  • Spurs equalise at Newport County

Steve Davies lashed home an injury-time equaliser for the League One side at Spotland to force a replay at Wembley for a place in the last eight of the competition.

Going forward, Pochettino has tinkered with his attack as Fernando Llorente comes in for marksman Harry Kane, while Moussa Sissoko occupies a forward role, with Alli, Eriksen, Lamela and Kane all given a well-deserved rest after their midweek draw with Juventus.

There's been some hustle and bustle about the pitch at Spotland, freshly relaid as it happens, but we're all set now and Tottenham can not say they haven't been warned in their cup run so far.They came *mighty* close to falling flat at Newport, That Man Harry Kane saving them late on, and it's hard to see Mauricio Pochettino countenancing a repeat of that performance - where he felt their attitude hadn't been quite right. "We have another opportunity to get to the quarterfinal".

"The FA Cup is magic".

Without further delay, read on for five key storylines to watch as Spurs try to advance in the FA Cup today.

Dale's composure and tenacity looked to have been outdone by greater top-flight nous in the second half as Lucas Moura capped his full Spurs debut with a well-taken goal, before Dele Alli was fouled in the box and Kane stepped up to smash home and quieten the ground at which he made his senior bow seven years ago. "For me, it will be a tougher game than Juventus", he said. United's midfielder Paul Pogba missed the game due to illness.

I particularly liked a moment in Germany , when Spencer and Anthony are at the location of the bunker where Hitler killed himself. Certain characters bring up their faith so infrequently that when they do, it feels awkwardly wedged in and somewhat confusing.

The Lily Whites wasted no time after the restart to try and get back in the game, and Harry Winks who was partly responsible for them conceding, took a hopeful shot from range which Lillis saved easily.

Defeat always seemed likely for West Brom, who are bottom of the Premier League and sacked their chairman and chief-executive on Tuesday. "But I will be a little bit upset if we are not able to keep the same level of motivation".

Evans could do nothing to stop Southampton taking the lead through Wesley Hoedt on 11 minutes, with Dusan Tadic adding the second after the interval.

There was never much chance of that with Brighton's record signing Locadia scoring with his first shot on target after 15 minutes and Leicester City loanee Leonardo Ulloa, who is in his second spell with the Seagulls, rounding off the win after Connor Goldson netted his first goal in nearly two years.

Whichever club wins this last-16 tie will face either Sheffield Wednesday or Swansea, who will also need a replay after Saturday's goalless draw at Hillsborough. Jonson Clarke-Harris scored Coventry's consolation.
