Tottenham all but have up their chances of winning one cup in midweek as they were eased aside in the League Cup semi-final first leg by Chelsea. Will Antonio Conte see a reaction here?

Alli to star for Spurs
We're taking a bit of a different approach with this game in terms of predictions largely because most Tottenham to win odds are pretty poor – even when factoring in handicaps etc. Instead, we are throwing out a couple of scorer tips. First up Dele Alli. Alli was lighting the world up a few years ago but it now looks like Conte is yet another coach that is unconvinced he deserves to be a key player. He'll play here though and likely as one of the more experienced heads in the team. In this sort of game, he should boss things and it would not be a shock to see him score.
Stockton to give Morecambe something to celebrate
Morecambe might be long shots to win this game but if you saw Tottenham's display against Chelsea in the week you would probably cite their defensive work as shambolic. It's highly likely they'll give up a chance or two to Morecambe and, if one falls to Cole Stockton, he may well make them pay. The former Tranmere man bagged a brace last time out and has hit 15 league goals so far this season; that's an impressive return in a team that is hardly carving teams apart week in, week out.

If you're a lower league club that make it to the third round of the FA Cup then there will be few ties that take your fancy more than an away trip to Tottenham. Can Morecambe make it an even more special occasion by getting a result? Probably not but what a day out for their fans.

Morecambe Predicted Lineup

Predicted lineup – Letheren, McLauglin, O'Connor, Gibson, Leigh, McLoughlin, Diagouraga, McCalmont, Ayunga, Stockton, Gnahoua
