Away Newport County

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Kane has been the main man for Tottenham this season, with 31 goals in all competitions so far in 2017-18. He is likely to play against Newport, despite Tottenham’s top four chase and Champions League ties coming up. The England international is 11/10 to score two or more goals against Newport on Wednesday night.

2 We fancy:

A fairly straightforward win for Tottenham, after their scare in South Wales. At 15/2, a 4-0 win for the hosts is not unrealistic given their firepower, and the fact that Newport have not won a game since that draw. Alongside that, Spurs have scored 13 goals in their last six games in all competitions.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Irishman Amond was the hero for Newport in the first game against Spurs, notching the opener and giving hope for a famous result. He is Newport’s leading scorer this season with 11 goals in all competitions, following a summer move from Hartlepool and is 5/1 to score anytime.

Tottenham Hotspur's Last Six:

Tottenham’s last six: Won: 3 Drawn: 3 Lost: 0

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is likely to name a strong lineup after nearly slipping up against Newport last month. Dele Alli, Heung-Son Min and Ben Davies could all start after appearing as substitutes last time out.

Newport do have concerns over Padraig Amond, after he was withdrawn in their league game this weekend. He faces a late fitness test, but the Welsh side will be hoping he can make the match after opening the scoring in the first game.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Newport County Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Dele Alli could start for Tottenham in this game at Wembley

Tottenham suffered a real shock when they travelled to Rodney Parade, and deservedly fell behind to an impressive Newport side. Amond’s goal had looked to be the difference for the hosts, but Kane’s late intervention ensured a replay and a near certain home win is on the cards on Wednesday.

Spurs will not want to give any opportunities for Newport to build on at Wembley, and they will look to put them to the sword quickly. With this in mind, a half time/full time bet in favour of Tottenham is 4/11.

Spurs, who battled back against Liverpool at the weekend to secure a 2-2 draw, will be aware that the FA Cup presents their main route to a trophy this season, and they will look to make a statement here.

A both teams not to score bet is also an interesting option, priced at 4/7, while Tottenham to win by three goals or more is priced at 5/6.

Predicted Score: Tottenham Hotspur 4 - 0 Newport County
