Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli has admitted he does not welcome allegations against him of diving, although he claims to be undistracted by them.

Kane, who has scored 35 goals for Spurs this season, is out until next month after suffering an ankle injury following a collision with Asmir Begovic in Sunday's 4-1 win at Bournemouth. Of course he is a fantastic striker - I like him a lot - but the big teams can replace good players with good players.

Dele Alli and Danny Rose are both doubts after picking up knocks last weekend. I don't know if who wins the titles like FA Cup or Capital Cup is the best team. You need to find different motivation and stimulus.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino believes his side should be proud of their achievements in recent years even if they haven't delivered silverware because they can't "buy" trophies like their competitors. Having initially tried to play through the discomfort, he returned to the treatment room at the end of December and has only made three appearances since, all against lower-league opposition. Third-to-last Crystal Palace is at 15th-place Huddersfield, which is four points clear of the bottom three.

This is also Conte's second year at Chelsea — and it could be his last after an unsettling season in which he has regularly sniped at the club's board for not signing the players he wanted in order to build on winning the Premier League.

When the Swans last played in this round of the world-famous FA Cup, it was 1964 and the club was still called Swansea Town. However, there is one criticism that is often thrown at him and that he hasn't won a major honour. How does he measure up, for example, to Manchester City's Leroy Sané, who turned 22 in January?

"We expect a great atmosphere and Swansea will be motivated to go to the semi-final, like us".

Mauricio Pochettino has emerged as one of the best coaches in Europe across recent seasons and his star continues to rise as manager of Tottenham.

Alli has already received two bookings for simulation this season, in games against Huddersfield and Liverpool, but the England global insists he does not intentionally try to deceive officials.

He said his players feel proud and happy with their current status and are not feeling undo pressure about the perceived urgency to win a trophy.
