Jose Mourinho will value the domestic cup as he pursues his first piece of silverware with Spurs, and his side are in good form again after victory at Sheffield United, while this game comes just days before taking on champions Liverpool in the Premier League at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, a pivotal game to their hopes of a top four finish and their priority to regain a place in the Champions League. It’s a busy period for Spurs, who are just over a week away from another huge game at home to rivals Chelsea, with Mourinho’s former team fresh from firing Frank Lampard as manager and now set to hire former Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel as his replacement.
Wycombe will hope to spring a surprise though and lean on the magic of the cup, having eased past Preston in the third round with a 4-1 victory at Adams Park, with goals from Fred Onyedinma, Joe Jacobson, Josh Knight and Alex Samuel. And manager Gareth Ainsworth is eager to pull off the shock of the round: "I will be playing the boys the highlights of four years ago. What we achieved as a League Two team, with similar players, I have still got players who played that day. There is definitely comparisons to be made. We were a League Two team going to White Hart Lane, we have come on, we are a Championship team, we know we are better now. I will be playing them those highlights, without a doubt.” Stay tuned for live coverage, score and goal updates, analysis and reaction from this fourth round tie:
