sanitizers and we wear gloves".

"The players have been absolutely fabulous in this cup run", said the qualified accountant. "It's a big chance for us to showcase our abilities". To draw a Premier League club to come to Marine is a phenomenal achievement.

"We are very thankful that Everton stepped in to allow us to train last minute at their training ground at Finch Farm and Liverpool have stepped in to allow us to train there tomorrow. Let's believe it." On our own, let's keep fighting and let's try to win every match and see what we can do.

This time, Tottenham will have Mourinho on their side.

Mourinho will have a chance to deliver Tottenham's first trophy since winning the League Cup in 2008.

Bale has struggled for fitness and form since returning to Spurs on loan from Real Madrid, but he has indicated that he wants to be involved this weekend.

"If we go there and we lose, of course, it would be massive for them, but it would be because of a lack of respect from us to them".

"I clearly understand the dream", Mourinho said.
