A win over the Toffees on Wednesday would see the North Londoners progress to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

Here’s all you need to know about the quarter-final draw (via Football.London):

When: The draw will be held after Wolves’ fifth-round tie against Southampton on Thursday at around 7.45 pm UK time. However, the timing of the draw may be pushed back if the game at the Molineux goes into extra time.

Draw details: The winner of Tottenham’s clash against Everton will be designated ball number ‘6’. Their opponents in the final eight will be decided based on the ball number they are paired with while the number that comes out first of any pairing will play at home.

Spurs Web Opinion

The game on Wednesday is not only important as it offers us a chance to qualify for the final eight but it is also vital that we continue to build some momentum on the back of our morale-boosting win over West Brom. Another defeat against Everton will seriously dent the players’ confidence.
