Jamie Carragher says it would be a "travesty" if Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham fails to win a trophy.
Spurs have closed the gap on Premier League leaders Chelsea to four points with six games to play and the two sides meet at Wembley this weekend in the semi-final of the FA Cup.
Pochettino's side were involved in a title race last season, before missing out to Leicester and Carragher says the FA Cup now offers a great chance to earn some much-deserved silverware.
He told Monday Night Football: "We are thinking about the league but if I'm in Tottenham's shoes, this week is all about the FA Cup and the chance for this team to get a trophy.
"This team is too good not to win things. We have watched them for two or three years and we love watching them. We want to see them do well.

"They've got young English players and for the manager, it would be a travesty in two or three years' time if this team haven't won something.
"They have to go and win that FA Cup."
Tottenham are on a seven-game winning run in the Premier League and have won 15 matches out of 17 during an unbeaten league run at home this season.
Carragher highlighted matches against Arsenal and Manchester United during the run-in as big tests for the in-form team - and says the title is possible if they can keep applying pressure to Chelsea.
"The one thing that lets Tottenham down is the big games," he added. "The big moments to go and win a league or maybe an FA Cup.
"Can they go and beat Chelsea next week in a semi-final and get that real big moment?

"You would still have to fancy Chelsea with the run-in that they've got. Four points is not a big lead, but could they turn that to two?
"Four points is still two games. Chelsea can still afford to drop points in a game and are still in front. If you can get it to three points or below - where every single game is going to make a difference - that's when you can see real pressure get put on Chelsea.
"But let's not forget last season when Tottenham were getting closer to Leicester and they dropped off. There will be more pressure on them, the closer they get to Chelsea also."
