Opinion: Score prediction for Tottenham vs Middlesbrough in the FA Cup

Tottenham Hotspur are back in action this week, although sooner than Jose Mourinho would have liked after his side only managed a draw against Championship Middlesbrough.

Spurs and Boro faced off in the third round of the FA Cup earlier this month, but could not be separated on the day after a 1-1 draw.

Middlesbrough took the lead in the first half, only for Tottenham to take control in the second 45 and equalise through Lucas Moura.

Despite knocking on the door, Spurs were unable to grab the winner late on, thus forcing an extra match in the form of a replay.

Tottenham and Middlesbrough already know that Southampton wait for whoever is to progress to the fourth round of the FA Cup.

I am predicting that Spurs will get the job done this time around with a simple 3-0 win against the Championship side, with goals coming from Heung Min Son, Dele Alli, and Giovani Lo Celso.
