Mauricio Pochettino "not surprised" by Rochdale display against Tottenham Hotspur

Pochettino stresses importance of Rochdale FA Cup match

Dale have never reached the quarter-finals, and Dunphy said: "In my memory it's the biggest game we've ever played".

Some crisp passing ripped open the Spurs defence as Andrew Cannon layed off the ideal ball to the unmarked Henderson in the penalty area.

During and after the game, Spurs fans took to Twitter to hail Moura's display, suggesting that he was the best player on the park and one of the few players to come out of the game with any credit, even adding that he has already repaid his transfer fee more than Fernando Llorente has.

It seemed Spurs' recovery was complete when Rochdale defender Harrison McGahey brought down Dele Alli and Kane beat Lillis, who dived the right way, with a well-struck penalty.

"After the replay against Newport, I was with my coaching staff and they showed me a picture from Rochdale's pitch after their tie against Millwall and it was not in a great condition". "We played some incredible football against Spurs".

"The performance deserved at least the opportunity to go to Wembley in a replay", he said.

Mauricio Pochettino opted to ring the changes for the FA Cup match and it was a decision that didn't look like paying off with a number of players looking short of match fitness.

Why not take not take them on and try to win the game?

"I was not surprised [by how Dale performed]. Newport gave us a fantastic game and they lost their next game in the league 5-0". We got what we felt was a deserved equaliser.

"That's why it's good to reduce expectations and then he will feel comfortable in an environment and show his quality with no pressure to score goals or to play well - to have confidence".

"When Tottenham play it is about the competition and the FA Cup is an important competition that we have the possibility to get the quarter final if we are capable of performing in the way we have for the last months".

This match marks the first competitive meeting between the two sides, with Rochdale losing their last six FA Cup matches against top-flight teams.
