Tottenham vs Wycombe
Competition: FA Cup
Date: 28 January 2017
Kick-off: 16:00 CET
It is probably true that the FA Cup is not a large priority for Tottenham and their manager, as they are making a real charge up the Premier League ladder, looking to fight off rivals Arsenal and pressure pack leaders Chelsea. But that does not mean they will be happy to fall to Wycombe.
Spurs were in a real rich vein of form domestically, which included a third round FA Cup tie with former Premier Leaguers Aston villa 2-0. They did take a dip against Manchester City in a great game, but they showed they are still a team playing some great football, and as such, they are a deadly team to be facing now. Regardless of how important they think the FA Cup is t them, Spurs have huge depth and will be a threat to a team like Wycombe who won’t have the firepower to keep up, especially at home to Spurs.
For Wycombe, this will be a real uphill battle for them as Spurs are one of the most inform teams in the whole of the English system. They are also a team that has a good balance at the moment, and will be hard to contain. Wycombe have had to work to get here, beating Stourbridge 2-1 in their third round tie, and Chesterfield 5-0 before that, their first game was against Portsmouth, which they won 2-1, but this will definitely be their biggest test to date.
Tottenham vs Wycombe: Domestic form
Although Tottenham’s good winning streak was broken recently with their draw to Manchester City, they have pushed themselves up to third, and even has high as second recently, defeating all that come past them including Chelsea.
Wycombe meanwhile are many, many team back in the English system as they are in fourth – but in League two which is the fourth League of English football.
Tottenham vs Wycombe: Prediction
It seems near impossible to conceive that a team from League two could knock over Tottenham, at home, especially in the form they are in. Wycombe have not even been pushing for the top of their league, as they are still four back there, and a whole host of teams are above them in the grand scheme. Spurs’ C-side would still have more quality than a full strength Wycombe side.
Tottenham vs Wycombe: Tips
There will be very few Spurs stars in this game as they are rested for the Premier League, but the ones that are chosen will want to shine against a weak side so look for a good few goals from Spurs – probably as many as five.
