Moussa Sissoko tells Tottenham to fight in FA Cup

By Molly Burke

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Moussa Sissoko insists that his team can not let their heads drop if they are to beat League One side Millwall in the FA Cup at the weekend.

After a narrow 4-3 victory over Wycombe Wanderers in the previous round of the Cup, Spurs will be looking to avoid any kind of upset in their quarter final match on Sunday.

Millwall have already knocked out Watford, Bournemouth and Premier League champions Leicester City and Sissoko believes the side will have to be at their best if they are to progress.

“Nobody will gift you the chance to win the game so we have to play our football, stay focused and play this game like we played last Sunday against Everton if we want to go to the next round,” he told the club’s official website.

Spurs currently sit second in the Premier League table after a tight 3-2 win over Everton on Sunday.

On-fire duo Harry Kane and Dele Alli bagged three goals between them and despite being tested by goals from Romelu Lukaku and Enner Valencia, the North London side managed to claim the three points.

“We can see in this competition that every game is very difficult, regardless of what league the other team is from,” Sissoko continued.

“The last game we played at home (4-3 victory over Wycombe Wanderers) was against a smaller team but it was very tough – we were losing, we came back, then they scored again and Sonny won it in the last minute but if you want to win this cup you have to fight to the end.”

Millwall are enjoying their campaign in League One, currently sitting in a play-off position as well as defeating three Premier League oppositions in the Cup, so there is no doubt that they will be full of confidence when they play their London rivals.

The Lions will travel to White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon with a 2pm kick-off.
