Late stages of Cup competitions are a familiar place to be; the last vestiges of a bygone era if you will, where winning was still our only aim. And a win here would get us to the semifinals of this competition for the sixth time in the last twelve years.

Pochettino has made just one change from the weekend, with Enzo coming back in and Mudryk dropping out. I guess Gusto, like Nkunku, isn’t ready to start yet. And once again, we have two goalkeepers on the bench, because reasons.

Minimal rotation by Eddie Howe as well, and also with two goalkeepers named on the bench. It’s all the rage. (And still only eight subs total.) Lewis Hall also only makes the bench, with fellow ex-Chelsea Academy standout Livramento preferred at left back.

A winner has to be found today.

Here we go!
