Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Tottenham will be looking to kick off their FA Cup campaign in style when they face Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park on Friday evening. Spurs are enjoying a very successful season, but they suffered a shocking 3-1 loss to Wolverhampton in front of home fans at the weekend. Mauro Pochettino’s men have slim chances of winning the Premier League title and they surely want to go all the way in the FA Cup this term. Top scorer Harry Kane is likely to be rested against Tranmere, but Pochettino has a number of high-profile players to choose from and we are positive that the Premier League side will prove their worth on the field. The Super White Army are fully focused on booking their place in the League Two play-offs, meaning that they would not be too disappointed should they happen to suffer a loss to Tottenham in the FA Cup round 3.
Highlighted Player (Ben Davies):
After graduating from the Swansea City academy, Ben Davies was surprisingly given a chance to shine as Neil Taylor suffered a difficult injured, and he grabbed it with both hands to become a starter in his first ever Premier League season. The Welsh left-back, who is also capable of operating in the heart of defence, continued with impressive performances in the elite division and one more strong season saw Tottenham Hotspur express their interest in his services and eventually secured his signature.
Davies has since been vying England international Danny Rose for a starting position and even though he has been playing second fiddle of late, the defender is seen as a great prospect for the future.
After initially playing at left-back in the Wales National team, Davies was moved to left centre-back position as Chris Coleman switched to 5-4-1 formation, and he has impressed playing alongside captain Ashley Williams and James Chester as the Dragons clinched qualification to the Euro 2016 finals.
