A win tomorrow will see us face Norwich City at home in the fifth round. If we have any chance of winning a trophy this season, then this is the competition we should look towards.
The last time Spurs won the FA Cup was in 1991. That was 29 years ago.
Dele Alli has “a chance” of featuring in Tottenham’s FA Cup fourth-round replay at Southampton, according to Jose Mourinho. Alli was injured by a Raheem Sterling tackle during Sunday’s 2-0 win over Manchester City on Sunday. However, he was able to play on before being replaced.
Son Heung-min put us 1-0 up at St Mary’s in the first game, before substitute Sofiane Boufal’s late equaliser forced a replay.
New signing Steven Bergwijn, who scored on his debut against City, is ineligible for the tie while defender Ben Davies, who has not featured since 23 November, has returned to training after an ankle injury. But there will be high hopes he will be ready for the Aston Villa game on the 16th.
Southampton midfielder Stuart Armstrong has made good progress from the hip injury he suffered in the original tie against Spurs but is unlikely to feature.
Since losing 1-0 to Crystal Palace in February 2016, Tottenham have won each of their last seven home FA Cup matches, scoring 25 goals across these victories.
Spurs have won eight of their last nine home games against Southampton (L1), with all games coming in the Premier League – they won 2-1 against the Saints earlier this season.
This is the first time an FA Cup tie between Spurs and Southampton has gone to a replay since 1994-95, when Spurs won 6-2 in a fifth-round replay after a 1-1 draw.
Southampton have been beaten in just one of their last 11 away FA Cup matches (W7 D3 L1), losing 1-0 at Sunderland in February 2014.
Spurs’ Son Heung-min has been directly involved in 18 goals in 20 FA Cup appearances (11 goals, 7 assists), scoring their goal in the 1-1 draw at St. Mary’s in the original tie.
So, there you have it. COYS!
