GETTY Tottenham


Mauricio Pochettino's men, meanwhile, have generally been in impressive form, winning four out of their last five league games prior to a disappointing 1-1 draw with Southampton.

When is Newport vs Tottenham and what time is kick-off?

However, they are still in the FA Cup and have a Champions League last-16 clash against Juventus to look forward to.

It will mark a momentous occasion for the League Two side as they will be hosting an English top-flight side for the first time in over 30 years and irrespective of the result, the club and the fans will cherish the occasion.

The hosts will miss Sean Rigg and Marlon Jackson due to injuries. And Ben White and Mickey Demetriou will slot in as the centre-halves.

Padraig Amond will operate as the sole striker for Newport. Jean-Paul Kamudimba Kalala scored the only goal on that night.

Eriksen, Lamela, Aurier, Winks, Lloris are doubts, Alderweireld is nearly certainly out and Danny Rose remains injured.

Eric Dier keeps his place while Juan Foyth comes in for Davinson Sanchez alongside Jan Vertonghen in defence. The full-backs are likely to be given plenty of freedom to run forward and Trippier has shown in the past that he can be extremely influential in such situations.

Pochettino has also hailed Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko, saying: "He is the only player who gives or provides balance in those transitions - offensive to defensive, defensive to offensive - in the team". Mousa Dembele, given his recent fitness issues, could be rested.

Could Fernando Llorente get more game time?

Newport beat Leeds United to secure a meeting with Spurs, who coasted past Wimbledon.

Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld could return against Newport in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday.

The London Evening Standard claim on their website that the Belgian global will not play any part in Spurs' FA Cup tie against the League Two side with manager Mauricio Pochettino choosing not to risk him after his long term absence through injury. The Spaniard has failed to make a mark since his summer move from Swansea City and has managed just two goals in 22 games across all competitions.

There are three players that Tottenham must be wary of on Saturday afternoon.

"It's one game, it's Newport and a hard pitch to play on". However, we are going for a 4-0 away win as our prediction in this fixture.
