Spurs needed Wednesday night's fourth round replay to finally overcome League Two Newport after they nearly came unstuck in the original clash on the Welsh side's badly cut up Rodney Parade pitch.

Vorm starts in goal, with Aurier, Alderweireld, Foyth and Rose making up the defence. "Of course, he wants to score goals and win titles but I can not say anything more about this".

They were able to recall defender Toby Alderweireld for the first time since their win over Real Madrid on 1 November, and England left-back Danny Rose also returned for his first appearance since Boxing Day with Tottenham heading into the final stretch of the season largely injury free. It's completely different to training. He had the chance to score but you know now we have 24 players and it will be tough to find a place in the starting XI for everyone.

Kane ducks under this, with his Premier League century and 13 assists meaning a goal involvement every 99.6 minutes, although he has played 124 fewer top-flight games. His mentality is fantastic and he will improve.

"It was a professional performance, the job is done and we're happy to be in the next round", he said.

Lamela, who was making only his fourth start of the season, netted his first goal for Spurs since September 2016, adding to Dan Butler's own goal as the hosts cruised into round five.

Pochettino said he was due to speak to Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy on Thursday afternoon and he hopes a solution to Rochdale's pitch can be found.

Asked if the pitch could be unsafe for the players, Pochettino said: "Yes but I think the opponent too, eh?"

"Of course with him, in a very short period, he suffered two illnesses and it's important to care about him".

At a press conference, the 45-year-old told reporters: "Yes, it's important to have all the players fresh".

But FA chiefs want to preserve the charm of the Cup as much as possible with the potential of a giant-killing as the fifth-placed team in the Premier League opposition visit a side just one place off the foot of League One. It is never easy to come back but he showed he loves football and loves to train. No, I think Rochdale can not play football there, too.

Steve Bower: "The added spice to the North London derby mix is the Champions League chase, and the first Wembley meeting in nearly 25 years since a Tony Adams goal won an FA Cup semi-final for Arsenal".

He is young enough to get even better if he did end up working with Pochettino, and has the versatility to play on the wing if required.

Rochdale chief executive Russ Green played down the issue telling Talksport there was "no fear of injuries" during the Millwall tie but said the club were considering laying down a new pitch.

"We will see. I haven't seen it yet because I always prefer to be focussed on the game and then see what happens in the next".
