Spurs boss Pochettino risks all at Fiorentina despite Cup final

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino intends to play a full strength XI against Europa League opponents Fiorentina tonight.

Pochettino has all his top players with him despite Spurs facing Chelsea in the Capital One Cup final on Sunday.

He said: "The problem is, the decision that you take always is about the result you get afterwards.

"If for this game you make the rotation and you win, you are a genius - and if you change players and lose the final you are a very bad coach.

"I think it's not fair. The most important thing is to be clear that this game is our first final.

"We need to decide the team, and after analyse every player and try to put the best team out for the final on Sunday."
