Tottenham supporters have been in high spirits in the Transfer Tavern in the last few hours after seeing their side book their place in the last 16 of the FA Cup courtesy of a 2-0 win over League Two outfit Newport County in a fourth round replay at Wembley on Wednesday.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men were fortunate to earn another chance at beating Michael Flynn’s side following a 1-1 draw at Rodney Parade last month, but went into Wednesday’s clash having beaten Manchester United and drawn with Liverpool in their previous Premier League outings. And Spurs were rarely in trouble at the national stadium on Wednesday as an own goal from Dan Butler as well as an Erik Lamela strike sealed a routine victory for the North London outfit, booking them a place in the fifth round where they will face Rochdale.
Thus, there have been many happy Tottenham fans in the Tavern in recent times, several of whom are hoping their team can continue their fine form when they host Arsenal in the North London derby on Saturday.
Manager Pochettino played a strong team against Newport on Wednesday night, one which included the return of centre-back Toby Alderweireld following a lengthy time out of the side through injury.
The Belgium international was hauled off against Real Madrid back in November with a hamstring problem and has been out of the side ever since, missing a total of 16 Premier League matches, as well as their final two Champions League group games.
Nonetheless, the defender returned to first team action against Flynn’s side last night, and many Spurs fans took to Twitter with a big message for the 28-year-old…
