Tottenham Hotspur

In Brief

Mood great after 2:0 home win vs. Man City on Sunday. Looking for eighth consecutive home FA Cup win! Kane and Sissoko sidelined. Davies and Alli doubtful. Bergwijn ineligible.

Looking Back

Spurs were second-best in home match vs. Man City, but saved penalty and lots of luck saw hosts stealing unlikely 2:0 win. Result decided by only 2 shots on target for Lilywhites and only after City were reduced down to ten men.

Tottenham have won 7 consecutive home FA Cup games, with 2 goals or more scored in every one of those. However, worth stressing that only 1 of those 7 games against fellow top flight rivals.

Looking Ahead

Coach Mourinho set to rotate and many of those that started on Sunday now could be left out. Likes of Vertonghen, Gedson, Ndombele and Lamela should be amongst starters though.

Davies back in light training, but this match likely coming too soon for him. Still have important Sissoko and Kane in rehabilitation. Also Bergwijn ineligible as he wasn't registered on time for this competition.

Alli expected to be over minor ankle issue on time, but Wanyama sick and not expected to feature.

Southampton

In Brief

Despite 0:4 away defeat vs. Liverpool display was good. Form has been impressive in last 6 weeks – (W6 D2 L2). Armstrong remains sidelined, but no other injury issues. Walker-Peters ineligible.

Looking Back

Southampton somehow suffered undeserved 0:4 loss on visit to leaders Liverpool, despite fact that their positive display saw them create lots of scoring chances. For large parts of this game performance was very good.

In fact displays had been impressive for over 6 weeks now, with wins in 6 of last 10 games. Very dangerous on the road where 4 of those 6 wins achieved.

Unlucky to only draw 1:1 at home vs. Tottenham after dominating this game for large parts too.

Looking Ahead

Coach Hasenhuttl expected to refresh line-up, but at same time he is likely to trust pretty strong line-up. Especially with Southampton having weekend off after this replay.

Armstrong only injury concern, but Walker-Peters also missing as he can’t face his parent club.
