Tottenham Hotspur has reached the fourth round of the FA Cup, which will hit Southampton later this month. The replay against Middlesbrough was won 2-1 by hits from the Argentines Giovani Lo Celso and Erik Lamela.
After fifteen minutes of play, the game seemed to be decided. Lo Celso benefited from a mistake by Middlesbrough goalkeeper Tomás Mejías and Lamela later scored a left.
Tottenham got more chances in the remainder of the first half. Japhet Tanganga, just before half time, shot right wide.
Even after the break, José Mourinho’s team initially controlled the game against Middlesbrough, which is one level lower. Nevertheless, George Saville scored in the final phase for the visitors. That was it.
More than a week ago, the encounter between the two teams ended in 1-1.
Dutch goalkeeper Jordi van Stappershoef was under the bar at Bristol Rovers, but could not prevent elimination against Coventry City. The born Amsterdammer had three goals to his ears: 3-0.
