Tottenham fans have taken to social media to rave over news that they could face either Sheffield Wednesday or Swansea City in the next round of the FA Cup.
The draw was held on Saturday evening, with Michael Owen and Shay Given picking out the balls to determine who would face off against each other, and following the Owls or the Swans, who played out a 0-0 draw to enforce a replay, it was Spurs who were second out of the pot to deliver the key update.

It means that Mauricio Pochettino’s men will face a trip to either Hillsborough or the Liberty Stadium if they get past Rochdale, with the two sides set to face off at Spotland on Sunday, while there will be no chance of a replay in the next round of the competition.
However, despite knowing that they will have to travel to support their side on the cup run, the Spurs faithful were delighted with the draw on Twitter.
Here, Football Insider has rounded up a selection of the supporters’ best tweets:
