Midfielder O’Nien’s ball-juggling skills have gone viral but he will take a more traditional approach against Tottenham in the FA Cup fourth roundThe video of Wycombe Wanderers watching their name come out of the hat to play Tottenham in the FA Cup is quite something. Sitting in a conference room the players, half of them glued to their phones, let out an “ooooh” when Spurs’ number is called out. When Martin Keown announces the opposition will be Wycombe they, to use the technical term, go totally tonto.“You saw the reaction,” says the Wycombe midfielder Luke O’Nien. “Everybody’s looking forward to the game. Spurs are a great team to watch, their manager has a real influence on the way they play. I always try to learn from players and Mousa Dembélé is one I like to watch. He’s a very strong midfielder.
