Redknapp makes Carling Cup priority for Tottenham

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says winning the Carling Cup is a priority this season.

Spurs begin their Carling Cup campaign on Tuesday night when they take on Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium and will make several changes to the side that beat Liverpool.

Redknapp said: "I can't understand how teams that are mid-table and not going to get in to Europe just don't go for it. I don't know why they don't care about it.

"Birmingham won it last year. What a great day for them that was.

"Tottenham had a great day when they beat Chelsea to win it (in 2008). I want to go all the way to Wembley in it if I can.

"I will do it by juggling my team around if I can because we are in Europe but I will go there tomorrow with a team that I feel can win the game.

"We'll be looking to have William Gallas, Sandro, Vedran Corluka, Sebastien Bassong, Roman Pavlyuchenko. That's not a bad team is it?

"Once we push on in the competition I will be looking to win it."
