Tottenham Takes Care of Business vs. Newport in FA Cup Replay

Amond targeting Wembley cup replay against Spurs

Tottenham are now through to the next round of the FA Cup after defeating Newport County 2-0 at Wembley on Wednesday night.

Pochettino also used the match to give some of his fringe players a starting berth, having made no fewer than 10 changes from the squad that drew 2-2 with Liverpool last weekend.

Lamela, who was making only his fourth start of the season, netted his first goal for Spurs since September 2016, adding to Dan Butler's own goal as the hosts cruised into round five.

If Spurs beat Newport tonight - as most people are expecting them to - their reward will be an away tie against Rochdale in the fifth round.

Handing rare starts to Juan Foyth and Fernando Llorente while giving game time to those easing back from injuries in the shape of Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose, Harry Winks and Erik Lamela, he was pleased with how those who are not regulars contributed. This routine dismissal of Newport County has set up a visit to Rochdale on Sunday week and, if his players can negotiate the treacherous surface at Spotland, they could find themselves in the quarter-finals. Thanks to this FA Cup run, they have made £700,000.

Penguins Offense Spoils Marc-Andre Fleury's Return to Pittsburgh
Tonight was about Fleury facing his former team; so it's time to take a look at how everyone has done against their old teams. Though he missed time with a concussion this season, he's a major reason that Vegas leads the Western Conference standings.

Spurs, however, took a fortuitous 26th minute lead as Moussa Sissoko's low cross following Fernando Llorente's square pass struck Newport full-back Butler, with the deflection beating wrong-footed goalkeeper Joe Day at his near post.

But Mauricio Pochettino was vocal about how much they missed Lamela's guile and intensity while he was injured and, although this game was won as soon as he found the net, he did not stop snapping into challenges and harrying the Newport defence.

Mindful of Pochettino's determination to get his team to play out from the back, Flynn asked his players to press high at the outset and the tactic nearly yielded reward.

The result was, despite Newport's bravery and bad luck in the first game, never really in doubt after the first goal went in. Son's direct running was causing problems and the Korean's clever pass allowed the lively Lamela to skilfully place a shot past the advancing Day to extend Tottenham's lead in the 34th minute. I have gone for the line of the ball and it has taken a deflection. As if things weren't hard enough for Newport, Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli came on in the second half. Llorente again! What does he have to do to score?
