Tottenham vs Coventry: FA Cup Preview and Prediction

Tottenham vs Coventry

FA Cup

Kick Off: 15:00

Saturday, 5th January 2013

Tottenham are clear favorites to win and advance into next round but Coventry will try to disappoint them at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham will be welcoming back duo Scott Parker and Benoit Assou Ekotto into their lineup after both were passed fit after long injury break. Spurs boss Andre Villas Boas will look to rotate the squad following busy festive season so we can expect some changes in their lineup. On the other hand, Coventry will be without the League One top scorer David McGoldrick who finished his loan spell at “Sky Blues with 17 goals and has moved on loan to Ipswich Town.

Scott Parker might make his first start of the season.

Probable Lineup:

Tottenham:

Friedel; Ekotto, Gallas, Caulker, Naughton; Parker, Huddlestone; Bale, Falque, Sigurdsson; Adebayor

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Coventry:

Murphy; Clarke, Edjenguele, Wood, Christie; Baker, Jennings, Moussa, Barton; McSheffery; Ball

Foration: 4-4-1-1

Coventry:W-D-W-W-L

These sides last met on 2003 in League Cup encounter and Spurs won 3-0 away from home. The last 6 games they have met has been dominated by Tottenham with five wins and one loss. Both the teams have average of more than 2.5 goals in last 4 FA Cup fixtures so we can expect a similar game here. Also, Coventry City have lost eight and won just two of their 13 clashes with top flight sides in the FA Cup.

Prediction:

AVB and his team will have a go at Coventry and with their highest goalscorer being unavailable and no other strikers scoring goals we can exoect an easy win for North London outfit.
