Can Millwall earn their Spurs?

With Manchester City and Arsenal safely through to the FA Cup semi finals at Wembley, Tottenham Hotspur look to join them but must see off a feisty Millwall side first.

 

Team News

 

Mauricio Pochettino has a relatively unchanged squad available with only Erik Lamela and Danny Rose out injured. There could well be some changes to the starting line up with Harry Winks and Kieran Trippier coming in to the team.

 

Millwall could have Jordan Archer unavailable in goal with a groin injury. Other than Archer, there are no other injury concerns for Neil Harris.

 

Fierce Cup farewell to White Hart Lane?

 

This tie will be the last FA cup match to take place at White Hart Lane before Spurs move into Wembley, whilst their new stadium is built. After a century of drama at the Lane, expect a fierce ending as these two lock horns in a local derby.

 

The Lions won’t come here and roll over because they are unbeaten in 2017 with only two goals conceded in their last 13 games. This will make Tottenham’s task even tougher but their home record this season has been impeccable.

 

Harry Kane vs Lee Gregory should be an interesting battle because Kane has scored eight goals in just his last three domestic appearances. Gregory is however Millwall’s top scorer and in his first FA Cup quarter final, so will be keen to deliver a performance to be proud of.

 

Tottenham’s other key players will be Dele Alli and Son Heung-Min going forwards. Their visitors however have Steve Morison and Aiden O’Brien available to help cause issues in the box.

 

Prediction

 

Expect both teams to score here seeing as its a hot tempered derby but Tottenham are yet to lose at home to Millwall in all competitions.

 

Given how strong, Spurs’ home form has been, it would be a surprise if they lost here but Millwall have already claimed three Premier League scalps in their cup run. A fourth consecutive top flight victim looks unlikely but extra time would be an achievement in itself.

 

Prediction: Tottenham Hotspur 3-2 Millwall (AET)

Result: Tottenham Hotspur 6-0 Millwall (90 Minutes)
