The previous tie between the two sides saw Southampton come from 1-0 down to clinch a draw at St Mary’s in January.

The winner of Wednesday’s tie has been drawn at home to Norwich City in the 5th round.

And Jose Mourinho will likely be very keen to progress to the next round as this competition, arguably, presents Spurs’ best chance of winning some silverware this campaign.

The Lilywhites last won the FA Cup in 1991 and they have not won any trophies since the 2007/08 season, something the decorated Mourinho will likely be keen to change in the near future.

Mourinho on Tottenham’s January window

Jose Mourinho would hold his pre-Southampton press conference on Tuesday.

A number of topics were discussed in the presser, one of which was the January transfer window.

The North London outfit brought in two senior players last month in the form of Gedson Fernandes and Steven Bergwijn.

Bergwijn would make his debut for the club this past weekend, scoring the opener as Spurs garnered a crucial 2-0 victory over Manchester City.

And when speaking about the window on Tuesday, Mourinho seemed pleased with both of his new additions.

But Mourinho also conceded that they lost a fantastic player in Christian Eriksen:

“We got a very good player in Steven, we got a good kid with good potential to develop in Gedson. I would say we also lost a fantastic player, because people cannot judge Christian for the last season, he has to be judged for six seasons where he showed in club and the Premier League his top quality.

“We found our balance there, lost a fantastic midfield player, got a very exciting attacking winger and a young boy in midfielder who can give us solutions.

“Without injuries, I would say ‘yes, good’. One player who gave six years is leaving but an incredible, exciting prospect is coming. I would say, ‘Very very good’. But we had these problems with important injuries and of course our squad in this moment is not as good as it can be. When our injured players are back, of course it will be much better.” As quoted by
