Opinion: Predicted score for Middlesbrough vs Tottenham in the FA Cup

Image: SpursWeb

Tottenham Hotspur take on Middlesbrough in the FA Cup on Sunday as they look to make a better start to the competition than they did in the League Cup.

Spurs were drawn against Colchester United, the lowest-ranked club still in the competition at the time, before being knocked out on penalties by the League Two side.

With Tottenham over 20 points short of the Premier League title race, the FA Cup presents the only realistic chance for a domestic trophy this season.

However, Middlesbrough will be no pushovers, especially at home, as the Championship side have been in good form of late.

They find themselves in 16th in the Championship table, but have four wins from their last five league matches heading into the FA Cup tie.

I am predicting a 3-1 win for Spurs, with Heung Min Son grabbing two goals on his return and Dele Alli adding a third against Middlesbrough.

What do you think the score will be?
