Man United & Man City 'anger' over Tottenham's FA Cup draw

Spurs equalise at Newport County

Tottenham manager Pochettino had no complaints and stressed they could have no excuse with the newly-laid surface.

The third-tier League One side were the better team in the first half, exhausted in the second but then showed marvellous determination, and nous in the form of manager Keith Hill's canny use of substitutes like Steve Davies, whose equaliser in the third minute of stoppage time sealed the draw.

The winners of the replay will go on to face either Swansea or Sheffield Wednesday, who also played out a draw over the weekend. And goal number 6 in the FA Cup.

Kane made it 2-1 from the spot with five minutes left to play after Dele Alli was brought down in the box but substitute Steve Davies made it 2-2 when he fired in Toby Alderweireld poor clearance in the 94th minute.

- Spurs have lost just once in their last 22 FA Cup fixtures against sides from outside the Premier League; this was just the sixth time they have failed to win in those matches (W16 D5 L1).

Pochettino was not tempted to turn to his talisman early and with 59 minutes gone Spurs found their leveller, Moussa Sissoko playing in Moura, who confidently beat Lillis from 12 yards.

The majority of the Spurs side were deep in the Rochdale half when Harrison McGahey turned over play with a crunching challenge on Winks.

Moura, a £24.5 million January signing from Paris Saint-Germain, said: "I'm happy - my first start, my first goal".

"The performance deserved at least the opportunity to go to Wembley in a replay", added Hill. Tottenham, meanwhile, is coming off a North London Derby win in the Premier League and an inspiring 2-2 draw at Juventus in the Champions League.

The club is due to play Tottenham Hotspur, held to a 2-2 draw at Spotland yesterday, at Wembley on Friday, March 16.

With a replay looming, Spurs got an opportunity to go in front after Alli was upended. "We've got great team spirit and will never give up".

With the FA Cup now seen to be Tottenham's most realistic piece of capturing silverware at the end of the season, Tottenham's boss will be looking to play his strongest available side. This type of game is so hard and we have to be careful how we assess the performance.
