Tottenham needed a confidence-building and morale-boosting victory after successive defeats to Liverpool and Gent and they certainly got it at Fulham's Craven Cottage on Sunday.

Mauricio Pochettino picked a strong side and was rewarded with a dominant performance, as Harry Kane scored his second hat trick in all competitions this season in the 3-0 win.

LONDON -- Three quick thoughts from Craven Cottage as Tottenham eased through the FA Cup fifth round with a 3-0 win over Fulham on Sunday afternoon.

1. Kane tallies treble as Spurs cruise 

Tottenham breezed into the FA Cup quarterfinals having made short work of Fulham. Harry Kane, a prematch doubt to play at Craven Cottage, grabbed a clinically executed hat-trick: his final goal came in the 73rd minute, just as manager Mauricio Pochettino was trying to substitute his captain for the...

Tottenham struggling with injuries and Pochettino's tactical tweaks

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol says Tottenham rely on Dele Alli and Harry Kane too much.

There was a time when Mauricio Pochettino was criticised for not having a Plan B; for being too tactically inflexible. Now it has become unclear what Plan A is -- if anything there has been too much tinkering.

Spurs started the season using his favoured 4-2-3-1 formation but after a spell with a 4-1-4-1 system and an unsuccessful trial of a 4-4-2 midfield diamond, he moved to 3-4-2-1.

The catalyst was the limp 1-0 defeat at Manchester United in December, when Kyle Walker and Danny Rose were neutralised....

Mauricio Pochettino must win silverware to back up his reputation

Steve Nicol is critical of Spurs' inability to make up for the current struggles of Harry Kane and Dele Alli.
Eric Dier says while Spurs showed more aggression, they didn't create nearly as many chances.

If history is a guide, Tottenham will exit the FA Cup on Sunday. Not because of Spurs' record against Fulham, which shows eight wins in their past 10 meetings. Or, indeed, their past in the FA Cup, which only Arsenal and Manchester United have lifted more often. Nor, even, a recent record showing a mere two defeats and nine victories in 13 matches over all competitions.

But more so because of Mauricio Pochettino's personal history. The Argentine has forged a reputation as a manager who takes teams...

Dele Alli fades as unrecognisable Tottenham lack confidence at Gent

Spurs suffered a surprise first-leg Europa League defeat in Belgium going down to a Jeremy Perbet goal.
BT Sport highlight: Gent earned a hard-fought 1-0 first leg advantage, as Tottenham failed to convert their chances.
Eric Dier says while Spurs showed more aggression, they didn't create nearly as many chances.

A goal just before the hour mark after sloppy defending by Tottenham was enough to give Gent the advantage going into next week's Europa League round-of-32 return leg at Wembley Stadium.

Mauricio Pochettino had fielded a near full-strength team, hoping to get a reaction after last Saturday's defeat in the Premier League to Liverpool at Anfield, but Spurs started sluggishly and only managed one decent shot on target in the first half. Tottenham improved briefly at the start of the second half and...

At full strength, Spurs' European struggles continue in defeat at Gent

Spurs suffered a surprise first-leg Europa League defeat in Belgium going down to a Jeremy Perbet goal.
Craig Burley breaks down the goals Spurs conceded at Liverpool and explains why they may need to change philosophy.

GHENT, Belgium -- Three conclusions from Tottenham's 1-0 defeat at KAA Gent on Thursday in the first leg of the Europa League round of 32.

1. Spurs players not up for the cup

If Tottenham want to win the Europa League -- and their manager and captain are adamant that they do -- this was not the way to show it. Spurs' hopes of winning a first trophy since 2008 were dealt a significant blow with a 1-0 defeat to Belgian minnows KAA Gent, the lowlight of a dismal season in Europe.

Some Spurs fans didn't...
