FA Cup Third Round

|Fletcher (50)||Lucas Moura (61)|
With a break in the Premier League fixture list, Tottenham Hotspur made the trip to the Riverside Stadium earlier today to face Middlesbrough in our FA Cup third round clash.
Having lost the last game, travelling fans would’ve been demanding a reaction from manager Jose Mourinho’s side and, well, they didn’t really get one.
Despite dominating 70% of the ball and creating the far greater chances overall, we managed only four on target which matched them. After a goalless first half, it was the hosts who took the lead through Ashley Fletcher in minute 50 and we needed a Lucas Moura effort 11 minutes later to restore and at least ensure we remain in the hat for the fourth round draw.
We’ll have to see if we can do any better at the second time of asking when the replay is arranged, but having effectively gone with a full strength squad, few will be happy after that.
