Newport County vs Tottenham Hotspur: FA Cup fourth round

The Exiles shocked 1972 winners Leeds United in the last round, sandwiching that upset in between three successive 2-1 wins in League Two.

The North Londoners made it to this stage of the competition, after beating AFC Wimbledon 3-0 at the Wembley Stadium.

Tottenham Hotspur will face-off against Newport County this evening.

Spurs have been title contenders in the Premier League over the last couple of seasons but have not won a trophy since their League Cup triumph in the 2007/08 season.

Harry Winks (ankle), and Danny Rose (knee) are unlikely to be risked though they have not officially been ruled out completely, while Christian Eriksen and Hugo Lloris continue to recover from illness.

Even if Harry Kane is given a well-earned rest, the visitors to Rodney Parade should have enough ammunition in their attack to blow the lower-league team away.

The tariffs on imported solar panels will be set as high as 30 percent, with a gradual phase down to 15 percent. As a member of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, Heinrich testified before the U.S.

Boss Mauricio Pochettino picks Michel Vorm in goal, while in defence he selects Jan Vertonghen and Juan Foyth as the central defensive pairing.

Pochettino has also hailed Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko, saying: "He is the only player who gives or provides balance in those transitions - offensive to defensive, defensive to offensive - in the team". Kieran Trippier and Kyle Walker-Peters are full-backs.

League Two side Newport County find themselves in the fourth round of FA Cup for the first time in 41 years.

Apart from one solid display against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League, there has been very little from the 32-year old to make him stand out.

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.
