Rochdale vs Tottenham: FA Cup TV, live streaming

Rochdale sit rock bottom of League 1 and suffered a 3-2 defeat to Bristol Rovers on Tuesday.


The same night Spurs fought back from 2-0 down in Turin against Juventus in the Champions League. Tottenham now take two very useful away goals to the return leg at Wembley next month.

It was a night that demonstrated just how different these two teams seasons have been and Tottenham will be overwhelming favourites for this.

This is also something of an unknown quantity as it will be the first competitive meeting of any kind between these two sides.

Rochdale have lost their last six FA Cup ties against top-flight opposition, since beating Coventry 2-1 in January 1971.

Tottenham last won this competition in 1990/91 after beating Nottingham Forest in the final at the original Wembley.

Tottenham head to Rochdale looking to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals in back-to-back seasons for the first time in 16 years.

Fresh from a remarkable comeback 2-2 draw at Juventus in the Champions League, Spurs head to Spotland Stadium's newly laid pitch.

Rochdale's heavily sanded pitch was criticised following their fourth-round replay win over Millwall, prompting an angry response from the club before a new pitch was purchased.

Not since 2002 have Spurs made the last eight in the FA Cup in consecutive seasons, but are heavy favourites against the League One strugglers.

Team News

Tottenham forward Harry Kane could be absent from today's cup tie.

Kane, who has scored 33 goals this season for Spurs, is struggling with an ankle issue and was being assessed by the north London club on Saturday.

Elsewhere, manager Mauricio Pochettino has no other injury complaints, with defender Toby Alderweireld - who did not travel to Juventus earlier this week - declared fit and available.

Provisional squad: Lloris, Vorm, Gazzaniga, Rose, Davies, Walker-Peters, Vertonghen, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Dier, Foyth, Aurier, Trippier, Wanyama, Sissoko, Winks, Dembele, Oakley-Boothe, Alli, Eriksen, Son, Lamela, Llorente, Moura, Kane.

After drawing criticism for the playing surface following their victory over Millwall, the Dale have completely relaid the Spotland pitch for this clash.

With the untested turf unlikely to provide ideal conditions for slick, flowing football, the Premier League visitors may struggle to find their rhythm in attack - just as they did in that frustrating draw in Newport.

Having conceded just 14 goals in their 18 home games this season, Rochdale will certainly back themselves to frustrate a top flight outfit that has scored more than twice just once in their previous 13 on the road.
