Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp admits the league remains the priority, despite winning through to the Carling Cup semis last night.

After victory over Watford, Redknapp said: "We'd love to reach the final.

"I'm sure they enjoyed their day but they won the final and couldn't win a league game.

"We've got to realise where our priorities are. League games are all important for us."

Redknapp, who won the FA Cup with Portsmouth last season, added: "You get this close and it's important to try to go all the way now. The priority is the league, then secondly this competition because we have a genuine chance.

"Alex (United boss Sir Alex Ferguson) will sniff the chance, he'll want to win it. He won't put his youth team out."
