Indeed, Pompey´s League One form has been poor, with no wins in any of their last nine matches, although their cup form is much better with recent EFL and FA Cup victories against Stevenage and MK Dons.
On the road, Portsmouth have enjoyed a decent run, though, with just 1 loss in their last six away matches. However, a trip to North London to face a Spurs side led by Harry Kane certainly represents a major step up for the south coasters.
Still, Spurs' home form has not been great either, winning just two of their last seven with only one clean sheet kept during that period.
A first meeting between these sides in over a decade, Pompey actually won when these sides last faced off, in this competition with a penalty shoot-out victory at the old White Hart Lane back in 2010.
Of course, Pompey were operating at a higher level in those days, but despite their big underdog status will fancy their chances of pulling off the big “cupset”.
