Video: Tottenham 1-0 Sheffield United - Capital One Cup semi-final still in the balance

Mauricio Pochettino admitted his Tottenham side laboured to victory in their Capital One Cup semi-final first leg against Sheffield United - and defended his decision to name Emmanuel Adebayor as his skipper. A second-half Andros Townsend penalty was all that separated Spurs and their League One visitors, with the tie very much still alive heading into next Wednesday's second leg at Bramall Lane. Including the spot-kick, awarded for a handball against Blades defender Jay McEveley, Pochettino only saw his side hit the target twice on a night when Sheffield United frustrated their top-flight hosts for much of the contest.
