Andre Villas-Boas believes Tottenham are capable of putting together an extended cup run this season.

Spurs go up against Hull in the 4th round of the Capital One Cup this evening hoping to secure their spot in the quarter finals.

The north London club have started their Europa League campaign well with three wins from three, while they are also maintaining a push for Champions League qualification.

With an FA Cup campaign to come the games will come thick and fast for Tottenham, but Villas-Boas believes his side are well-equipped to deal with a packed fixture list.

Spurs signed no less than seven players over the summer with the aim of having two players for every position as the look to win their first trophy since the League Cup in 2008.

"We will introduce changes [for the game against Hull tonight]," the Spurs boss told reporters.

"But the difference this season is that we have the quality available to throw in a very good team.

"We will definitely do lots of changes because the schedule has been quite tight. We will have played Thursday, Sunday and Wednesday.

"We want to continue to do well and we have a responsibility at home to go through.

"We have the team to do it so naturally the changes will happen."

Record summer signing Erik Lamela will likely be given a chance to shine, while Gylfi Sigurdsson, who was left out of Spurs' 1-0 win over the Tigers on Sunday, could also feature.

Emmanuel Adebayor, who is yet to play for Spurs this season, may also start up front.

The game at White Hart Lane is sure to be an interesting one not only because Spurs managed three points on Sunday thanks to a controversial penalty.

Villas-Boas was critical of the home support for not backing their team during the game.

Tottenham follow up their game against Hull tonight with an away trip to Everton on Saturday.
