Newport County v Tottenham Hotspur

Newport County v Tottenham Hotspur

The League Two team should be at full-strength for this clash and player-manager Flynn is likely to resist the temptation to field himself against the Premier League outfit.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino kept some first-team players in reserve - among them Dele Alli and Son - but the presence of Kane, Eric Dier and Jan Vertonghen showed this was a game Spurs were taking seriously.

The only other meetings after that were in the FA Cup, with 4-1 and 4-0 triumphs for Spurs in 1959 and 1960 respectively.

Defenders Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose are both doubts along with goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, Christian Eriksen and Serge Aurier.

The draw is priced at 13/2 (7.50), which would see Michael Flynn's side earn a replay at Wembley. Scot Bennett, Joss Labadie and Matty Dolan will occupy the central midfield area to try and prevent Tottenham from settling into their fluid game rhythm. Kieran Trippier and Kyle Walker-Peters are full-backs.

League One high-fliers Wigan produced a blistering performance to dump Premier League side West Ham out of the FA Cup with a 2-0 win at the DW Stadium.

Alli was sent on in the 65th minute and he instantly set up an opportunity for Son, whose effort was blocked by the legs of the diving Day.

Newport have scored at least two goals in each of their FA Cup games this season.

Tottenham Hotspur have won five of their last six FA Cup matches.

Tottenham were struggling to find any fluency on a muddy pitch, although Kane did side-foot over from 25 yards after linking well with Fernando Llorente. The embarrassment can wreck your season and Mauricio Pochettino will make his team fully aware of that. The Spaniard has failed to make a mark since his summer move from Swansea City and has managed just two goals in 22 games across all competitions. One week after what feels like the whole team came down with the flu, Spurs have a bunch of players that are recovering from a raft of minor injuries.

An 89th-minute victor from Shawn McCoulsky set up the Exiles' first fourth-round FA Cup tie in 41 years, causing the biggest FA Cup upset of the last round.

Bet365 are showing Newport County vs Tottenham on Saturday January 27, 2018 via their live streaming service. And a 3-0 victory is what we at the Hard Tackle predict for the North Londoners.
