Tottenham vs Newport County: TV channel, live stream, squad news & preview

Spurs failed to make their dominance count at first time of asking in Wales, but have a chance to set things right at their home ground

Tottenham welcome Newport County to Wembley Stadium on Wednesday evening as they look to right the wrongs of their original FA Cup meeting with the League Two side at Rodney Parade.

Spurs travelled to Wales boasting a strong side - with Fernando Llorente earning a rare start alongside Harry Kane at the head of attack - but it was not enough to seal a win at the first time of asking.

While Kane did find the net, it served only to cancel out Padraig Armond's opener in a 1-1 result, and the Welsh side will be relishing the prospect of turning out at the England national team's home stadium in London.

Newport currently sit 11th in League Two, while Tottenham's topsy-turvy 2-2 draw with Liverpool at the weekend sees Mauricio Pochettino's side remain fifth in the Premier League heading into the cup clash.

Squads & Team News


Position Tottenham players
Goalkeepers Lloris, Vorm, Gazzaniga
Defenders Trippier, Rose, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Sanchez, Foyth, Aurier, Davies, Walker-Peters
Midfielders Dier, Lamela, Wanyama, Sissoko, Dembele, Alli, Eriksen, Winks
Forwards Son, Kane, Llorente, Lucas Moura

Danny Rose and Toby Alderweireld have returned to training with Tottenham's first team but are unlikely to be rushed back into first team action. Harry Winks is certain to miss out as the 22-year-old continues his recovery from an ankle injury. 

New signing Lucas Moura, having arrived in January from Paris Saint-Germain, has yet to feature for his new club.

Pochettino chose to rest some first-team players in the meeting at Rodney Parade, only to bring them on as Spurs searched for a late equaliser. As such, he may choose to field a strong starting XI to gain early control and replace key stars as the game progresses.

Potential Tottenham starting XI: Lloris; Davies, Vertonghen, Sanchez, Tripper; Dembele, Dier; Son, Eriksen, Alli; Kane.

Position Newport County players
Goalkeepers Day, Bittner
Defenders Pipe, Butler, White, Barnum-Bobb, Bennett, Foulston, Reid, O'Brien, Demetriou, Jahraldo-Martin
Midfielders Labadie, Willmott, Dolan, Tozer, Owen-Evans, Collins, Osadebe, Sheehan, Hillman, Taylor
Forwards Amond, Nouble, Jackson, McCoulsky, Touray, Rigg, Hayes, Collins

By all accounts Newport boss Mike Flynn has no new injury concerns ahead of the clash and will likely choose a similar line-up to that which forced the Wembley replay.

Potential Newport County starting XI: Day; Pipe, White, Demetriou, Butler; Willmott, Tozer, Labadie, Bennett, Nouble; Amond.

Match Preview


Fernando Llorente, Tottenham, Ben White, Newport County

Tottenham have struggled to show consistency in games of late, highlighted in their recent 2-2 weekend clash with Liverpool. Spurs started very poorly, and Liverpool will be kicking themselves for not killing off the game throughout an easy first half at Anfield.

What will please Pochettino though was his side's determination to claw something back from the game, turning up the pressure in the second half to rescue a draw - not too dissimilarly to their first meeting with Newport.

Spurs fielded a strong side in Wales and had considerably more of the ball than their opponents, but seemingly got the balance wrong as they failed to make their impressive 65% possession count.

As Pochettino looks to recalibrate his plans for the sequel clash, Mike Flynn's side have some organising of their own to do, having lost two successive games on the road since they hosted Spurs in January.

Newport are likely to be in for a long evening at Wembley, but can look to Tottenham's own struggles as a glimmer of hope that a FA cupset is achievable.
