“Will be aiming to cause a cup shock” Michael Owen makes Tottenham v Wycombe prediction
By Bruce Grove -

Tottenham will face Wycombe on Monday in their FA Cup game as they look to progress in the competition.

After reaching the final of the Carabao Cup, Spurs will look to reach that stage in the FA Cup as well.

Wycombe isn’t the strongest opponents that they could have faced, yet it is a game that they have to be careful not to underrate their opponents and get a shock elimination.

Wycombe and Spurs have a bit of history with the Championship side nearly removing the Lilywhites in a classic cup game back in 2017.

They were 3-2 up at some point, but Spurs managed to defeat them 4-3 at the end of the day.

Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea was also held to a draw by Wycombe in 2007, and he would not want a repeat of that.

Owen says it is a game with some history, but he fully expects Spurs to see off Gareth Ainsworth’s side.

Owen said as cited by Mirror Football: “This is a fixture that has a bit of history.

“I remember a classic cup tie between the two when Spurs were 3-2 down approaching injury time, only to win 4-3. That was back in 2017 and you have to say Wycombe have done exceptionally well to come as far as they have since then.

“Now in the Championship, Gareth Ainsworth’s side will be aiming to cause a cup shock. However, Jose Mourinho will know all about Wycombe. His Chelsea side were held to a draw there in the League Cup back in 2007, so he’ll be aware of the threat.

“I expect Spurs to make changes again here, but with such strength in depth, I can only see it panning out one way.”

Words of wisdom from Michael Owen! Does the Wycombe team of 2021 really bear any resemblance to the team that played Chelsea in 2007? Will Jose not bother to analyse Wycombe because he knows all labout them! Utter tosh

Is Beast Mode Akinfenwa still at Wycombe? The thought of Sanchez marking him scares me
