Tottenham fans have wild conspiracy theory after club legend Gary Mabbutt draws team out against Man City in FA Cup

TOTTENHAM fans targeted legendary ex-skipper Gary Mabbutt with an amusing conspiracy theory after he paired his old club with Manchester City in the FA Cup fourth-round draw.

Not even Mabbutt’s status as one of Spurs’ most popular players ever could save him from online teasing after he conjured a tough home clash against the 2023 Treble winners.

Luckily for Gary Mabbutt he is already a fans' favourite as many weren't happy to see Spurs paired with FA Cup holders Manchester City

Tottenham have not won the Cup since Mabbutt lifted it aloft following a 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest in the 1991 final.

At the time it meant Spurs had triumphed in the competition a record eight times.

Since then, however, Tottenham’s biggest rivals Arsenal have moved onto 14, with Manchester United on 12.

And Liverpool, as well as Chelsea, now share third place in the all-time list – as Spurs have been stuck on eight for 33 years.

Mabbutt’s history-making moment was not lost on Tottenham fans following Monday night’s draw.

One cheeky fan posted: “Gary Mabbutt absolutely determined to carrying on being the last Spurs captain to lift the cup.”

Tottenham have gone without major silverware since beating Chelsea in the 2008 Carabao Cup final.

And most supporters were less than happy with the ‘reward’ for last Friday’s 1-0 third-round win over Burnley.

But one claimed: “Man City will be as cheesed off with that draw as Spurs. Away. At Tottenham. Their bogey team. It’s 50/50.”

And a neutral follower argued: “One of the worst draws I’ve seen… the only interesting game is Tottenham vs Man City”

That might be a harsh verdict as Chelsea have been paired at home to Aston Villa and National League Eastleigh could host Erik ten Hag’s United.

That’s if Eastleigh beat Newport in their replay and United see off League One Wigan.
