Portsmouth originally received an allocation of 8,880 seats for the third-round clash. It could be a welcome flashback to 2010, when Pompey beat Spurs in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley – before losing to Chelsea in the final.

Tottenham are set to be without Dejan Kulusevski, Richarlison, Rodrigo Bentancur and Lucas Moura through injury while Yves Bissouma is available after serving is one-game ban during Spurs’ 4-0 win over Palace. Kulusevski has missed two games with a muscular injury and it remains unknown when the Swede will be able to return.

Richarlison suffered a thigh problem while on international duty at the World Cup and an estimated return date is suggested for 23 January but he will soon undergo another MRI to understand the extent of the injury. Bentancur was also a victim of a World Cup injury while playing for Uruguay and Moura continues to struggle with a long-standing tendon issue.

Following the departure of Danny and Nick Cowley, caretaker manager Simon Bassey will have the task of taking on the Premier League giants. The two sides have met 81 times across all leagues and competitions with Spurs winning on 27 occasions and Pompey winning 28 times. The last time the two sides met was during the 2010 FA Cup semi-final, when Portsmouth won 2-0.
