Mauricio Pochettino thinks his Tottenham squad have shown they can compete for silverware on all fronts this season after watching his team end Leicester’s FA Cup hopes.A much-changed Spurs side, Pochettino swapped eight players, were never really troubled by an equally unfamiliar Foxes line-up as they finally got the better of Claudio Ranieri’s men this season at the fourth time of asking – reaching the fourth round with a 2-0 victory.Having drawn 2-2 in the original tie and with Leicester winning the Barclays Premier League meeting in north London last week, Tottenham triumphed in the final part of the 10-day trilogy courtesy of goals from Son Heung-min and Nacer Chadli at the King Power Stadium – the scene of a 1-1 draw in the league in August.Spurs, fourth in the Premier League and just five points behind leaders Arsenal, will travel to League One strugglers Colchester in the next round at the end of the month before resuming their Europa League challenge against Fiorentina in February.Pochettino said: “I am very pleased with the performance, it was a fantastic victory against a very good team. We dominated the game from the beginning to the end.“The FA Cup is an important competition for us and we showed we have a squad that is good enough to compete in every competition.“We have also the Premier League and Europa League and I think it is very important to keep the squad fit and working hard, and the FA Cup is very important for this. We are having a fantastic season, we are at a fantastic level.“It is difficult to be fair to players but there is fantastic spirit in the changing room and in the training ground.“I don’t like to speak about change. For me, when you have 24 or 25 players they all work very hard and some players deserve to play and can’t – you can only pick 11 and seven on the bench.”

Talented 16-year-old Sanjana Jain, disciple of Dr Raja Radha Reddy and Kaushalya Reddy’s will perform at her Rangpravesam at Kamani auditorium in the national Capital on Monday. Initiated into classical dance at a tender age of nine, Sanjana Jain has now blossomed into a full-fledged artist, ready to perform the Kuchipudi Rangapravesam. Rangapravesam is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘debut’. Ranga means ‘stage’ and Pravesam means entry. 16-year-old Sanjana is the disciple of Dr Raja Radha and Kaushalya Reddy and has done over 40 performances in India and overseas. She will begin her performance with Saraswati Vandana written by great and eminent Hindi Poet Suryakanth Tripathi Nirala for worldwide peace, prosperity, progress and fraternity. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’This will be followed by Mandari Jatiswaram, Krishna Shabdam and Payo Ji Maine Ram Ratandhan Payo. She will also perform on Dev Stuti, a musical composition as an ode in praise of Goddess Parvathi, which will be followed by Tarangam based on Raag Mohan and Taal Adi. The Tarangam marks the climax of a traditional Kuchipudi recital. It depicts famous stories of Krishna’s childhood. This item ends with a display of exquisite virtuosity as the dancers execute intricate footwork patterns by dancing on the rim of a brass plate and coordinate them with complicated rhythmic patterns.Sanjana strives to continue this endeavour and achieve greater levels of merit in this field with the same drive and devotion. Speaking about her Rangapravesam, Sanjana says, “To do justice to the art, lucid imagination and long hours of practice is required to alter between different spaces to bring forth messages through abhinaya, facial expressions, and nritya, pure dance movement.
