Newport will be hoping to inflict a shock defeat against the Premier League side after they beat Leeds United in the third round of the competition.

Tottenham strolled into the fourth round with a comprehensive 3-0 victory over AFC Wimbledon at Wembley.

Spurs have been title contenders in the Premier League over the last couple of seasons but have not won a trophy since their League Cup triumph in the 2007/08 season.

The last time Tottenham lost to fourth-tier opposition was when they faced Russell Slade's Grimsby Town in September 2005.

Harry Winks (ankle), and Danny Rose (knee) are unlikely to be risked though they have not officially been ruled out completely, while Christian Eriksen and Hugo Lloris continue to recover from illness. Joss Labadie and Matthew Dolan are not certainties for this tie.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has a number of selection decisions to make before the clash at the Newport Stadium.

According to Kuo Apple will release an iPhone X Plus model with an even bigger screen, hopefully mitigating the issue. Odds are he has only bits of information he's trying to put together in a way that makes sense.

Victor Wanyama, who did not feature in the weekend game, should start in the middle of the park, alongside Eric Dier to provide a solid platform for the attack-minded players to build upon.

Mauricio Pochettino has named a strong side for the game with Harry Kane starting alongside Fernando Llorente up front.

Tottenham travel to League Two Newport County for a place in the fifth round of this season's FA Cup.

Spurs have scored at least two goals in their last six FA Cup appearances.

Newport will be facing Tottenham for the first time since consecutive FA Cup meetings in 1959 and 1960, with Spurs winning both games, scoring four in each.

"We are in that process that one training session is important, one game against Real Madrid or Manchester United".
