Newcastle facing long break between fixtures as fans wait on Wembley date

While most Tottenham fans expect Spurs to advance comfortably past Rochdale today, there are still a lot of intriguing storylines in the match.

"Some of our younger players may go on to play at venues like that, they're that good, but at the moment it's the pinnacle of their career so it'll be a huge day out for them".

In his 26th appearance for Tottenham, just his ninth start, the Spaniard had another unfortanate game in front of goal.

Spurs' makeshift side took time to find their rhythm and Rochdale snapped into them, Henderson shooting into Michel Vorm's arms after Victor Wanyama coughed up possession in his own half.

Harry Kane's penalty looked to have clinched it for the Premier League club until sub Stephen Davies levelled in added time to earn Keith Hill's side a replay at Wembley and a financial jackpot estimated to be around £500,000.

If he wants to be seriously considered for the position, the only way forward is to start winning trophies, and in the FA Cup this morning he clearly showed that's not his current priority. However, they have already had a warning in the FA Cup.

Tottenham drew 2-2 against Rochdale in their fifth round FA Cup tie on Sunday afternoon. So, what did we learn from the game last night?

The League One side took the lead over their Premier League rivals, only to fall behind with just minutes to go. Son had a shot saved by keeper Josh Lillis, and Fernando Llorente wasted the rebound, while Moura's electric pace caused Dale a number of problems.

Late-goal hero Davies joked that he had no choice but to follow in the footsteps of England's top striker Kane. His replacement would, of course, fare better via an 88th-minute penalty. Overall, the line up looks strong and full of quality, one that could take Spurs into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup this season.

If Tottenham win, the Newcastle game will have to be squeezed into their congested fixture list. "We're still alive in the competition and that's most important". This draw came after another unneeded replay against another League One side in Newport County.

"The FA Cup is magic", Pochettino said.

Diving has become a thorny issue at Tottenham after manager Mauricio Pochettino leapt to the defence of Alli following a booking against Liverpool for simulation, although he later moved to clarify comments claiming that he felt "tricking" an opponent was acceptable. I especially liked the way he deliberately lofted the ball over Rochdale's keeper to ensure he had no chance of saving it.
