Middlesbrough – Teessiders to repeat Man Utd heroics?

After they were responsible for the biggest upset of the fourth round, Middlesbrough attempt to reach the FA Cup sixth round for only a second time in thirteen seasons, and first since 2016/17. They will also be aiming to avoid a repeat of their third round exit to the same opposition two seasons ago, when the Teessiders were beaten 2-1 in north London in a replay having held Tottenham to a 1-1 draw at The Riverside.

The fact the sides were drawn to play again on Teesside is a huge boost for Middlesbrough’s chances of reaching the next round. Chris Wilder’s men have won their past seven Championship matches as hosts, recently defeating former top-flight club West Brom 2-1. However, that win was bookended by successive away defeats, the latest on Saturday against a Barnsley side previously bottom of the second tier.

Key Stat: Each of Middlesbrough’s past five league games have seen a minimum of three goals but also both teams scoring. Boro scored 2+ in all but one of these contests.


Tottenham Win & Harry Kane To Score



Tottenham – Kane to the fore once again?

There should be a noticeable spring in the step of this Tottenham team following Saturday’s 4-0 demolition of Leeds United at Elland Road. It was a result and performance sorely needed after falling into a slump, leading Antonio Conte to question his own position as manager after overseeing a run of one win and four losses in the five Premier League games which preceded the weekend’s result in West Yorkshire.

With no European commitments for the remainder of the season, the FA Cup represents a final opportunity into ending one of England’s longest and most talked about trophy droughts. Spurs haven’t made it past this stage, the fifth round, in any of the past three campaigns but their recent impressive victory at the Eithad over Man City was a demonstration in this team’s capabilities when everything clicks into place.

Key Stat: Both of Tottenham’s FA Cup matches this season produced the same 3-1 scoreline. After coming from behind against League One Morecambe, Spurs then beat fellow Premier League side Brighton with three of their six goals across the pair of matches scored by Harry Kane.

So streaky has Spurs been of late that a trip to Teesside cannot be taken lightly. Prior to Saturday’s 4-0 victory away to Leeds, Tottenham had lost four of five league games, seeing their bid for a Premier League top-four finish suffer a huge setback. Yet the quality in their ranks, with Heung-min Son and Harry Kane now officially the most lethal goalscoring combination in Premier League history, makes them favourites.
