Spurs overcame Middlesbrough 2-1 in the FA Cup third-round replay at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in a game that the home side, in the end, made it more difficult than it should have been.

Spurs raced into a 2-0 lead early in the match and had several chances to go out of sight, but squandered them due to some poor finishing.

The away side got one back late in the second half to set up a nervy finish, but the Lilywhites managed to hold onto the win and earned progression into the next round where they will be taking on Southampton.

The major positive from the game, according to many Spurs fans, was the performance of Japhet Tanganga.

The defender, who impressed in his Premier League debut against Liverpool last weekend, kept his place in the side and repaid Mourinho’s faith with yet another fabulous display.

Tanganga was quite solid defensively and was a constant threat getting forward from right-back. On the back of that performance, some fans were convinced that the 20-year-old has a bright future at the club.

While Tangaga proved against Liverpool that he could read the game well and defend well in one vs one situations, he showed today that he also has the energy to get up and down the pitch for the entire 90 minutes. While it is still early days, Tangaga’s versatility is really exciting to see.
