Rewind four years ago and it took an 89th minute Dele Alli, and a 97th Son Heung-min goal for Tottenham to spare their blushes at home to Wycombe Wanderers in the FA Cup.
Now, we aren’t suggesting that the Chairboys have been ticking off the days on a dusty chalkboard, awaiting their revenge on Tottenham, but it’s a drop of history worth considering.
Since that thrilling 4-3 defeat, Wycombe have wandered their way up to the Championship and are a much better, more stable side than the one we saw back in 2017.
But, so are Spurs.
Jose Mourinho loves cup football and rarely comes unstuck against a plucky underdog.
Check out our top Odds Picks for Monday’s match including a tasty Long Shot!

Our Top Odds Pick – Draw at half-time 43/20 at Unibet
Wycombe Wanderers are rock bottom of the Championship, but have performed better than many expected.
Whilst that’s quite hard to comprehend, the Chairboys will be approaching Monday’s match with a “free hit” attitude – and a team that has nothing to lose should always be deemed a threat.
Goals have proved a big problem for Gareth Ainsworth’s side.
Just 16 goals in 23 Championship matches is sorry reading for the hosts, but with 11 men behind the ball at Adams Park on Monday night we think they can frustrate Tottenham… for a bit.
Our Long Shot – Curtis Thompson first player booked – 8/1 at bet365
Wycombe are expected to spend a majority of Monday’s tie defending, with holding midfielder Curtis Thompson in the firing line for quick Tottenham attacks.
In 2020, Thompson received five bookings in seven matches, and the 27-year-old may well mistime one or two challenges against Mourinho’s Premier League XI.
8/1 says that Thompson receives the first booking of what could turn out to be a spicy FA Cup clash.
