TEAM NEWS

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has suggested Erik Lamela may not play again this season. Lamela has not featured for Spurs since October 25 as first a hip problem and then a family accident involving his brother kept him on the sidelines. Danny Rose is the only other injury absentee with a knee injury.

Former Tottenham stopper Jordan Archer is a doubt for Millwall with a groin strain but, that aside, Neil Harris has a full side to pick from.

MANAGER QUOTES

Mauricio Pochettino: "We are very focused because the game will be very tough. It is another London derby and we were watching all the games and they fully deserve to be in the quarter-finals. They were better than the Premier League teams. We are aware about that situation. We respect them. It is clear how they play, very compact, clear in their idea how they manage the game."

Neil Harris (via the BBC): "I'm looking forward to it. The test in front of us speaks for itself - it's a huge fixture. But, we've earned the right to pit ourselves against one of the best in the country. We've got nothing to lose and everything to gain."

WHEN IS THE MATCH?

Kick off is at 14:00 on Sunday.
