Preston vs Tottenham – FA Cup: Live score, team news and updates
Preston vs Tottenham LIVE: Harry Kane is left on the bench as Antonio Conte’s men head to Deepdale looking to avoid an FA Cup shock as Italian attempts to guide Spurs towards first trophy in 15 years
Follow Sportsmail’s live blog for the FA Cup fourth-round clash between Preston and Tottenham.
Both sets of players are getting warm at Deepdale. It’ll take some doing!
Ryan Lowe’s in a jumper on the tele.
Again, Arnaut Danjuma is on the bench for Tottenham this evening following his loan move from Villarreal this week.
If you haven’t heard how this transfer came about yet, you should. The winger was due to join Everton, and reportedly shook hands with players, passed a medical and did the media shoots.
But the sacking of Frank Lampard appeared to change everything, and a late hijack from Tottenham meant he was instead on his way to North London. Staggering stuff.
A few more pics here from inside the Spurs dressing room and players arriving.
They have a job to do this evening.
I’ll give you a run down of the full times in the 3pm FA Cup games…
Blackburn 2-2 Birmingham
Bristol City 3-0 West Brom
Fulham 1-1 Sunderland
Ipswich 0-0 Burnley
Luton 2-2 Grimsby
Sheffield Wednesday 1-1 Fleetwood
Southampton 2-1 Blackpool
No massive shocks there, but a few replays to note, with Fulham having to go to the Stadium of Light and League Two Grimsby earning another game against Championship Luton.
Antonio Conte has mad seven changes to the side that beat Fulham in the Premier League on Monday.
Lloris, Romero, Dier, Davies, Royal, Hojbjerg and Kane have all dropped out, with Forster, Tanganga, Sanchez, Lenglet, Doherty, Bissouma and Sessegnon coming in. Got it?
Kane is on the bench, as is new signing Arnaut Danjuma.
Ryan Lowe has made two changes from the North End side that beat Birmingham 2-1 last weekend, replacing Ben Woodburn and Liam Delap with Ben Whiteman and Ched Evans.
Forster, Tanganga, Sanchez, Lenglet, Doherty, Bissouma, Bentancur, Sessegnon, Kulusevski, Son, Perisic.
Subs: Austin, Dier, Davies, Royal, Skipp, Hojbjerg, Gil, Danjuma, Kane.

Just on Spurs, former defender Sol Campbell has urged fans to get over his move to Arsenal in 2001.
Campbell made the switch under the Bosman ruling after his Tottenham contract expired in what was one of the most shocking switches in football.
He’s been speaking about the impact the abuse has had on him. Full story below.
Tottenham are obviously the favourites going into this one but don’t write Preston, who are going well in the Championship, off.
They’re managed by Ryan Lowe – an interesting character – and started the season slowly but they’re 11th in the table and have won three of their last four games.
They’ll fancy their chances.
Antonio Conte has made it known that he wants to play Harry Kane in every game he can, but the forward has been struggling with illness this week and might not make it.
He’s dug Spurs out of a few holes this season. They could do with him playing at Deepdale.
Welcome to Sportsmail’s live coverage of Preston vs Tottenham in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
A tricky one for Spurs and one they’ll want to come through with no issues. Preston have nothing to lose.
Kick off is scheduled for 6pm.
