Match preview: Tottenham Hotspur v Morecambe

8 January 2022

The Shrimps are in Emirates FA Cup action this weekend when they travel to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday 9 January to take on Spurs in the Third Round of the competition.

Morecambe come into the game on the back of last Sunday's epic comeback win against Doncaster Rovers. The Shrimps trailed 3-0 at half-time but flipped the game on its head in the second half with Cole Stockton’s brace followed by goals from Jonathan Obika and Toumani Diagouraga. 

The Opposition
 
Form Guide

The North London club find themselves sixth in the Premier League, a point behind West Ham in fifth with two games in hand and two points behind Arsenal in third. In midweek, Spurs were beaten 2-0 by rivals Chelsea in the first leg of their Carabao Cup Semi-Final. 

Antonio Conte was appointed Spurs manager at the beginning of November following the dismissal of Nuno Espirito Santo. Conte began his career as a player with his hometown club Lecce before going on to make nearly 300 appearances for Juventus between 1991-2004. The midfielder was also capped 20 times for Italy. As a manager, the 52-year-old has won Serie A four times (three with Juventus and one with Inter Milan), he also won the Premier League and FA Cup with Chelsea and the Supercoppa Italiana twice with Juventus.

Key players

England skipper Harry Kane is widely regarded as one of the world’s best strikers. The 28-year-old has made over 250 appearances for Spurs, scoring over 170 goals and is on his way to breaking England’s all-time goalscoring record. In the Summer, Kane was tipped to depart the club but stayed put in North London and has scored nine goals so far this campaign.

Heung-Min Son made his debut in the Bundesliga at the age of 16 for Hamburger SV. He joined Bayer Leverkusen for a club record fee three years later where he made 62 appearances, scoring 21 goals. The 29-year-old became the most expensive Asian player in history when he was signed by Tottenham for £22M in August 2015. This season, Son has nine goals and has four assists to his name.

Brazilian international Lucas Moura arrived in North London in January 2018 from Paris Saint-Germain where he won Ligue 1 four times and a number of other trophies. He came through the youth setup at Sao Paulo where he went on to make nearly 100 appearances, scoring 19 goals. Moura has made over 100 appearances for Spurs and helped them reach their first ever Champions League Final after scoring a hat-trick in the second leg of the Semi-Final. This season, the 29-year-old has scored five goals for Tottenham and has contributed with five assists.

Conte's pre-match thoughts

The Spurs boss said Sunday’s game against the Shrimps will give him a chance to rest some players.“I think for sure this game could be a good opportunity to make rotations and give chances to players who didn’t play so much in the last period.“But as you know very well, 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."It’s always difficult to think, to decide not to start with Harry [Kane]. But at the same time, in some games if we can take the risk, it’s right to take.”

Shrimps' pre-match thoughts

Manager Stephen Robinson says Sunday’s clash will be fantastic day for the supporters.“It’s something that, especially for the fans, it’s been something that they’ve waited for a long, long time, they missed out on Chelsea last year, they missed out on the vast majority of getting promoted.“It’s going to be fantastic for them to travel down and enjoy the day.“I’ve had nothing but positivity from people since I came here, even when we’ve had a few weeks previously before Saturday where we couldn’t get a win, we weren’t playing particularly well either, and I’ve had nothing but positivity from people around the town, from the supporters, from the directors.“It’s nice that they get their day in the sun so-to-speak and really, really enjoy the occasion.”

Meet the men and women in the middle 

Leicestershire-based referee John Brooks will be the man in the middle on Sunday. He will be assisted by Marc Perry and Natalie Aspinall. Gavin Ward will be the Fourth Official and Michael Salisbury will be in charge of VAR, assisted by Timothy Wood. 

This season, Brooks has refereed nine games in League Two, the Championship, Carabao Cup and Premier League. He took charge of his first match in the top flight on 1 December.

Brooks took charge of the Shrimps back in April 2018 when they drew 1-1 at home to Carlisle United in Sky Bet League Two.

Match Reports

Report: Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 Shrimps

9 January 2022

Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 Morecambe
The Emirates FA Cup
The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Sunday 9 January 2022
Kick-Off: 2:00pm
Attendance: 40,310 

The Shrimps came within 15 minutes of an Emirates FA Cup Third Round shock, but were eventually beaten by Spurs’ superstars. 

A first-half strike from Anthony O’Connor gave Morecambe a lead at the break, but with 15 minutes to go, strikes from Harry Winks, Lucas Moura and Harry Kane wrapped up the win for Antonio Conte’s side. 

In the opening minute of the game, the hosts could have been ahead had it not been for a fantastic, last-ditch block from O’Connor. 

After Ryan McLaughlin’s missed interception, Tanguy Ndombele took the ball forward and unleashed an effort that look destined to cause goalkeeper Trevor Carson in the Shrimps goal some trouble, but a big right-leg from the skipper denied him opening the scoring at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. 

It was the hosts again that came close to finding the back of the net, a corner was whipped into the box from Giovani Lo Celso which found Matt Doherty at the back-post, but he could only find the outside of the post with his stooped header. 

On the 33rd minute, it was be Diarmuid O’Carroll’s side who took the lead. 

A corner-kick of the highest quality from Alfie McCalmont found the skipper O’Connor to latch onto and guide home past the rooted Pierluigi Gollini sending the two-and-a-half thousand Shrimps' fans into delirium. 

It was O’Connor again who provided the next opportunity, his cross from the right was headed just wide of the goal by Greg Leigh who was up from the back. 

Half-time: Tottenham Hotspur 0-1 Morecambe

The first chance of the second-half fell the way of the visitors, a flick on from Ayunga found the feet of Stockton who turned his defender superbly, before flashing a shot wide of the mark. 

A string of Tottenham corners ensued from there with debutant Trevor Carson saving one at his near post as Dele Alli tried a neat flick at the near post. 

Just before the hour mark, Spurs old boy Jonathan Obika made his return to N17 in place of Jonah Ayunga. 

Just after the hour mark, the hosts came close again, this time an effort from Ryan Sessegnon was flashed wide of the mark. 

A host of changes were made by Antonio Conte after that, with the likes of Harry Kane and Lucas Moura coming onto the field, looking to influence the game. 

A jinxing run from Toumani Diagouraga saw him reach the Spurs box before pulling the trigger, however the midfielder could not recreate his heroics we saw against Doncaster Rovers last time out. 

With 15 minutes of the game remaining, the hosts hit back. An in-direct free-kick from Winks managed to evade Carson in the Shrimps' goal to find the back of the net. 

From there, Spurs grew stronger and managed to score their second goal of the game 11 minutes later. After Moura robbed McLaughlin in midfield, the Brazilian raced away and managed to round Carson and slide the ball into an empty net. 

Conte’s substitutions clearly worked, and with two minutes of the 90 still to play, England captain Kane made it 3-1. 

A drilled ball across the box found the feet of Kane, who managed to squeeze his effort round O’Connor and into the bottom corner of the Shrimps goal.
