Tottenham face Fulham in an FA Cup qaurter-final replay to determine which side will play crisis club Portsmouth in the semis. Roy Hodgson's Cottagers are most likely still elated at their overturning of Italian giants Juventus in the Europa League last week, but they were brought down to earth somewhat following a 2-1 home loss to Roberto Mancini's Manchester City on Sunday. Spurs meanwhile, have continued their terrific form in pursuit of that all-important fourth Champions League qualifying place with a confident win over Stoke City on Saturday. The White Hart Lane club are currently unbeaten in seven games. After a dour stalemate at in the original tie, it is expected that the replay will be a lot more free-flowing as both sides go all out to secure that lucrative semi final spot. With Tottenham having a number of potent attacking players, they go into the game as favourites, and resurgent Russian hitman Roman Pavlyuchenko is 9/2 with Betfred to get the first goal of tonight's fixture. A win would mean a meeting with Redknapp's former club Pompey, whom he guided to the trophy back in 2008. Redknapp will have tough midfielder Wilson Palacios back from injury, but top-scorer Jermain Defoe is still suffering with a hamstring complaint and won't be in contention to play. The game is broadcast live on ITV1, with kick-off at 7.45pm. Odds correct at time of writing and are subject to change.
