Non-league club Marine FC host Tottenham Hotspur in their upcoming FA Cup third-round fixture at the Rossett Park Stadium in Liverpool on Sunday.

The hosts saw off sixth-tier side Havant & Waterlooville to progress to the third round, where they face their first-ever top-flight opponent in Tottenham.

Spurs have already booked their place in the League Cup final and will be hoping to go all the way in the FA Cup as well.

Marine vs Tottenham Hotspur Prediction

Though we have witnessed many 'giant-killing' feats in the FA Cup over the years, it is unlikely that Marine will be able to achieve something of that magnitude in this game.

Tottenham Hotspur have started to regain form in the new year and are unbeaten in their last four games across all competitions. They have also scored nine goals in that period.

We predict a comfortable win for the visitors while the odds of another clean sheet also look good.

Prediction: Marine 0-3 Tottenham Hotspur.
