Tottenham v Millwall preview: Spurs prepare for last FA Cup game at White Hart Lane
Last Updated: 12/03/17 4:12pm
Tottenham are preparing for their final FA Cup fixture at White Hart Lane as they host Sky Bet League One side Millwall in the quarter-finals on Sunday (kick-off 2pm).
Spurs have already played all their European fixtures at Wembley this season, and could make it there again if they overcome a Millwall side that have already knocked out three Premier League sides on their way to the last eight.
Mauricio Pochettino's side, however, could make it to the semi-finals of the FA Cup without facing Premier League opposition, having knocked out Aston Villa, Wycombe and Fulham so far.
Pochettino has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the game.
Danny Rose remains out with a knee problem, while Erik Lamela, who has not played since October, is still feeling pain in his hip. Rose's absence means Ben Davies is likely to continue at left-back.
Millwall goalkeeper Jordan Archer faces a race against time to be fit to face his former club Tottenham. Archer is rated 40-60 by Lions manager Neil Harris to play as he bids to overcome a groin injury.
Otherwise Harris has a fully-fit squad to choose from, with Tom King ready to continue between the sticks should Archer miss out.
The last time Tottenham played Millwall in the FA Cup, they went on to lift the trophy that year (1966/67).
The Lions are winless in their last 13 games in all competitions v Tottenham, last beating them in April 1939 (D3 L10).
This is Tottenham's first appearance in the sixth round since 2011/12, being knocked out in the semi-final by Chelsea that year. They've progressed from their last two ties at this stage, having lost the previous three.
Harry Kane scored a hat-trick against Fulham in the last round. The former Millwall loanee has netted 20 goals in his last 22 London derbies in all competitions for Tottenham Hotspur.
Spurs have progressed from 13 of their last 14 FA Cup ties against teams from lower down the pyramid.
Millwall have kept four clean sheets in their five FA Cup games this season, conceding twice v Braintree Town in round two.
Tottenham have won 10 of their last 13 FA Cup games contested at White Hart Lane (D1 L2).
Paul Merson's prediction
Millwall have been going really well in League One and they have let in just one goal in their last 10 matches. That's good going. They'll certainly make it hard for Spurs but Mauricio Pochettino's side have been on fire recently, especially at home. Millwall have got to find a way to stop Harry Kane, who has scored eight goals in his last four matches. I can't see it happening though, so I'm going for a 3-1 home win.
PAUL PREDICTS: 3-1 (10/1 with Sky Bet)
Tottenham are just 1/6 with Sky Bet to see off 16/1 outsiders Millwall within 90 minutes, while the Lions are 6/1 to take the tie to extra-time.
Sky Bet go 12/1 on the tie to be settled on penalties while either side to progress in extra-time is a 11/1 chance. Harry Kane is the favourite in the first goalscorer market at just 2/1 while Lee Gregory is considered the visitors' main threat at 11/1.
