Dembele still hopeful of lifting Tottenham silverware

Mousa Dembele still believes Tottenham can lift a trophy this season despite their surprise FA Cup exit to Leeds at the weekend.

The Europa League is now the only competition in which Spurs can still claim silverware.

Dembele, who came on as substitute at Elland Road, told the London Evening Standard: "The most difficult thing is to think every week as you would if you were playing (Manchester) United.

"It is very easy to motivate yourself against them but when you have a team like this (Leeds) it's a bit more difficult, because they have everything to gain.

"You have to give extra energy to motivate yourself and maybe that was a bit of a problem for us but we still feel we can win a trophy this season, because there is a lot of quality in our group.

"It is a bit disappointing that the FA Cup is over but it is great that we have another trophy to get, so we will try to win that one."
