Stan Collymore predicts Tottenham v Wycombe
By Dominic Toner
Stan Collymore believes that Tottneham will overcome Wycombe in their FA Cup fourth-round meeting on Saturday.
Spurs host the League Two opposition at White Hart Lane and will start the game as strong favourites.
Mauricio Pochettino is likely to make several changes to his side for the cup tie and give some of his fringe players the chance to impress.
The north London club will be without senior trio Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose and Harry Kane, but they are expected back in time for the Premier League game with Sunderland on Tuesday.
He will also be without Jan Vertonghen and Erik Lamela as they remain sidelined with injuries.

Spurs are unbeaten in their last eight games across all competitions and have looked solid since their switch to a three-man defence.
They are still competing in the Premier League and Europa League this season, meaning that their FA Cup run could be perceived as a lesser priority.
Pochettino’s side dispatched Championship opposition Aston Villa at home in the last round of the competition and have earned another favourable draw.
The Wycombe players will be looking to cause a major cup upset, but Spurs should still have enough in their squad to progress.
Emerging talents Cameron Carter-Vickers and Harry Winks are among those youngster expected to get the chance to impress in the first-team.
In other Tottenham news, the club are close to completing a mystery transfer deal.
