Tottenham begin their FA Cup campaign later today with what looks a rather favourable home tie against out-of-form League One side Portsmouth.

After a diffuclt few weeks, a 4-0 win at Crystal Palace eased the pressure on Antonio Conte and attention turns to the club’s most realistic avenue of ending their almost 15-year wait for a trophy.

They welcome a Portsmouth team without a manager to north London on Saturday after Danny Cowley was sacked after a mediocre first half of the campaign at Fratton Park.


Date, kick-off time and venue

Tottenham vs Portsmouth is scheduled for a 12.30pm GMT kick-off on Saturday, January 7, 2023.

The match will take place at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Tottenham vs Portsmouth team news

Yves Bissouma is available for Spurs after serving a one-game ban for the win at Crystal Palace and should come in, likely to partnet Oliver Skipp in midfield. Pape Matar Sarr will be looking for more minutes. Bryan Gil will keep his place in attack.

Dejan Kulusevski is again ruled out, joining Lucas Moura, Richarlison and Rodrigo Bentancur on the sidelines.

Portsmouth hope to have Clark Robertson back after he was forced to miss the defeat to Charlton.

Tottenham vs Portsmouth prediction

Spurs may be a little vulnerable to a banana skin in north London but an underperforming Pompey will likely find themselves outgunned.

A 3-0 Tottenham win.
