The Draw @ 6/1 with William Hill

Tottenham face a tough test of a different kind in the FA Cup fourth round as they travel to Newport County. The bookies, understandably, make Mauricio Pochettino’s side overwhelming favourites, but they must be aware of the atmosphere and energy of the home side, who will view this as their cup final. They will remain tight at the back, and we expect the Spurs boss to make a few changes to his side for this one. It may seem unlikely, but don’t rule out a draw and a money-spinning replay at Wembley for the League Two side.

GRAB THIS FROM BETVICTOR

They already took down Leeds at home, while Spurs eased past Wimbledon in the third round. There is little doubt who should progress from this tie.

Form

Newport are looking quite strong in League Two as is stands, sitting ninth and well in with a chance of a play-off spot. Four successive wins and five unbeaten in two competitions makes great reading for their fans and they will certainly be confident of causing a real shock in this game. Of course, their primary concern is their league position and a late promotion push.

Spurs were left frustrated after failing to beat Southampton on Sunday afternoon, and their Champions League hopes are dwindling a little, but Harry Kane is still in fine form. Should he play against Newport, the chances of a shock decrease immensely.

Team News

Newport have no fresh injury concerns coming into this game, but Tottenham will be without Toby Alderweireld. While Pochettino could ring the changes for this game, he should have Hugo Lloris back after he missed the Southampton game through illness.
