Spurs v Wycombe: (match preview)

Spurs v Wycombe: (match preview)

“We need to forget that it’s a League Two team, it’s 11 v 11 and in one game, a lot of things can happen. If you are right in your mind you can compete and give your best.” (Mauricio Pochettino)

Spurs return to action on Saturday afternoon, when they face league 2 side Wycombe Wanderers in the fourth round of the FA cup. It will be a good old fashioned cup tie at the Lane, in what will be one of our last ever cup games at our beloved stadium. This tie has all the hallmarks of a classic cup tie, we go in to the match on an eight match unbeaten run but the visitors are also on a tremendous run of 16 matches unbeaten. The Chairboys will be a tough test, regardless of the huge gulf in class between the two sides, keep an eye out on Wycombe’s talented striker Scott Kashket who is a Spurs fan, him and the physical Adebayo Akinfenwa will provide the defence with plenty to do. I expect us to win this afternoons match in comfortable fashion, the FA cup is a massive, massive part of this club and I’m hoping we march on in to round in style. COYS

 
Team news: Spurs are without Harry Kane, Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld and Erik Lamela through injury. However, all four could be available for Tuesdays league match against Sunderland. I think it’s quite obvious that Pochettino will rotate his squad for today’s match, I reckon Janssen will start up front whilst Nkoudou and Sissoko will also return on the wings. Photographs of Kyle Walker-Peters and Marcus Edwards in first team training were published on Friday, and both are expected to be in today’s match day squad. I’m hopeful that Walker-Peters will start at right back, I can’t sing the youngster praises high enough, he truly is a superb player and he deserves to make his first team debut more than any other player.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Vorm, Walker-Peters, Wimmer, Carter-Vickers, Davies, Dier, Winks, Onomah, Sissoko, Nkoudou, Janssen.

My score prediction: 4-0 to Spurs courtesy of goals from Janssen x2, Sissoko and Edwards.
One to watch: The iconic veteran striker Adeabayo ‘The Beast’ Akinfnewa.
