Tottenham Hotspur v Cheltenham Town

It’s the third round of the FA Cup and Cheltenham Town are the visitors to White Hart Lane.

Due to the amount of games Spurs have played lately, Gareth Bale is among other first-team players are unlikely to feature in the game against the League Two club.

The Welshman may be among the substitutes, however, that won’t be known until nearer kick off.

Spurs have quite a big squad with many internationals, therefore should be able to field a side capable of beating Cheltenham. Of course, this is the FA Cup, and there’s always shocks, let’s hope there’s no surprises this afternoon at The Lane.

Update: The team sheets are in and Gareth is not among the starting line-up or on the bench. So today he’ll be having a well deserved rest with a view to the Everton game on Wednesday night.
