Tottenham Hotspur v Morecambe live stream, Sunday 9 January, 2pm GMT
Tottenham will be out to avoid an upset in the third round of the FA Cup when they host Morecambe on Sunday.
Antonio Conte was critical of his players after Spurs suffered a 2-0 defeat by Chelsea in the first leg of their League Cup semi-final in midweek. Tottenham were second best from first whistle to last, and although they could yet overturn the present two-goal deficit in the return fixture, they are now in a precarious position in that competition.
The FA Cup could therefore take on even greater importance for a club which has not won a piece of silverware since 2008. Spurs have now gone more than 30 years without an FA Cup triumph; Conte is a manager who understands the significance of trophies, and he is likely to take this competition seriously given his side no longer have any European commitments this season.
Spurs begin their FA Cup campaign against Morecambe. The Shrimps arguably have bigger fish to fry as they seek to avoid relegation to League Two, but their manager Stephen Robinson may view this tie as a welcome distraction. Morecambe are currently just one point above the bottom four in League One, having ran out 4-3 winners over Doncaster Rovers in a thrilling match last time out.
Son Heung-min is sidelined for the rest of the month and will play no part in this one. The likes of Harry Kane, Hugo Lloris and Eric Dier could be rested ahead of the second leg against Chelsea on Wednesday, while Cristiano Romero remains on the treatment table. Steven Bergwijn and Ryan Sessegnon are hoping to be passed fit in time to feature.
This will be the first competitive meeting between Tottenham and Morecambe. Conte will be looking to see a response from his players after the loss to Chelsea, although he is likely to field a very different starting XI to the one that took to the field at Stamford Bridge. Dele Alli, Tanguy Ndombele, Joe Rodon and Bryan Gil are among those who could come into the team.
Kick-off is at 2pm GMT on Sunday 9 January. See below for international broadcast options.

Use a VPN to watch Premier league football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps
A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.
Surfshark offers a great VPN at a fraction of the price
It's clear to see why Surfshark is top of TechRadar's best cheap VPN table – it combines an excellent product with bargain pricing, starting at £2/$2.50 a month!
