FA Cup: Tottenham leave it late to see off Wycombe

Ndombele came off the bench to score twice late on

Harry Winks and Tanguy Ndombele scored late goals as Tottenham overcame a stubborn and spirited Wycombe side to progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Wycombe, bottom of the Championship, had stunned their Premier League opponents when Fred Onyedinma slotted in the opener midway through the first half.

But Gareth Bale marked a rare start with the equaliser just before half-time, hooking in Lucas Moura’s cross.

Tottenham upped the pressure in the second half but Wycombe repelled numerous attacks as they looked set to take the game to extra time before Winks curled home to give Spurs the lead with minutes to go.

Ndombele ensured there would be no late drama when he finished from close range and then stabbed home a fourth in injury time to set Tottenham up with a fifth-round tie at Everton.
