Son Heung-min could be Tottenham’s main goal threat. The South Korean is 7/2 to break the deadlock and 13/10 to add to his tally.

Lucas will lead the line for Spurs. The Brazilian is 4/1 to score first and 6/4 to score anytime.

Danny Ings is one of the most in-form centre-forwards in the country. Ings is also 4/1 to open the scoring and is 13/8 to net yet again.

Shane Long could parter him in attack. He is 10/1 to score first and 7/2 to get a rare goal.

Both Son and Lucas to score is 5/1.

Both Giovani Lo Celso and Dele to score is 11/1.

A statement victory for Tottenham.

On Sunday afternoon, they hosted champions Manchester City and finally secured their first statement Premier League win at the new stadium.

Hugo Lloris was the hero of the first half, saving a penalty from İlkay Gündoğan.

Then, on the hour, Oleksandr Zinchenko was sent of for a second yellow card, taking down Harry Winks.

From then on, only one team was going to win it and quick-fire goals from debutant Steven Bergwijn and then Son Heung-min saw Spurs to a 2-0 success.

That made it back to back Premier League wins for only the third time since mid-April 2019.

When José Mourinho took over on 20 November, they were 14th and 11 points off the top four.

Now, despite only three wins in eight, they’re up to fifth, just four points behind Chelsea who occupy fourth position.

Those two meet at Stamford Bridge in just 17 days time.

But silverware is what Spurs fans crave more than anything else.

Mourinho has won 25 major honours in his 18 year managerial career, the exact same number as Spurs have won in their 137 year history.

They are still in the UEFA Champions League and will host RB Leipzig in the first leg of their Last 16 tie in under a fortnight.

However, a repeat of last year’s run to the final is unlikely.

So, surely, the FA Cup is their best hope this season.

With a home tie against the Premier League’s bottom club Norwich City the prize, will Spurs book their place in the fifth round?

Will the Saints be marching into round five?

As for Southampton, their superb recent league form has their fans dreaming of cup glory.

On Saturday, the Saints were beaten by runaway league leaders Liverpool at Anfield in one of the most even 4-0s you are even likely to see.

As ridiculous as that may sound.

However, that was surely only a rare blip in, what has been, a remarkable turnaround.

On 14 December, they lost 1-0 at home to West Ham so had just 15 points after 17 games and were 19th.

Since, Ralph Hasenhüttl’s men have amassed 16 points from eight games, moving as high as ninth.

The weekend’s loss has them down to 13th on goal difference but only six points behind their hosts.

Southampton memorably reached the EFL Cup Final in 2017, losing 3-2 to Manchester United.

That meant they’d lost six of the seven major finals they’ve played in with their only trophy coming in this competition in 1976.

Will the Saints’ fans be returning to Wembley?

They’ll have to beat Tottenham first, just as they did on New Years’ Day.

Despite the fact this match disrupts their mid-season winter break, José Mourinho will still name a strong side as they bid to reach round five.

Hugo Lloris has started all three matches since returning from injury and is likely to keep his place with Paulo Gazzaniga remaining a substitute.

In defence, Ben Davies is still out with an ankle problem but could be back for their next game on 16 February at Villa Park.

Danny Rose has joined Newcastle on loan, leaving limited left-back options.

However, Ryan Sessegnon has been playing there recently and could come back into the team from the weekend.

Jan Vertonghen, who was also on the bench on Sunday, could also come in to join outstanding youngster Japhet Tanganga and Serge Aurier at the back.

Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sánchez would be rested.

In midfield, Moussa Sissoko is still injured but Eric Dier could return to the XI.

Giovani Lo Celso’s great form should see him keep his place with Harry Winks joining Tanguy Ndombele on the bench.

Further forward, Steven Bergwijn scored a spectacular half-volley on his debut on Sunday.

However, the Dutchman is ineligible for this fixture as he was still a PSV Eindhoven player when the original tie took place.

Fellow new recruit Gedson Fernandes made his Spurs debut down at St Mary’s and could return to the side.

He’ll join Dele and Son Heung-min in support of lone front man Lucas Moura.

Those three now have 27 goals between them this season as they continue to attempt to fill Harry Kane’s void.

Erik Lamela’s lack of fitness could see him remain on the bench; Troy Parrott is also unlikely to get a look in.

Will this XI be too strong for Southampton?

As for Southampton, Ralph Hasenhüttl is also likely to name a strong side.

In goal, Angus Gunn has made just two appearances since that infamous 9-0 defeat to Leicester on 25 October, both of which have come in the FA Cup.

He’s likely to, once again, be rotated in for Alex McCarthy.

In defence, they have a problem at right-back.

Cédric has joined Arsenal, his replacement Kyle Walker-Peters is ineligible to play against his parent club and Yan Valery is injured.

So, just as he did at Anfield on Saturday, James Ward-Prowse will fill in there.

Kevin Danso, who’s on loan from FC Augsburg, played there in the first FA Cup match but is unlikely to feature much more after continued poor performances.

On the other side, Ryan Bertrand is the undisputed first-choice.

They do have a decision to make at centre-back though.

Jack Stephens and Jan Bednarek is the first-choice pairing and both are likely to start again with Jannik Vestergaard remaining on the bench.

Maya Yoshida was loaned out to Sampdoria last week after eight years at the club.

In midfield, with Ward-Prowse moving back, Oriol Romeu will come in to partner captain Pierre-Emile Højbjerg.

Further forward in this 4-2-2-2, Stuart Armstrong is out with a hip problem. Armstrong is ahead of schedule, but was the one player ruled out by Ralph Hasenhüttl  in his pre-match press conference.

So, Moussa Djenepo is likely to get the nod, alongside Nathan Redmond.

Ché Adams, Sofiane Boufal who scored in the first tie and Will Smallbone, who scored in the third round, are the other options.

In attack, Shane Long is expected to keep his place ahead of Michael Obafemi as Danny Ings’ partner.

The latter already has 16 goals this season including the only goal in a victory over Spurs on 1 January 2020.

Can Ings, or anybody else, fire Southampton into the next round?
