Stat Attack: Tottenham vs Rochdale

Dele Alli

Spurs have won each of their last eight FA Cup replays, last being eliminated in 2007 to eventual winners Chelsea in the quarter-final stage. 

Rochdale have only taken a top-flight side to replay once in the FA Cup, drawing twice against Norwich in the 1976 third round, with Dale losing 2-1 in the second replay. 

Tottenham are unbeaten in their last 13 games in all competitions at Wembley since losing to West Ham in the fourth round of the EFL Cup (W11 D2).

Rochdale will be visiting Wembley for the first time since May 2008 when facing Stockport in a fourth-tier play-off final, losing 2-3 to Stockport during Keith Hill’s first spell with the club. 

Mauricio Pochettino has never lost to a side from a lower division than the Premier League as a manager in English football (P19 W16 D3 L0). 

Dele Alli could be the first player in Spurs’ history to score in the top-flight, League Cup, FA Cup and European Cup/Champions League in the same season. 

Ian Henderson has scored six goals in the FA Cup this season; only Will Grigg has bagged more (seven).

Harry Kane has scored eight goals in his last six FA Cup games for Tottenham Hotspur.
