Spurs star Kane denies Newport in FA Cup

Spurs will host League Two Newport at Wembley in between crucial Premier League games against Liverpool and Arsenal, an extra game they did not need in during a busy month.

A late goal from Harry Kane spared Tottenham's blushes as they rescued a 1-1 draw at fourth-tier side Newport County in the FA Cup fourth round.

West Ham were without several injured first-choice players and an upset always looked on the cards.

He sounded most alarmed about why his side had performed so poorly, even if the Rodney Parade experience - battling to avoid defeat in a tight stadium on a pitch shared by two rugby teams - really did look like a culture shock to some. Oh my, what an opportunity for Newport!

Captain Labadie was at it again moments later, winning the ball from Victor Wanyama before firing a 20-yarder at keeper Michel Vorm.

Nonetheless, the Spurs are still alive in the FA Cup and have a tough match with Juventus for a Champions League last 16 clash.

After 38 minutes, Padraig Amond scored the game's opener, when the Irish striker nodded home at the back post.

But Tottenham levelled in the 82nd-minute when Kieran Trippier's corner was flicked on by Son and there was that man Kane to bundle the ball home.

Welsh side Newport, a massive 72 places behind a Spurs side who are fifth in the Premier League, sparked delirious scenes at Rodney Parade when Amond gave them a 38th-minute lead.

Pochettino understandably decided against risking Erik Lamela and Serge Aurier, who had knocks, or Christian Eriksen - still recovering from a nasty virus - ahead of Manchester United's visit on Wednesday.

There is also a start for Fernando Llorente as Pochettino looks to take no risks with this tie. Their showing yesterday, at Newport County, was beyond dismal.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino kept some first-team players in reserve - among them Dele Alli and Son - but the presence of Kane, Eric Dier and Jan Vertonghen showed this was a game Spurs were taking seriously.

It will mark a momentous occasion for the League Two side as they will be hosting an English top-flight side for the first time in over 30 years and irrespective of the result, the club and the fans will cherish the occasion.

It is no surprise that the club is close to signing Paris Saint-Germain winger Lucas Moura for around £25 million. If we spent this week just looking at them and all that we'll be up against we'd probably be a goal down going out there.
