Should Tottenham Hotspur manage to book their spot in the fourth round of the FA Cup then they will face a trip to Southampton for the right to be present in round five.
Spurs were held to a 1-1 draw by Middlesbrough in their third-round tie on Sunday, meaning that the two teams will need to lock horns once again in London on January 14 to determine which side progresses.
However, a number of the capital club’s fans believe that their team will be heading out anyway as Southampton will beat them if Boro do not.
We gonna lose again then

That is not an opinion shared by everyone, though, as some of the fans believe that their side will get revenge on Southampton.
Indeed, Jose Mourinho’s side suffered a 1-0 defeat to the Saints in the Premier League on New Year’s Day, with Danny Ings grabbing the only goal of the match.
No clues whatsoever: Which seasons do these iconic Spurs images belong to?
Spurs have actually only won one of their last five matches in all competitions – a narrow victory over Brighton & Hove Albion at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Boxing Day.

Amid the negativity, one supporter called on the fans to get behind their team, insisting that they will take points off leaders Liverpool in the Premier League this weekend.
Well everyone is more miserable than me. Think Positive – we will ruin Liverpool’s run. I’ve said it beginning of December xx
