Tottenham Hotspur take on Middlesbrough tomorrow night in the FA Cup as they look to finally book their place in the next round against Southampton.

Spurs failed at their first attempt at the Riverside Stadium earlier this month, but were still able to rescue a 1-1 draw to remain in the competition and book a replay.

It is far from ideal for Jose Mourinho to have yet another game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium just days after the Liverpool match, but at least both games come at home.

The Special One fielded a team of Gazzaniga, Rose, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Tanganga, Aurier, Winks, Eriksen, Dele, Son, and Moura against the Reds at the weekend. The likes of Lamela and Lo Celso also came on.

He has now revealed that only one first-team star will be rested altogether for the Middlesbrough game, with that man being Toby Alderweireld, who recently signed a new long-term contract with the club.
