Spurs will likely need to improve on their performance in the previous round, when Harry Kane's goal saw them edge past League One Portsmouth 1-0, if they're to take a step closer to lifting this famous trophy for the first time since 1991 – although they haven't gone out to lower-league opposition since losing 2-1 to then second tier Leeds at this stage a decade ago. Preston – who beat fellow Championship side Huddersfield 3-1 in the last round – will be hoping things go better than in their previous meeting with Spurs: a 5-1 home thrashing in the 2009/10 League Cup. FA Cup winners in 1889 and 1938, the hosts have made it to the fourth round for the first time in five seasons; they last reached the fifth round in 2015.
