Newport will be hoping to inflict a shock defeat against the Premier League side after they beat Leeds United in the third round of the competition.

Mauricio Pochettino's men, meanwhile, have generally been in impressive form, winning four out of their last five league games prior to a disappointing 1-1 draw with Southampton.

Newport are eighth in League Two and midfielder Paddy Amond is searching for his tenth of the season.

Newport County are hosting a top-flight side at home for the first time since October 1986, when facing Everton in a League Cup second leg match at Rodney Parade, losing 5-1.

Eriksen, Lamela, Aurier, Winks, Lloris are doubts, Alderweireld is nearly certainly out and Danny Rose remains injured.

Tottenham may have to do without Hugo Lloris and Christian Eriksen again as the pair attempt to recover from illness, while Newport could be bolstered by the returns of Joss Labadie, Ben White and Matty Dolan.

Kieran Trippier and academy graduate Kyle Walker-Peters will likely be the two starting full-backs with Juan Foyth and Jan Vertonghen at the heart of the defence.

Fernando Llorente may get some much needed game-time, but Toby Alderweireld remains out with a hamstring problem.

Victor Wanyama comes in to the midfield along with Mousa Dembele and Moussa Sissoko.

Newport County host Tottenham Hotspur in the fourth round of the FA Cup this weekend.

Spurs have scored at least two goals in their last six FA Cup appearances.

The London Evening Standard claim on their website that the Belgian worldwide will not play any part in Spurs' FA Cup tie against the League Two side with manager Mauricio Pochettino choosing not to risk him after his long term absence through injury.
