Wycombe vs Tottenham
England FA Cup
Date: Monday, 25 January 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Adams Park, High Wycombe.
Tottenham Hotspur will travel to Adams Park to take on Wycombe Wanderers in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
Jose Mourinho’s men have stormed past non-league side Marine at the start of their FA Cup adventure earlier this year. Reserve striker Carlos Vinicius starred by completing a hat-trick on the occasion. The Brazilian forward might likely be given an opportunity to make the starting line-up for this clash with another lower-division opposition.
Wycombe made their way to the second tier of English football after winning the League One play-offs last year.
However, this will likely only be a one-year spell of loan in the Championship for the Chairboys who sit at the very foot of the Championship standings after 23 rounds.
Gareth Ainsworth’s troops have won no more than 3 of 23 league games this term and are currently seven points shy of the safe zone.
Wycombe vs Tottenham Head-to-head
- This will only be the second ever head to head encounter between the two sides. The previous one also occurred in the FA Cup exactly four years ago.
- Back then, Tottenham completed an amazing comeback to win 4-3 in front of the home crowd.
- Wycombe had a two-goal cushion until the hour-mark. They also had a 2-3 lead before the 89th minute, but Dele Alli and Son Heung-Min managed to turn things around for Spurs in the stoppage time and thus prevent the replay.
Wycombe vs Tottenham Prediction
The quality is, of course, on Tottenham’s side and we would be stunned to see any other scenario but the away win here. Spurs have an important league match to come against Liverpool on Thursday which is why Jose Mourinho will almost certainly leave his main stars Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min on the bench for this cup tie.
In their absence, Carlos Vinicius could once again steal the show. We will back the Brazilian forward to score anytime at the 1.61 odds. Wycombe have the weakest defence in the entire Championship and we can hardly imagine them keeping hold of the Spurs here. The Over 3.5 goals FT bet looks as a decent shout at the 1.95 odds.
