PELLEGRINI ON SILVA INJURY

More from Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini: "There was no reason why David couldn't play. He was prepared. We tried to play with the best players. David was perfect to play. He was not going to play the whole game, my idea was to change him for Samir Nasri.”

POCHETTINO ON FUTURE

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino to Sky Sports: "I never feel the pressure, I understand my job and my position. Like any manager, positive results mean you are a very good manager, you lose and you are very bad, but I have the balance in my life."

HYYPIA REACTION

Brighton boss Sami Hyypia: "I couldn't ask more from the players, they faced a strong Tottenham side so we had to play defensively. Perhaps we could have pressed more, creating more space, but we played very well defensively. We had to to have any chance [to win]."

POCHETTINO REACTION

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino: "Getting into the quarter-final was the objective, so we are happy. All potential trophies are realistic for us [to win]. We played very well and created a lot of chances. After Sunday it was difficult as we played well but didn't make the chances."

PELLEGRINI REACTION

- "We must be worried. We didn't win any of the three games this week"
- "I'm worried about why we are not playing the way we normally play"
- "We had a lot of chances and couldn't score. It's a difficult moment"

Pellegrini = a worried man.

PLAYER RATINGS - TOTTENHAM 2-0 BRIGHTON

TOP - Erik Lamela: With Spurs missing a spark in the first half, Lamela took just eight minutes to find it with another well-taken goal. A definite game-changer for his side.

FLOP - Adam Chicksen: Had a tough time against Townsend at the start which seemed to shake his confidence throughout.

In full: Tottenham 2-0 Brighton

PLAYER RATINGS - MAN CITY 0-2 NEWCASTLE

TOP - Ryan Taylor: Tonight’s real success story saw Taylor make his comeback from injury after 26 months on the treatment table. Some neat touches appeared to give him some early confidence and he looked tidy throughout. His heroic block with his torso kept City at bay late on

FLOP - Fernandinho: Caught out in possession in the build up to Newcastle’s opener as he struggled to adapt to the early pace. Failed to deal with Obertan’s pace throughout. A poor evening.

In full: Manchester City 0-2 Newcastle

TOTTENHAM 2-0 BRIGHTON - SUMMARY

Alex Young reports from White Hart Lane: “Erik Lamela scored the first and dictated the play as Brighton were pushed further and further back after the break. Andros Townsend also did his chance of more regular first-team action no harm with an unselfish performance on the flank. With Manchester City knocked out, Mauricio Pochettino has no excuse but to give this competition serious consideration now.”
