Harry Kane’s second-half double helped Tottenham comfortably beat AFC Wimbledon to secure our place in the fourth round of the FA Cup with a 3-0 victory at Wembley on Sunday afternoon.
Mauricio Pochettino named eight changes to the side that drew with West Ham on Thursday evening but opted to start with Harry Kane and Fernando Llorente in attack.
Erik Lamela had our best chance of the first half when he was fed through by Kane and tried a spectacular lob but Wimbledon stopper George Long made a crucial save.
The visitors were camped in their own half for much of the first period, however they almost took a shock lead midway through the half when Nadjim Abdou’s 20 yard effort was tipped onto the crossbar by Michel Vorm.
The struggling League One side really held firm until the their resistance was finally broken in the 63rd minute when Kane converted Moussa Sissoko’s cross.
It wasn’t two minutes later when Kane added his second when a Kyle Walker-Peters shot was deflected into his path and he slotted home from eight yards out.
And on then on 71 minutes Jan Vertonghen added a superb third, his first since October 2013, with a delightful strike from 25 yards to ensure Spurs go on to feature in Monday’s draw.
