For Sky Blues fans, the White Hart Lane tie was a poignant reminder of one of the greatest days in the club's history- their 1987 Cup final victory over Spurs- although they were unable to pull off such a result on Saturday.

Instead a strong Tottenham side took the lead just 12 minutes in when Clint Dempsey stabbed home a Gareth Bale flick.

Bale lengthened the scoreline as he netted a deflected shot from the American, and it was Dempsey who secured the win with his second goal, a header from the back post, to make it 3-0.

During his five-year spell at the club, Spurs assistant boss Freund has reached the semi-finals on two occasions, and now firmly has his sights set on reaching the final.

He said: "We know what we want to do in the league, we have won the Cup eight times before and we would like to go all the way this year.

"It was a professional performance.

"In the first half it was a different class. It was a great performance and we deserved the win.

"We didn't have to remind the players to be professional. They are really good. They put the opposition under pressure, they played with a high tempo and created chances."

Freund went on to praise Dempsey's brace, adding: "It was great to see Clint scoring twice.

"He needs goals. Adebayor scored last time so it's great for the squad that we have strikers that are scoring."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
