Spurs will be doing their very best to avoid a major FA Cup upset when they welcome League Two Wycombe to White Hart Lane in the fourth round.

Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld and Harry Kane are all out for this one, but Mauricio Pochettino is hopeful that all three will be able to return against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Tuesday. Erik Lamela and Jan Vertonghen are the only slightly longer-term absentees. Here is your Spurs predicted line-up to face Wycombe on Saturday.

GK: Michel Vorm

This change I don’t think will happen due to the two Hugo Lloris howlers last week at Manchester City, but on the principle that Vorm seems to play all of the EFL Cup and FA Cup ties.

RB: Kieran Trippier

I think another chance will come here for Kieran Trippier. His performance at Watford was something special, and he was solid against Aston Villa in the previous round.

CB: Cameron Carter-Vickers

Carter-Vickers was another one to have a solid game in the last round against Aston Villa at White Hart Lane. I think he should be able to get another ninety minutes under his belt here.

CB: Kevin Wimmer

He played on the left of a back three in place of the injured Jan Vertonghen against Manchester City, and if I am being honest, he looked out of his depth. Having said that, I think he will start here against Wycombe.

LB: Ben Davies

The injury to Danny Rose, which hopefully will not be too serious, give Ben Davies the go ahead to start in this one. I can’t remember the last bad performance from Davies in any competition, and I expect another strong one here.

CDM: Harry Winks

Harry Winks has been playing really well in recent weeks, and he had a real positive impact on the game against Manchester City last Saturday. He is a quality player, and would be starting every week if it wasn’t for the form of Mousa Dembele and Victor Wanyama.

CDM: Victor Wanyama

The sale of Tom Carroll to Swansea leaves Spurs just a little short of options in the defensive midfield when it comes to rotation. So, for me, Wanyama will be one of only two to keep his place from the draw at the Etihad last weekend.
