[Teams] Tottenham vs Newport County: Confirmed Line-Ups”

Tottenham Hotspur take on Newport County in the FA Cup this evening.

Asked if Alderweireld, who has been absent since November, and Winks and Rose, both missing since Boxing Day, had come through the match unscathed, Pochettino said: "We are going to assess them now and have the communication from the medical staff".

They are turning into a hardy bunch, finally overcoming Newport in this awkward replay after Dan Butler put through his own net and Erik Lamela scored the second.

Complications over that injury and issues in his personal life meant that he did not return until last November, but he was linked with a move back to Italy for numerous 13 months he spent out. Juan Foyth started the last FA Cup game and could partner Alderweireld at the heart of the defence.

With Tottenham safely negotiating their way to the fifth-round of the FA Cup, League One side Rochdale have a dream tie.

The Lilywhite's did not allow The Exiles a second on the ball, as soon as the visitors got the ball back Spurs quickly stole it back.

The state of their pitch received a lot of negativity in the game against Millwall - it had to be heavily sanded to ensure the game would go ahead following poor weather.

The ex-Shamrock Rovers man gave County the lead before Harry Kane's late equaliser booked a Wembley replay.

Tottenham had won all seven of their previous FA Cup home matches against teams from England's fourth tier, scoring 38 goals in the process, but struggled to carve out any early openings against a resolute Newport.

On Wednesday, Tottenham will be hoping to avoid a shock loss against lower league opposition when they host Newport County at Wembley.

But he's not quitting the game entirely and will balance a part-time place on a team alongside his new career in the tattoo studio. Day made another timely block after clever interplay between Llorente and Lamela on the edge of area, but the third goal only seemed a matter of time.

Their fans were magnificent, greeting every stray Spurs pass with a raucous cheer as they tried to unsettled the Premier League.

However, manager Mauricio Pochettino is still likely to make changes with his team set to face Arsenal on Saturday.

The insurance policy - Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli - started this one on the bench.

Jackman said: "Pádraig is a good mate of mine".

They suddenly had more time, more space and more opportunity to express themselves going forward.

With Son and Lamela shining either side of him in the first half, the Spaniard failed to have a shot.

Danny Rose hit the side-netting from a narrow angle on the left in the 23rd minute after connecting with Moussa Sissoko's overhit cross from the right, before a slice of luck handed Spurs the lead three minutes later.
