Cape Town - Mauricio Pochettino says he is still working on his "philosophy" at Tottenham, but feels it is starting to bear fruit following Wednesday's 4-0 hammering of Newcastle in the Capital One Cup, reports Football411.

Spurs ran rampant at White Hart Lane this week as goals from Nabil Bentaleb, Nacer Chadli, Harry Kane and Roberto Soldado secured their passage to the semi-finals.

The north Londoners will now take on League One side Sheffield United over two legs in the last-four, although Pochettino is taking nothing for granted in cup competition.

"We need time to improve and stamp our philosophy," he told Sky Sports. "The players need time to change this mentality, but we are playing the right way.

"This competition is important for us and now we're through to the semi-final although we will be playing a very tough team in Sheffield (United).

"Last night (Tuesday) they showed their quality (in beating Southampton). We will face Sheffield and try to play well over the two games."

The other semi-final will see Premier League giants Liverpool and Chelsea lock horns following their respective 3-1 wins over Bournemouth and Derby.

The last-four ties will be played January 20/21 and January 27/28.
