Tottenham expected 3-4-3 v Millwall: 27-year-old snubbed by Pochettino
By Dominic Toner
Tottenham are excepted to name an unchanged XI in the FA Cup against Millwall, meaning midfielder Moussa Sissoko is once again snubbed by Mauricio Pochettino.
Spurs host League One opposition Millwall in the FA Cup quarter-finals and are set to name their best available team.
The north London club are unlikely to claw back the 10-point gap to leaders Chelsea in the Premier League and the cup competition is their best chance of silverware.
Most top-flight managers have tended to rest players in the cup, but Pochettino is unlikely to do so in the latter stages.
Sissoko, 27, has been frustrated since his £30million move in the summer and will have to make do yet again with a spot on the bench.

Lloris is set to continue in goal and will be hoping to keep out a Millwall side that have already eliminated Watford, Bournemouth and Leicester en route to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
The familiar back-three of Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld and Eric Dier are expected to continue in defence.
Meanwhile, Kyle Walker and Ben Davies are set to offer the width in the wing-back roles, while Danny Rose continues to recover from injury.
Mousa Dembele and Victor Wanyama are expected to continue in the heart of midfield, meaning the likes of Harry Winks and Sissoko miss out.
Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Harry Kane are set to make up the frontline and the trio have been in sensational form this season.
