Tottenham XI vs Morecambe: Starting lineup and confirmed team news

The Spurs boss has rotated as expected ahead of a crucial run of high-profile January fixtures, with Harry Kane only a substitute for the third-round meeting with League One relegation battlers.

Bryan Gil starts for the first time since November 25 after coming off the bench in the last three matches, while Conte also picks Dele Alli, seemingly up front.

“But the FA Cup is an important competition and we want to try to go to the next step and it will be important for us to win the game.”
