Tottenham Hotspur fans don’t have long to stay disappointed with Sunday’s 2-3 loss at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers, as the matches are still coming thick and fast. On Wednesday, Spurs have the chance to make the FA Cup quarterfinals when they host Norwich City for the second time this season.

The injury list remains pretty bleak, and that list now includes Hugo Lloris, who will miss his second consecutive match with an unspecified groin injury. But let’s take the good news when we can — Ryan Sessegnon is back in full training after missing the past couple of weeks!

There’s also no mention of Erik Lamela, which is possibly good news, but honestly we just never know with that guy right now. I’d say, considering he wasn’t in the 18 against Wolves, that Erik will be at best on the bench and another late-match impact substitute, but who knows.

The FA Cup remains Spurs’ best hope for actually winning anything this season, so I would expect Jose Mourinho to put out a strong side at home against the team rock-bottom of the Premier League. You’d think this wouldn’t be a problem, but considering Tottenham’s record of late and the number of players in their M*A*S*H unit, I’m not taking this one for granted in the slightest.
