Roberto Soldado may be happy to see Tottenham Hotspur reach the League Cup quarter-finals, but the striker couldn’t hide his frustration after his goal drought continued on Wednesday.

The Spain international had a great chance to break the deadlock at White Hart Lane but Brighton goalkeeper Christian Walton denied the former Valencia striker.

Soldado did play his part in Spurs’s opening goal of the night as he exchanged passes with Lamela before the Argentine playmaker swept home in the 54th minute.

The 29-year-old’s strike partner Harry Kane added a second in north London to set up a Capital One Cup last-eight tie against Newcastle United.

And, unselfishly, Soldado was thrilled to see Mauricio Pochettino’s side continue their impressive form in the League Cup amid patchy performances in the Premier League.

“Next stop…Newcastle at home!!Good sensations,but the goal is holding. Great team effort,” Soldado wrote on Instagram.

Soldado has scored one goal this season, netting in a 3-1 victory over Nottingham Forest earlier in the competition.
