Our tipster thinks that Mauricio Pochettino's men will have no problems in getting past the League One strugglers in Wednesday's FA Cup replay

Tottenham Hotspur can book their place in the FA Cup quarter finals with victory against League One strugglers Rochdale on Wednesday night.

Harry Kane’s late penalty in the original tie looked to have sent Mauricio Pochettino’s men into the next round, but Steve Davies had the final word, for his dramatic stoppage time leveller secured a replay at Wembley.

Latest odds

Spurs are red hot favourites to knock Rochdale out at the second time of asking and the Premier League side are priced up at just 1/8 (1.13) with bet365 to win inside 90 minutes.

The League One side are a chunky 18/1 (19.0) chance to claim a famous victory, while bet365 go 7/1 (8.0) that the tie remains deadlocked at the end of 90 minutes.

Team news

Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld are both set to miss out through injury, having missed the game at Spotland.

The likes of Lucas Moura and Fernando Llorente are also in line for a start as Pochettino continues to rotate his squad.

Rochdale’s Calvin Andrew is out with an achilles injury, with Scott Wiseman, Alex Dobre, Billy Knott and Sam Hart all cup-tied.

Easy for Spurs?

Pochettino’s men cruised to a comfortable 2-0 win in a home replay against Newport County in the previous round and bet365 offer just 1/3 (1.34) that Spurs win by at least two goals on this occasion

Similarly, the hosts are as short as 2/5 (1.40) to lead at both half time and full time against Keith Hill’s charges.

Goals at both ends

Rochdale have scored in five of their last six away matches and a goal at Wembley would certainly be one to cherish for the League One side.

Indeed, bet365 go 5/4 (2.25) that both teams are on target in Wednesday’s fifth round replay.

Tips and predictions

Better value, though, lies in backing Spurs to win comfortably and bet365’s 5/6 (1.83) quote for Pochettino’s team to win by at least three clear goals could offer decent value for punters ahead of this cup clash.

Odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.

Tottenham Hotspur (-2) at 5/6 (1.83) with bet365 for a 1.5pt stake
