FA Cup Fifth Round Sunday Preview

There is only one FA Cup game on Sunday but it looks like it could be the best of the round as Rochdale host Tottenham.

Dale are looking to produce what would be one of the biggest upsets in cup history if they could take the scalp of Spurs.

Tottenham have their eyes firmly on a quarter-final berth, but they won’t be taking Rochdale lightly having been taken to a replay by Newport in the previous round.

See below for a preview on each game, including predictions from our own Football Insider Graeme Bailey and bet365’s Steve Freeth.
