Tottenham XI vs Marine: Confirmed team news, lineup, injury latest for FA Cup

The largest gap between two opponents in FA Cup history in terms of league position hasn’t stopped Jose Mourinho from naming a “very good” Tottenham team to face Marine in the third round this afternoon.

Mourinho's Tottenham squad is strong enough to make wholesale changes from Tuesday's League Cup semi-final win over Brentford and still pick a formidable XI against the eighth-tier side, with Gareth Bale having asked to feature - but he only makes the bench.

With Bale – who earns a reported £600,000-a-week, while Marine's part-time players are paid on average £100 to £300 a week by the club – a sub, Carlos Vinicius starts having been largely ignored since the conclusion of the Europa League group stage, with Dele Alli and Lucas Moura in attack.

Harry Kane has been given a rare rest, with Heung-min Son named among the subs.

Mourinho had said young midfielders Jack Clarke and Harvey White, who are part of the first-team squad, would be involved and the latter starts.

Mourinho had promised the inclusion of just one Under-18 in his 20-man match-day squad, and midfielder Alfie Devine makes the cut.

Tottenham XI: Hart, Doherty, Alderweireld, Rodon, Davies (C), Sissoko, White, Gedson, Dele, Lucas, Vinicius

Subs: Gazzaniga, Sanchez, Tanganga, Reguilon, Devine, Ndombele, Clarke, Bale, Son
