Tottenham Hotspur are somehow into the fifth round of the FA Cup after a 3-2 win over Southampton in North London tonight.
Spurs and the Saints came face to face again at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium after they could not be separated in the first tie at St Mary’s, thus forcing a replay.
Tottenham went 1-0 up on the night against the run of play when Tanguy Ndombele’s shot deflected fortuitously into the back of the net.
Southampton then had a two-goal swing either side of half time as Shane Long and Danny Ings each netted past Hugo Lloris.
However, despite looking as if they were down and out, a late ten-minute flurry from the Lilywhites resulted in a goal from Lucas Moura and a Heung Min Son penalty that swung things back in their favour.
Tottenham will now face Norwich City in the fifth round and some Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to react to the strange game.
Undeserved!! But delighted!! #COYS
