Wycombe Wanderers striker Paris Cowan-Hall films his team mates watching the FA Cup draw

Tottenham remained in the hunt for three different trophies this season after they managed a 2-0 win over Aston Villa. Even the manager Mauricio Pochettino opted to rotate in a number of positions, Spurs managed to retain their desire and hunger that led them to a comfortable victory. Ben Davies and Heung-Min Son scored both goals in the second half to give Spurs passage into the fourth round of the competition. They would be up against Wycombe Wanderers from League Two. It is a game which has already raised expectations amongst Wycombe players and fans alike.

Even though a trip to Anfield or Old Trafford would rank as one of the ultimate dreams of a lower-league opposition in the FA Cup, Spurs could join the illustrious list sooner rather than later. After having come close to winning the title last season, the club are once again at it by moving within seven points of the leaders Chelsea following the win against the blues a week ago. A trip to White Hart Lane is one of the cherished moments already, as the iconic ground will be making way for a brand-new 60,000 seater stadium.

Wycombe already have recalled memories of their incredible cup run in the 2000-01 season. They managed to reach the semifinals of the FA Cup back then. It would be extremely difficult to achieve a similar result this time around partly because they are up against Spurs. Mauricio Pochettino’s team have been in superb form over the last few weeks, and it was aptly demonstrated in the 2-0 win over Chelsea. Wycombe will be given little chance of success, but the League Two opposition will be aware that this is the FA Cup and nothing can be taken for granted.

The League Two side are drawn away to Tottenham Hotspur, sparking wild celebrations

After having seen Spurs struggled to open the scoring against Villa until the 70th minute, Wycombe will be reasonably confident ahead of their match against the Premier league’s title chasers.

In order to receive the game against Spurs, Wycombe also had to go down the tough road. They managed to beat Stourbridge 2-1 with a late goal from Adebayo Akinfenwa helping them seal a place in the fourth round of the competition. Samuel Wood have given Wycombe the lead in the 47th minute before Dan Scarr came back to equalise in stunning fashion in the 70th minute. Undoubtedly, form at home played a major role in ensuring that Wycombe managed to creep as to the finishing line. Without the assistance from the home crowd, Wycombe will have their work cut out against top opposition like Tottenham.
