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."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
