Once again, Tottenham Hotspur go into an FA Cup tie with the odds stacked right in their favour. The trouble for Mauricio Pochettino, though, has been the lack of conviction with which they have beaten both AFC Wimbledon and Newport Country. On paper there should be absolutely no reason why Spurs should not ease past Rochdale on Sunday and book a spot in the quarter-finals, even if they rest the likes of Harry Kane, but as you can see with our tips, we are unsure with just how much ease they will get through. But we do think they will progress.

There has been a lot of talk about the state of Rochdale’s pitch coming into this one, and Pochettino has voiced his concerns already. But League One’s bottom club will hope it can level the playing field somewhat.

Form

Pochettino knew his side were entering a crucial stage of the season in recent weeks, with games against Liverpool away, Manchester United at home and then Arsenal at home always likely to have a big impact on whether they will finish in a Champions League spot. Though they took seven points from those three games, whether they will achieve their goal again is still very much in the balance.

Though Rochdale have been going well in the FA Cup and have a chance to play at Wembley if they can snatch a draw from this one, they’ve really struggled in the league and are currently staring down the barrel of relegation out of the Football League.

Team News

After such a big win over Juventus on Tuesday, Pochettino may rest a few big names, but he could welcome Toby Aldwereireld back into the fold. Rochdale boss Keith Hill has no fresh injury concerns.
