Tottenham Hotspur will face Leicester City at White Hart Lane in the third round of the FA Cup on Sunday evening.

Former Arsenal attacker Paul Merson has told Sky Sports that he expects Tottenham Hotspur to win against Leicester City on Sunday evening.

Tottenham will take on Premier League rivals Leicester in the third round of the FA Cup at White Hart Lane.

The North London outfit will head into the tie as favourites, and former Arsenal star Merson expects them to progress to the fourth round of the prestigious competition.

“I will go 3-1 (to) Tottenham,” the Englishman told Sky Sports.

Tottenham have been one of the best teams in the Premier League so far this season. Mauricio Pochettino’s side have been very consistent, and one suspects that they will be keen on a long cup run.

The Spurs head coach could make changes for Sunday evening’s match, but playing at home will give them an advantage.

The first goal will be key. If Tottenham get it, then they are very likely to score a couple more and progress to the fourth round of the FA Cup with ease.
