There is nothing like a London derby, and even better when you combine that with a cup game! Both of these sides will fancy their chances of making a Wembley appearance this year, but Spurs might be about to take their foot off the gas with the pressures of Europa League football and a Premier League title charge.
The Lilywhites have been in stellar form this season and Pochettino took the opportunity to rest many of his key players on Thursday night, with Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris the biggest names to take a rest for the trip to Florence.
The question is, are we going to be treated to another controversial Adebayor celebration as he prepares to face another one of his former clubs?
Or could Pardew’s side be about to face another defeat as their dismal form continues?
Its an all Premier League tie, but we could be about to be bored to tears in a dire weekend for the Cup.
#CPFC XI: Hennessey; Ward, Dann, Delaney (c), Kelly; Zaha, Cabaye, Ledley, Mutch; Wickham, Adebayor.
