When you think of Fulham Football Club and Craven Cottage, what do you

:00:50.:00:57.

think? The Cottage itself where John Craven grew up? Where the Queen and

:00:58.:01:03.

Prince Philip had their first ever date. Royal love blossomed. Our team

:01:04.:01:10.

contained George Best and Bobby Moore. Same team, same pitch at the

:01:11.:01:15.

same time. Then of course there at the fact we used to have an

:01:16.:01:18.

absolutely non-techie full colour statue of my good Jackson. Then

:01:19.:01:26.

there was the night when Fulham beat Juventus 4-1. Even I don't believe

:01:27.:01:30.

that was true and I was there! We are the plucky underdogs by the

:01:31.:01:34.

river, the West London team that always manages to find a home for

:01:35.:01:38.

classy, refined footballers. Johnny Haynes, March, cumin, Dempsey, Jamie

:01:39.:01:44.

O'Hara, Jimmy Bullard. And so to the FA Cup and Fulham have an amazing FA

:01:45.:01:53.

Cup record. We got to number 46 in 1975. Now we face Spurs and I can

:01:54.:01:58.

reveal that the score to date will be 3-1 to Fulham. Is that true or is

:01:59.:02:04.

that an alternative fact? Only one way to find out. Welcome to Craven

:02:05.:02:10.

Cottage and it is not fake news that Fulham are potentially 90 minutes

:02:11.:02:14.

away from a place in the Emirates FA Cup quarterfinals. Standing in their

:02:15.:02:18.

way are the Motspur Park eight time winners of the competition. --

:02:19.:02:23.

Tottenham Hotspur. This is one of the great venues of invisible, three

:02:24.:02:28.

seasons since it hosted Premier League football but Fulham believe

:02:29.:02:32.

they can return soon. Spurs are still in three competitions and have

:02:33.:02:37.

gone with a strong starting line-up. It has already been a weekend of big

:02:38.:02:43.

cup shocks with Lincoln City and Millwall's heroics yesterday so can

:02:44.:02:45.

Fulham spring another surprise? Joining us are the former Spurs

:02:46.:02:58.

midfielder Jermaine Jenas, former Fulham Joe Pugh Mark Schwarzer and a

:02:59.:03:01.

man who played for both teams and whose skill lit up the Premier

:03:02.:03:06.

League. What about that for control from Dimitar Berbatov? Berbatov with

:03:07.:03:14.

a gentle touch. Simply superb. Absolutely magnificent! So cool.

:03:15.:03:23.

There has always been a touch of magic about Dimitar Berbatov. You

:03:24.:03:28.

are very welcome, great to see you and to be honest, what ever you lack

:03:29.:03:35.

in skill you made up for in effort! Where does your heart stands today

:03:36.:03:41.

but a lot more Spurs or Fulham? I like both teams. That is why I would

:03:42.:03:47.

like it to be a draw so I can watch one more game. But I have great

:03:48.:03:53.

moments in Spurs the team who give me the scene to show my quality in

:03:54.:03:58.

England and I had a great year and a half with Fulham and scored good

:03:59.:04:03.

goals so both teams are in my heart. It is great for me. And the way that

:04:04.:04:08.

both teams played, it should be a good game. I hope so, I want to see

:04:09.:04:15.

goals. And in the end to have something to look at the game, to be

:04:16.:04:21.

good for the people who pay to watch this kind of team. That is how I

:04:22.:04:27.

used to play as well, to try to entertain. You certainly did.

:04:28.:04:32.

Jermaine, Spurs, a lot of thought about the FA Cup, some teams picking

:04:33.:04:36.

weakened teams but they have gone strong. And it is good to see. After

:04:37.:04:40.

the last couple of results, you get the feeling that their season is in

:04:41.:04:46.

the balance. It could slip away. A top result midweek and he will be

:04:47.:04:51.

looking to get his team act into form and the team he has put out

:04:52.:04:57.

also it is a genuine competition they can go and win. Best back into

:04:58.:04:59.

form. That is the one thing lacking for

:05:00.:05:05.

Pochettino, a major trophy. And for the club as well, you can talk about

:05:06.:05:12.

Pochettino being a great manager and this being a great team but they

:05:13.:05:16.

need to take that next step which is to win something. And 220

:05:17.:05:21.

appearances for Fulham for you, Mark, it is a great place to play,

:05:22.:05:25.

one of the classic grounds? It is, one of the only grounds left that

:05:26.:05:31.

has that atmosphere. Some great memories here and I've always

:05:32.:05:36.

enjoyed playing. This team is making progress, they play lovely football

:05:37.:05:41.

as well. They have had a tough couple of years after relegation

:05:42.:05:44.

from the Premier League, they lost their way a bit. A lot of different

:05:45.:05:48.

managers and probably bad decisions but they are now at a stage where

:05:49.:05:52.

things are turning around. They are getting a team out which is playing

:05:53.:05:56.

exciting football with a good mix of experience and young players coming

:05:57.:06:01.

through. Fulham's most recognisable player is their club captain, Scott

:06:02.:06:05.

Parker, who starts on the bench today also he is now 36 and has also

:06:06.:06:10.

played for Spurs in his 20 year playing career and we send Mark to

:06:11.:06:12.

meeting this week. You have been four years at Fulham,

:06:13.:06:24.

which has been a bit of a roller-coaster, what has it been

:06:25.:06:26.

like as a player in that time? To come out of the Premier League that

:06:27.:06:31.

season, and since then it has been turbulent, changes had to be made

:06:32.:06:34.

and the squad was decimated in terms of where we were. And that comes

:06:35.:06:40.

with relegation. A lot of people losing jobs, it has been a rocky

:06:41.:06:45.

road. Trying to adapt to the Championship, what is the best route

:06:46.:06:48.

out, do you spend again like Newcastle have done this year? If

:06:49.:06:54.

you don't, you are looking at three to five-year process. Fulham is

:06:55.:06:56.

renowned for being a family club, welcoming, that it still have that

:06:57.:07:03.

wonderful charm about it? It does, definitely. Anyone who doesn't know

:07:04.:07:09.

Fulham and has not been around it, the biggest thing is the Stadium. Go

:07:10.:07:13.

to the stadium and it will give you an understanding of what the club is

:07:14.:07:18.

about. There is a real charm, something about it, something very

:07:19.:07:26.

special. Sessegnon makes it three. Ryan Sessegnon, someone I have known

:07:27.:07:32.

since he was ten years old, I have watched him for a long time. How

:07:33.:07:36.

good can he be? Attitude will determine how far you go and the boy

:07:37.:07:41.

is first class with his attitude. He wants to learn, listens to what

:07:42.:07:47.

anyone says. And taking the technical side, he is obviously a

:07:48.:07:52.

fantastic footballer and that will put him in good stead. He was born

:07:53.:07:58.

in 2000, you are 1980, how does it make you feel?! Very old! I feel it

:07:59.:08:04.

every day I went out there at times! I'm not getting any younger. As long

:08:05.:08:09.

as I feel I can contribute in the team in any way and I'm having an

:08:10.:08:14.

input, I'm happy to be around but the day I don't feel like that, I

:08:15.:08:18.

will put my hand up and say, thanks a lot but I'm out. 1980 is a lot

:08:19.:08:27.

better than 1960! You have both played with Scott Parker, a really

:08:28.:08:33.

good professional. He is like Mr professional. If I lack in some

:08:34.:08:40.

professionalism, he was making it! Always first training hard, after

:08:41.:08:45.

training, staying and stretching and helping the boys in the team. I

:08:46.:08:50.

don't think anybody can say a bad word about him and he gives

:08:51.:08:53.

everything for the team. An important player today for Fulham

:08:54.:08:57.

will be Thomas Kalas who is on loan from Chelsea. A lot of promise. He

:08:58.:09:03.

certainly has and that is the one club, apart from Vitesse Arnhem,

:09:04.:09:07.

where he has found a home and he's playing every week. I had a chance

:09:08.:09:11.

to play with him at Chelsea, on his debut. There was a team meeting

:09:12.:09:15.

before the game and when Mourinho put the team up and said, you are

:09:16.:09:21.

playing, and he said, what better place in the world to make your

:09:22.:09:23.

Premier League debut than at Anfield. He asked Lampard where he

:09:24.:09:35.

played his debut and he said Coventry City. He said, this is the

:09:36.:09:40.

best place to make your debut. He doesn't lack confidence. And tell

:09:41.:09:43.

others about the young lad Scott Parker was talking about, Ryan

:09:44.:09:48.

Sessegnon. Like I mentioned, I have seen him since he is ten years old

:09:49.:09:52.

and watched him develop and he had always caught the eye and been very

:09:53.:09:55.

athletic and strong. On the bench today. There is a guy at the club

:09:56.:10:02.

who is the head of the goalkeeping Ekurhuleni was at Crystal Palace

:10:03.:10:07.

he is the goalkeeping coach. He is very similar if not better than

:10:08.:10:14.

Ashley Cole when he first came in. There are high hopes for him will

:10:15.:10:19.

stop and he has shown that he can adapt to be first-team very quickly.

:10:20.:10:24.

It is not often a high -- we highlight a player on the bench but

:10:25.:10:27.

it is good to see young talent coming through and let's hope he

:10:28.:10:32.

lives up to the expectations. Certainly also what Fulham have done

:10:33.:10:35.

is produced some good in players and this is one of them. Jokanovic, you

:10:36.:10:43.

know him well, what is he like? He was working in Bulgaria and

:10:44.:10:45.

everybody was happy with the job he had done and you can see he is very

:10:46.:10:52.

ambitious. From what I know and correct me if I'm wrong, but they

:10:53.:10:58.

changed the pitches at the training ground so it can suit the way they

:10:59.:11:02.

play, passing football, and I think the same as the pitch here. When you

:11:03.:11:08.

train, you are like in the game, you are used to the grass and how to

:11:09.:11:12.

pass the ball and stop the ball which shows he knows the small

:11:13.:11:15.

details can help the team grow up. It makes sense. Spurs almost became

:11:16.:11:21.

victims of a major shock in the last round. Wycombe Wanderers of League 2

:11:22.:11:24.

took them all the way at White Hart Lane. It is a day full of hope,

:11:25.:11:29.

expectation and pride. And it hits the bar. Pandemonium at White Hart

:11:30.:11:41.

Lane. It is a penalty. It is 2-0! That is in! Spurs are back in it.

:11:42.:11:47.

The bodycheck and a penalty. Spurs have turned this around. It is

:11:48.:11:53.

headed in by Garry Thompson! Wycombe Wanderers are back in front. Dele

:11:54.:12:01.

Alli! And Heung-Min Son has got the winner! Heartbreak for Wycombe

:12:02.:12:05.

Wanderers and Spurs go marching on. It was a little bit of a scare in

:12:06.:12:09.

the last round against Wycombe Wanderers and you have named a

:12:10.:12:12.

strong team today. How much has that played a part in trying to ensure a

:12:13.:12:16.

less stressful way to the next round? It is never sure to go to the

:12:17.:12:22.

next round. Before you need to respect the opponent. And we have

:12:23.:12:32.

chosen a starting XI that we believe is the best to go to the next round.

:12:33.:12:36.

It is true that it was very stressed game against Wycombe and it was

:12:37.:12:41.

difficult in the last few minutes but we are here now and we need to

:12:42.:12:45.

try to give our best and win the game. We have a big opportunity to

:12:46.:12:54.

go to the quarterfinals and it is true that first of all we need to

:12:55.:12:59.

play well, better than Fulham, and to try to score goals and be better

:13:00.:13:05.

than them. You start Harry Kane today, any risk given the injury he

:13:06.:13:13.

picked up? Sometimes it is too difficult, who is playing, to rest

:13:14.:13:16.

player, because we have a lot of games ahead. We came from a very

:13:17.:13:25.

busy schedule but I think today the players that will be on the pitch,

:13:26.:13:31.

because we believe they are fresh and can play and cope with the 90

:13:32.:13:37.

minutes. In football always can happen everything but we decide to

:13:38.:13:42.

put this starting XI because we believe there is no risk for

:13:43.:13:49.

anybody. He started the year with seven wins, subsequently only two in

:13:50.:13:52.

the last six, struggling for form and goals, two away wins in the last

:13:53.:13:57.

14. They need to dig in. What is missing? He has been messing around

:13:58.:14:02.

with the formation of a little bit. He went to three at the back and I

:14:03.:14:07.

enjoyed it but I don't think he did it for defensive reasons, I think it

:14:08.:14:11.

was for attacking reasons because you get that width and it allows

:14:12.:14:15.

Erickson, Kane and Dele Alli to play a lot closer to each other. When

:14:16.:14:20.

they are close beautiful things happen -- Eriksen. Kane is making

:14:21.:14:29.

runs and Dele Alli is a huge threat. Danny Rose is not playing today but

:14:30.:14:32.

Kyle Walker can give you this width as well and it is just natural. What

:14:33.:14:37.

I have seen recently with Spurs, they play with a 4-2-3-1 and Harry

:14:38.:14:45.

Kane can get isolated. Dele Alli is not in the areas where he can

:14:46.:14:52.

influence it and drag the defenders away. When Abby Kane doesn't have

:14:53.:14:56.

those bodies around him, it tends to be easier to mark him -- Harry Kane.

:14:57.:15:01.

The last two games, especially Liverpool and Genk, they have got

:15:02.:15:05.

too close to him and taken him out of the game. I would love to get

:15:06.:15:08.

your opinion of Harry Kane, what do you make of him? I think he is now

:15:09.:15:13.

Mr Spurs, he is the Talisman, the guy upfront and like Jermaine says,

:15:14.:15:20.

with Dele Alli and Eriksen, he is completing the triangle. They are

:15:21.:15:23.

training a lot in between each other how to play and the way they link

:15:24.:15:29.

with each other is natural. They understand how to play football. Do

:15:30.:15:33.

you see him as a top-class goal-scorer? He is becoming one. The

:15:34.:15:39.

way he is wanting to score goals, this is what he wants to do. And for

:15:40.:15:45.

me, if he wants to become one of the best, he's in the right place and I

:15:46.:15:50.

think the coach is very good with him and he will develop to be one of

:15:51.:15:51.

the best. Quick prediction for you? I'm going

:15:52.:16:05.

to say a Fulham win. I'm going to go for a draw. How do you see it going?

:16:06.:16:14.

Two attacking site. It will turn around for Spurs today, I'm

:16:15.:16:22.

expecting 3-1 for Spurs. Commentary from Kevin Kilban and Guy Mowbray.

:16:23.:16:33.

COMMENTATOR: It feels like spring is on the way. In six weeks' time the

:16:34.:16:39.

Oxford and Cambridge boat crews will be racing past this famous ground on

:16:40.:16:42.

the River Thames and it is good to have full -- Fulham back in the

:16:43.:16:49.

spotlight after three seasons out of the Premier League. It's all about

:16:50.:17:00.

continuing in the Cup. With League 1 and the championship already

:17:01.:17:06.

represented in the sixth round draw. Harry Kane's Tottenham will be keen

:17:07.:17:12.

to be in that draw too. They haven't reached the quarterfinals since

:17:13.:17:17.

2012. Spurs with such a proud FA Cup history. Eight times winners but not

:17:18.:17:25.

since 1991. Only Manchester United and Arsenal have lifted the most

:17:26.:17:29.

famous trophy in football on more occasions. Kevin is alongside me.

:17:30.:17:41.

Kevin, it has a real quirky feel, Craven Cottage, one of the stranger

:17:42.:17:46.

walks out onto the field a professional can take. Yes, a great

:17:47.:17:50.

ground, the atmosphere is generated here so it is very different.

:17:51.:18:02.

Wonderful views of the Thames, Craven Cottage and west London. No

:18:03.:18:12.

coats needed today. It is a surprise to some that Harry

:18:13.:18:29.

Kane was passed fit to play today. He tweaked his knee on the Europa

:18:30.:18:39.

League game on Thursday. Pochettino has gone really big with his Spurs

:18:40.:18:44.

selection this afternoon and that is really good to see.

:18:45.:18:58.

A peculiar feature of Craven Cottage that the players have to walk right

:18:59.:19:03.

across the field before they take their places in front of the stand

:19:04.:19:08.

for the pre-match ritual of the handshakes. Nobody seems to shake

:19:09.:19:13.

hands properly any more, have you noticed that? Yes, I'm not sure

:19:14.:19:18.

about it, you want a proper handshake, a manly handshake. Let's

:19:19.:19:25.

take a look at the line-ups then. Fulham have Marcus getting in goal

:19:26.:19:39.

as per the last two rounds. It is a particularly exciting front line of

:19:40.:19:45.

power and pace, all out of Africa. Nigerian international, Sone Aluko,

:19:46.:19:58.

28 today. Neeskens Kebano, named after the Dutch international

:19:59.:20:12.

Neeskens. Harry Winks has just signed a new contract until 2022.

:20:13.:20:26.

Son, Ali And Kane all in good scoring form.

:20:27.:20:42.

These are the players waiting in the wings. Much attention on Fulham's

:20:43.:20:56.

Ryan Sessegnon, born in 2000, doesn't that make you feel old!

:20:57.:21:01.

Harry Kane wearing the armband for birds today. Tom Kearney his

:21:02.:21:16.

opposite number on the other side -- Cairney. I think we will settle for

:21:17.:21:25.

a five goal thriller, if the two site will oblige. It is going to be

:21:26.:21:34.

Spurs in their change colours of all gold to get the action under way.

:21:35.:21:42.

And all London clash of west versus north, it is championship against

:21:43.:21:48.

Premier League, and after Lincoln City and Millwall yesterday, maybe

:21:49.:21:51.

there is something in the air for Fulham as well. Slavisa Jokanovic

:21:52.:22:02.

might have been taken aback by the strength of the team facing his. You

:22:03.:22:07.

mentioned Harry Kane supposedly carrying a slight knock but it shows

:22:08.:22:16.

how seriously Mauricio Pochettino is taking it. Of course Fulham

:22:17.:22:20.

themselves very strong this season, going well in the championship, so

:22:21.:22:25.

it will be a big test for Spurs here today. Scoring goals which Spurs

:22:26.:22:29.

over the last few weeks have stopped doing.

:22:30.:22:59.

Odoi kept it successfully away from Dele Alli. The full-back caused the

:23:00.:23:08.

first rays in noise from the supporters today with that foray

:23:09.:23:14.

forward. It will be interesting to see, the two full-backs from

:23:15.:23:20.

Tottenham do like to get forward. Trippier has been in excellent form,

:23:21.:23:25.

it will be interesting to see how Fulham can stop both Tottenham's

:23:26.:23:31.

full-backs today. That was won by Trippier and out for Fulham throw.

:23:32.:23:45.

Ayite. Another one for Scott Malone to throw back in. Ayite comes back

:23:46.:23:55.

to collect and with the help of Trippier wins the ball back for

:23:56.:23:56.

Spurs. Blocked by Trippier. Great reaction,

:23:57.:24:11.

immediately on the front foot trying to get the ball back.

:24:12.:24:23.

Harry Kane took too long making his mind up what to do next but Spurs

:24:24.:24:29.

are into the tackle is just as quickly and cleanly as Fulham have

:24:30.:24:43.

been so far. Denis Odoi gets the ball away. He knew he had the pace

:24:44.:24:54.

to match the Tottenham winger. That will be a Fulham free kick. That's

:24:55.:24:58.

what we were speaking about, how high they play as full-backs.

:24:59.:25:02.

Trippier will be looking to get forward. Slavisa Jokanovic has been

:25:03.:25:15.

in charge of Fulham since the end of 2015. A Chelsea player spent two

:25:16.:25:19.

years at Stamford Bridge and was an unused substitute in the 2002 FA Cup

:25:20.:25:26.

final. Here is Eriksen, found by Ali and that was goal bound book for

:25:27.:25:33.

Bettinelli getting sharply down to save it. Looking for support from

:25:34.:25:42.

Tim Ream as he goes for the ball. It was a good save from Bettinelli. I

:25:43.:25:50.

think the reaction from Malone was too late. Tottenham Hotspur corner.

:25:51.:25:58.

Eriksen is the taker. Eriksen in Trippier's Way, nearly

:25:59.:26:19.

felled his own team-mate. Trippier is on it again now, Tim Ream up and

:26:20.:26:26.

clear. A bit of composure from Trippier, he beat the first man with

:26:27.:26:33.

a cross, which he should be doing. Dele Alli... And that cannot have

:26:34.:26:41.

been far away. Just past the post. A little bit of nervousness creeping

:26:42.:26:48.

in Fulham's back four at the moment, a little bit disorganised. No one

:26:49.:26:51.

took the initiative to clear the ball properly which is why the

:26:52.:26:58.

cautious strike from Dele Alli. Two good chances from Spurs in a couple

:26:59.:27:06.

of minutes now. It seemed like a bit of a messy start, players chasing

:27:07.:27:12.

the ball around, but it is entertaining for it. It is, they are

:27:13.:27:16.

playing open and expansive, Fulham at the moment. It goes straight to

:27:17.:27:25.

Bettinelli. That's the move we have seen often from Tottenham,

:27:26.:27:29.

immediately the left winger coming in off the left-hand side and

:27:30.:27:33.

looking for the diagonal ball to be played into him. Eriksen, it is

:27:34.:27:42.

Malone who jumped with him and won the ball for Fulham.

:27:43.:27:48.

It is a Tottenham throw despite Kebano's claims to the contrary.

:27:49.:28:13.

Davies crosses to deep for Harry Kane, straight behind. It was only

:28:14.:28:19.

really Harry Kane in the penalty area. Pochettino has remained

:28:20.:28:26.

philosophical despite losing the last two games, after an 11 game

:28:27.:28:30.

unbeaten run they were disappointing at Liverpool last Saturday. He never

:28:31.:28:37.

seems to get too ruffled, doesn't get too excited with winning or too

:28:38.:28:41.

disappointed with losing, the Argentinian. He came into the

:28:42.:28:46.

Premier League first of all with Southampton and doing a great job

:28:47.:28:47.

here at Tottenham. Thrown in by Odoi. Looking for

:28:48.:29:12.

Cairney to take the initiative. He's a good player, and he's developed

:29:13.:29:18.

into a leader here at Fulham. There was talk of a move in the January

:29:19.:29:23.

transfer window to Aston Villa and Newcastle, John Chim -- championship

:29:24.:29:32.

rivals. He had to go home to establish himself. When he went to

:29:33.:29:35.

Blackpool he did so well, this move to London has been great for him.

:29:36.:29:39.

Not sure about his dress sense but he's certainly a talented player.

:29:40.:30:06.

Lifted by McDonald but straight to Vorm.

:30:07.:30:25.

Alli just outside the box, Son at the back and Denis Odoi has go ahead

:30:26.:30:35.

behind. Excellent football initially from Davies making the run forward

:30:36.:30:39.

but it is too easy to play through the Fulham central midfield before

:30:40.:30:50.

they got it out wide. Christian Eriksen to go to the other side to

:30:51.:30:53.

take the next Spurs corner. It is in by the Dane and flicked

:30:54.:31:04.

goalwards and it nearly came to Vertonghen. Kebano was the quicker.

:31:05.:31:13.

Trippier had no option other than back to Michel Vorm. A couple of

:31:14.:31:16.

difficult moment for Fulham to deal with. Callers have caused problems

:31:17.:31:22.

for them and they have to sort them out. -- corners.

:31:23.:31:30.

Son is on the move but too soon. It is brave from Fulham, Odoi knows

:31:31.:31:46.

that Son has the run on him. Good organisation centrally, initially

:31:47.:31:47.

from Kalas. Malone was looking for Kebano and he

:31:48.:32:04.

has forced Alderweireld into a rare error. Sometimes as a lone striker

:32:05.:32:07.

you just have to make the run and try to cause an error as he has

:32:08.:32:12.

done. Good centre forward play but no communication between

:32:13.:32:16.

Alderweireld and Vorm in goals. It is only his fifth start for Fulham,

:32:17.:32:22.

he had left the bench ten times and scored one goal which was in injury

:32:23.:32:27.

time to seal 3-2 win against Wigan last weekend. Disappointing corner

:32:28.:32:35.

from Johansson but this is Malone to get past the challenge and shoot.

:32:36.:32:39.

Vorm had it covered but you might ask questions about how Scott Malone

:32:40.:32:45.

could get that close. Very easy to skip past Son. A poor challenge. But

:32:46.:32:51.

he didn't really look confident and it was a bit under his feet to try

:32:52.:32:57.

to get power into the strike. He has scored four goals from left-back

:32:58.:33:11.

this season. That was deflected but easily for Bettinelli. They seem to

:33:12.:33:17.

be getting some joy down the right-hand side and the movement of

:33:18.:33:20.

Eriksen and Trippier is causing problems.

:33:21.:33:29.

Bettinelli seeking out Odoi. Cairney against Wanyama, Aluko has been

:33:30.:33:40.

caught and Aluko and Cairney, both former Hull City players and both on

:33:41.:33:45.

the floor. It was Wanyama on Cairney initially.

:33:46.:33:51.

Tom Cairney is the player about whom concern is greatest here. I just

:33:52.:34:03.

wonder if maybe Wanyama's boot caught him on the way down. There

:34:04.:34:08.

was certainly no clash of heads. Yes, it is a nasty one for Cairney.

:34:09.:34:17.

Not much Victor Wanyama could have done about that.

:34:18.:34:30.

Antonio Conte has made the short trip across to watch his west London

:34:31.:34:41.

neighbours in action. You never know, he might face one of these

:34:42.:34:44.

teams in the next round. And he is always at Craven Cottage. Richard

:34:45.:34:46.

Osman. Fulham free kick to be taken by the

:34:47.:35:11.

Belgian, Odoi, or maybe not. Johansson took over. Cairney is back

:35:12.:35:17.

on the field and chasing down Ben Davies.

:35:18.:35:22.

Johansson playing it through towards Kebano and Alderweireld had it

:35:23.:35:30.

covered. He had the run on Kebano and he read the danger quickly.

:35:31.:35:38.

Eriksen through to Harry Kane. Tim Ream across to try to stop him. It

:35:39.:35:57.

wasn't played at quite the right time for Eriksen. I think they will

:35:58.:36:05.

find themselves doing that a lot today, going back towards the own

:36:06.:36:09.

goal, Fulham as they tried to squeeze a high line. The movement of

:36:10.:36:15.

Son and Alli and Eriksen coming of the right, those three players can

:36:16.:36:18.

take advantage of that. Nice touch from Dele Alli. It breaks for

:36:19.:36:24.

Johansson. Ream has asked Malone to get on his

:36:25.:36:52.

right but he couldn't find the pedals. Eriksen a cross to Harry

:36:53.:37:04.

Kane! He stretches to score! Harry Kane, the Tottenham captain, scored

:37:05.:37:14.

his 17th goal of the season. Never mind the knee injury, he has looked

:37:15.:37:20.

sharp from the start. And it is the Spurs number ten who makes it Fulham

:37:21.:37:25.

0- one Spurs. Great awareness from Kieran Trippier who knows that

:37:26.:37:30.

Malone is advanced of Eriksen and it is a great ball across the six yard

:37:31.:37:36.

box. It looks like a tap in but he is on the stretch and it is

:37:37.:37:41.

difficult to control. It wrong-foot Bettinelli and it is a brilliant

:37:42.:37:47.

goal from Spurs, superbly worked. The last time these teams met, in

:37:48.:37:50.

the Premier League almost three years ago, Harry Kane scored the

:37:51.:37:56.

second of three Spurs goals and two of them came after Eriksen at free

:37:57.:38:00.

kicks and look at Dele Alli in here and he ought to have done better. He

:38:01.:38:03.

brought it down but could not get his feet sorted for the finish. That

:38:04.:38:09.

is that high line I spoke about that Fulham are playing. If they can time

:38:10.:38:14.

those runs correctly... A brilliant ball from Alderweireld but he could

:38:15.:38:17.

not quite get the strike away. Spurs are per ring now. -- purring.

:38:18.:38:26.

All of the noise is coming from the end away to the right, the away end,

:38:27.:38:34.

at Dele Alli is in again but he was offside this time and Fulham had to

:38:35.:38:39.

sort this out otherwise they could be steam-rollered. They are playing

:38:40.:38:42.

a high line and there is no pressure on the ball and you can't be that as

:38:43.:38:47.

a back four. What a touch but he is so unlucky dummy did not get his

:38:48.:38:50.

left foot on it to get a decent strike. Fulham a bit too passive and

:38:51.:38:57.

allowing Alderweireld or Wanyama too much time on the ball.

:38:58.:39:06.

And in the opening 17 and a half minutes we have seen white Slammies

:39:07.:39:12.

Jokanovic's team score a lot of goals in the Championship but also

:39:13.:39:20.

why they ship a few -- why Slavisa Jokanovic's team. The three-man

:39:21.:39:24.

midfield they have got... Here is Wanyama. The ball wouldn't keep up

:39:25.:39:33.

with him. Vorm is invited to come for that by Alderweireld. Even

:39:34.:39:41.

Wanyama now has the confidence to step forward. McDonald, Johansen and

:39:42.:39:47.

Cairney are not getting near to their opponents in midfield and

:39:48.:39:51.

Wanyama is finding it easy to get on the boil and dictate play.

:39:52.:40:01.

Kenny was closed down by Wanyama but got it away quickly. -- Cairney.

:40:02.:40:46.

Spurs are convincing play and forcing the error. The overhit pass

:40:47.:40:52.

was down to the pressure being put on the players. Vertonghen deals

:40:53.:40:58.

with the pressure well, as does Wanyama.

:40:59.:41:08.

Vorm and that was messy! He has redeemed himself, just about, but he

:41:09.:41:17.

very nearly gifted Fulham the leveller. And you fancied Tom

:41:18.:41:21.

Cairney on his left foot in that position. Bettinelli will cut that

:41:22.:41:29.

out. Michel Vorm has to cut that out. It was sloppy. There is no need

:41:30.:41:34.

to do it, no need to take that chance. Tom Cairney knew he had to

:41:35.:41:40.

hit it first time, he was under pressure but it was a good reaction

:41:41.:41:44.

from Vorm after the initial mistake. You could see it happening with that

:41:45.:41:52.

short passing. Trippier wanted the ball but Vorm knows if he opened his

:41:53.:41:55.

feet he will get caught out initially.

:41:56.:42:11.

That was cleared by Kalas, looking for Kebano, and Alderweireld has to

:42:12.:42:17.

put it out and there is a decent response from Fulham going forward.

:42:18.:42:22.

Kebano has done well at couple of times, forcing errors but they are

:42:23.:42:25.

trying to goad into him direct too early at times. -- go into him.

:42:26.:42:45.

Malone's cross is stopped at source by Eriksen. It is a big plus for

:42:46.:42:57.

Pochettino to get the Tango and -- Vertonghen back alongside

:42:58.:42:59.

Alderweireld. When they are together, Spurs look much the better

:43:00.:43:05.

side. Eriksen trying to scurry away from Ayite out. We have seen that a

:43:06.:43:10.

few times from him and Kebano, they don't mind chasing back to win the

:43:11.:43:17.

ball. The same with Sone Aluko on this nearside. Beautifully taken by

:43:18.:43:23.

Harry Winks. Eriksen out to Trippier. Looking for Harry Winks

:43:24.:43:31.

and it was just behind him. Bettinelli had a guard in the form

:43:32.:43:35.

of Tomas Kalas. He is quick to get it away. Amelie times have we seen

:43:36.:43:39.

that movement from Spurs, starting by Ben Davies into midfield and a

:43:40.:43:42.

lovely touch by Harry Winks to take it away from Tom Koenig but Trippier

:43:43.:43:47.

is always free on the right-hand side -- Tom Cairney.

:43:48.:44:03.

The game still has a lovely, open feel about it midway through the

:44:04.:44:11.

first half. Eriksen has found room again.

:44:12.:44:41.

Dele Alli quickly out of Eriksen and now Trippier. He tried to pull it

:44:42.:44:48.

back for Dele Alli, Scott Malone had come back for Fulham. Could Dele

:44:49.:44:54.

Alli have made the run and try to get across the six yard box? It was

:44:55.:44:57.

difficult for Trippier to pull it back through the bodies. Stefan

:44:58.:45:03.

Johansen has slid right through Kieran Trippier and it is a Spurs

:45:04.:45:10.

free kick. He is the key player, Trippier is getting forward and he

:45:11.:45:11.

is finding acres of space. He had no real contact with Trippier

:45:12.:45:28.

but he's been excellent, a great option for Pochettino. Over midway

:45:29.:45:35.

through his second season at the club, and this is only his 30th game

:45:36.:45:39.

for Tottenham. Plays in the clubs generally. This is a long way out

:45:40.:45:43.

but it won't discourage Eriksen. The captain being very precise with

:45:44.:46:04.

his wall building, just encouraged Kebano to close the gap. There is

:46:05.:46:09.

Eriksen straight into the wall, the second time he gets bounced past it

:46:10.:46:17.

but not the accuracy, not his best. Difficult to get pays from that sort

:46:18.:46:21.

of distance as well. Very confidently done by Tim Ream. Given

:46:22.:46:33.

away to Kane. He finds Eriksen, and Eriksen has blazed it. That needed a

:46:34.:46:37.

bit of composure, something he's normally chock full of. Careless

:46:38.:46:42.

giving the ball away, he's been sloppy at the start of this game,

:46:43.:46:47.

Cairnie. He's not being his usual assured self on the ball. As soon as

:46:48.:46:53.

he takes that touch, good awareness from Kane to see that Eriksen is

:46:54.:47:01.

free. As soon as he's touched it, the angle is taken away from him.

:47:02.:47:13.

Odoi pushed by Winks, Fulham free kick. Slavisa Jokanovic does not

:47:14.:47:22.

hang about, he will make changes before half-time if he feel things

:47:23.:47:25.

are going away from his side. He did it in the week, he took off the

:47:26.:47:31.

Icelandic defender, Sigurdsson, he's not even on the team sheet today.

:47:32.:47:39.

The essential things you need to do, whether it's a personal change or

:47:40.:47:44.

whether he changes the system, but three in midfield, that triangle

:47:45.:47:54.

behind Harry Kane of Dele Alli, Son causing so many problems. They are

:47:55.:48:04.

having a field day. It was a 16-year-old Ryan Sessegnon who

:48:05.:48:10.

scored in the last two rounds. Goodness me, he does look young. His

:48:11.:48:16.

twin brother Stephen is actually in the Fulham under 18 side and they

:48:17.:48:19.

beat Spurs 3-0 on Friday afternoon. Davies looking to find Son. He does

:48:20.:48:44.

well, and he does find Son eventually.

:48:45.:48:53.

This time Davies getting forward again, it's the awareness of

:48:54.:48:59.

Alderweireld, he has the ability to hit that pass as well. Wanyama has

:49:00.:49:05.

had three grabs at him, couldn't stop him, eventually blocks. He

:49:06.:49:12.

thought about going for a free kick once or twice in that move, but

:49:13.:49:18.

never quite had the advantage. I think he would have wanted that free

:49:19.:49:25.

kick. Fulham open again. Dele Alli taking on Tim Ream. Winks' finish is

:49:26.:49:36.

academic, the flag is up. It won't count for anything. Excellent for

:49:37.:49:39.

Dele Alli out wide, waiting for the run of Kane, biding his time,

:49:40.:49:47.

getting his head up. The decision from the assistant and a good save

:49:48.:49:48.

as well from Bettinelli. A beautiful ball into Dele Alli who

:49:49.:50:14.

has waited one for Kane. Not quite the Harry Kane glitzy finish we are

:50:15.:50:20.

used to seeing though. It is far too easy. The space Dele Alli is finding

:50:21.:50:25.

himself in, they are far too open, Fulham. The angle slightly against

:50:26.:50:36.

him. London town looking splendid, as is Craven Cottage.

:50:37.:51:05.

Vertonghen has to quickly go through his gears to get their -- there

:51:06.:51:21.

first. Yes, he looks so good. Now he looks for Son and if Son gets there,

:51:22.:51:34.

that is one heck of a pass. Son looking to combine with Eriksen.

:51:35.:51:45.

Winks, every time you see him he looks that little bit more assured

:51:46.:51:52.

than the last time. Yes, he's getting better and better. Still a

:51:53.:51:56.

limited amount of Premier League starts but getting better. These

:51:57.:52:01.

sort of games as well will help him regain his confidence. 20 years old,

:52:02.:52:07.

the captain of the England under 20 side, now a regular in the Spurs

:52:08.:52:14.

squad and he will be for some time. He takes the ball in tight

:52:15.:52:19.

situations, the ability to skip away from defenders. They have fitted in

:52:20.:52:23.

love later this Tottenham side. I still think they missed a trick not

:52:24.:52:25.

giving him squad number 40. Room a little ahead for Kane who

:52:26.:53:01.

gets the deflection, wins Spurs corner and something has to change,

:53:02.:53:06.

otherwise Spurs will run away with this FA Cup tie. It is McDonald is

:53:07.:53:12.

alone sitting midfielder. We have to get your hands and alongside

:53:13.:53:17.

McDonald's to try to cope with the threat of Dele Alli and Eriksen

:53:18.:53:20.

because they are causing problems and McDonald cannot do the job of

:53:21.:53:22.

both players. Wanyama, all the time in the world

:53:23.:53:45.

to get it under control. It is just too easy. Vertonghen happy to spread

:53:46.:53:55.

the play and take a different route round.

:53:56.:54:13.

Cairney down, no foul, the referee didn't think there was anything

:54:14.:54:23.

wrong with the challenge. Dele Alli looking for Son and it is well

:54:24.:54:28.

behind him. Takes a lot to get the Fulham crowd booing like that. Yes,

:54:29.:54:35.

they felt it was a foul on Cairney. Dele Alli gets behind Fulham's

:54:36.:54:36.

defence. McDonald is down after a brush with

:54:37.:54:55.

Harry Kane, and the referee will have to stop the play because

:54:56.:55:01.

McDonald is holding his head. It was unintentional from Harry Kane.

:55:02.:55:13.

Just caught him with the flat of the hand as he tried to get away.

:55:14.:55:25.

McDonald is OK. Ryan Sessegnon, getting himself ready. He has

:55:26.:55:33.

already played 17 first-team games for Fulham. They will restart with a

:55:34.:55:46.

drop. Kebano has been invited by the referee to give the ball all the way

:55:47.:55:52.

back to Michel Vorm. Kevin McDonald patched up and back on the field for

:55:53.:56:07.

Fulham. It is better from Ream. As soon as they break that initial

:56:08.:56:09.

line, there is no real press from Fulham. The flag up against Son. So

:56:10.:56:31.

far, so comfortable for Mauricio Pochettino. It is too much for some.

:56:32.:56:36.

Alan Pardew is a regular at Gander Green Lane. It's often forgotten

:56:37.:56:43.

that he actually played for Spurs for a few games, the summer of 1995.

:56:44.:56:56.

It is not exactly flowing from Fulham but not going away. It is a

:56:57.:57:56.

game winner, pushing bodies forward. Tottenham inviting pressure, then

:57:57.:57:59.

they can move so quickly with the pace they have got. Davies just had

:58:00.:58:05.

his ankle tapped and that will be a Spurs free kick. That's where they

:58:06.:58:09.

have been quite poor, Fulham, when they got into those areas in the

:58:10.:58:15.

final third. The torches let them down, the final balls let them down.

:58:16.:58:27.

Kallis safely back to Bettinelli. -- Kalas. Just over 8 first half

:58:28.:58:39.

minutes to go. The manager will want to get them organised, change a few

:58:40.:58:45.

things in the system, I'm sure. Don't forget you can catch up with

:58:46.:58:50.

all of the weekend's FA Cup action with highlights tonight at 10:30pm

:58:51.:58:54.

on BBC One, then the fifth round comes to a close with Sutton United

:58:55.:59:04.

against Arsenal. The draw is at 630 PM tomorrow. At the moment it looks

:59:05.:59:12.

highly likely that Spurs will be in that draw. Fired towards Kebano. He

:59:13.:59:31.

is so isolated, Kebano. Quality is lacking but Alderweireld and

:59:32.:59:33.

Vertonghen can deal with any straight ball to them easily. Malone

:59:34.:59:39.

puts the ball out of play. Eriksen. He had got past Malone and

:59:40.:59:59.

was upended. Spurs' free kick. Eriksen will no doubt take it

:00:00.:00:04.

himself. Just makes that little shift away look so effortless. Great

:00:05.:00:11.

feet, hasn't he. Malone has found it difficult, isolated one-on-one with

:00:12.:00:17.

Trippier. He's not had too much help from Ayite in front of him.

:00:18.:00:24.

Fulham have brought everybody back to defend this. Even Vertonghen is

:00:25.:00:30.

on the edge of the box, it is only Ben Davies that is still back.

:00:31.:00:37.

Eriksen to find the right ball. He hasn't done and the clearance from

:00:38.:00:48.

Aluko. Johansen has set off. Are you take was dispossessed all too

:00:49.:00:49.

easily. -- Ayite. Dele Alli tried to trick the ball

:00:50.:01:13.

through for Eriksen but another Spurs corner. You feel the second

:01:14.:01:19.

goal is to come for Spurs. If nobody is prepared to put themselves on the

:01:20.:01:23.

line and go and make a challenge, it is easy for Wanyama to build that

:01:24.:01:25.

attack again for Spurs. Something different from Christian

:01:26.:01:48.

Eriksen and across from Trippier. Kalas flicked it clear.

:01:49.:02:03.

Michel Vorm was having a bit of a wander. Better from Fulham, they got

:02:04.:02:09.

themselves reorganised and were able to press at the right time. Kebano

:02:10.:02:15.

has been isolated but he was able with the support behind him to go

:02:16.:02:16.

and start that press. Not close enough to Harry Kane.

:02:17.:03:03.

Hammered out of play. Kevin McDonald with the no-frills clearance.

:03:04.:03:15.

Kebano was shoved off the ball by Vertonghen.

:03:16.:03:23.

Enough on that for Ream to find Bettinelli. I'm looking for the

:03:24.:03:33.

reaction from the Fulham players, it was too easy for Ben Davies to pick

:03:34.:03:37.

it up and find Dele Alli in so much space. Bettinelli gives it straight

:03:38.:03:42.

to Harry Kane and Johansen helps out his goalkeeper. He owes him a pint.

:03:43.:03:47.

Sloppy from Bettinelli, it was far too risky. Out towards Ayite but the

:03:48.:03:57.

flag is up. The assistant referee was standing right behind him. They

:03:58.:04:04.

got away with it here, Bettinelli. It was a good reaction from

:04:05.:04:09.

Johansen. He gets himself back old side. There doesn't seem to be any

:04:10.:04:16.

real fire about Fulham. I was lucky enough to be at Millwall yesterday

:04:17.:04:19.

and there could not be a greater contrast. Exactly. It is too easy in

:04:20.:04:25.

midfield, no pressure on young Vertonghen. We have said it

:04:26.:04:30.

throughout the first half, Fulham have been far too passive. That was

:04:31.:04:33.

better from Denis Odoi and twice. Aluko did well under pressure from

:04:34.:04:42.

Wanyama but now Odoi is too casual. The contrast, Spurs without the ball

:04:43.:05:00.

and Fulham, Spurs are so good and effective at winning it back.

:05:01.:05:12.

Son played that into a crowd. Easy cushion from Alderweireld to Son.

:05:13.:05:28.

Eriksen takes on Malone and leaves him behind easily. He went for goal

:05:29.:05:34.

that was blocked by McDonald's. A difficult chance, Son had made a

:05:35.:05:38.

great run from the edge of the area and it Eriksen gets his head up it

:05:39.:05:42.

is a freak strike on goal for Son but it was good skill out right -- a

:05:43.:05:46.

free strike. You have a feeling at the moment

:05:47.:06:09.

that Slammies Jokanovic will want half-time to come quickly so he can

:06:10.:06:12.

fire a bit of a rocket up his players. Totally. Mis-hit by

:06:13.:06:21.

Trippier. How many times that ball, played into Wanyama to easily so he

:06:22.:06:26.

can turn. Eriksen come off the right-hand side, he then frees up

:06:27.:06:31.

Trippier down the right and that move it excellent to see but Spurs

:06:32.:06:36.

should be able to find a way to counteract that now. You get the

:06:37.:06:42.

feeling right now that the only thing is going to beat Spurs it if

:06:43.:06:48.

it becomes too easy for them. Nice footwork from Johansen.

:06:49.:07:07.

Vertonghen was off balance. This is Kebano and Aluko. There is Johansen!

:07:08.:07:22.

He hit it hard enough but it was always straying wide. The first

:07:23.:07:27.

mistake Vertonghen has made. A little off-balance and he couldn't

:07:28.:07:31.

deal with it but it is better from Fulham. Aluko looking to drive

:07:32.:07:36.

Vertonghen into the area and it is a decent strike and better from

:07:37.:07:40.

Fulham. They have to take advantage of those situations. Remit stays

:07:41.:07:47.

ahead of Kane and there was a little push. -- Ream. Was that a natural

:07:48.:07:56.

bump and barge between these two? He has slipped as well. A slight hand

:07:57.:08:01.

on him but he was almost going over from the slip. A lucky break for the

:08:02.:08:04.

native of St Louis. Tim Ream formerly of Bolton,

:08:05.:08:19.

actually made his Bolton debut five years ago yesterday, curiously

:08:20.:08:23.

enough, at Millwall in the FA Cup, one of the teams of the weekend.

:08:24.:08:30.

There is Tim Ream. He just managed to get it away. Something for Fulham

:08:31.:08:40.

before the break! That was Ayite. And now Aluko. His effort is on

:08:41.:08:47.

target but straight at Vorm. Better from Fulham right on the whistle. A

:08:48.:08:52.

brilliant ball in from Malone, excellent from Tom Cairney initially

:08:53.:08:57.

and yet the awareness. He knows that Aluko and Dybala had gone off site

:08:58.:09:00.

and what a ball that is and he should be doing better. The

:09:01.:09:05.

follow-up from Aluko is comfortable but it was better from Fulham in the

:09:06.:09:10.

closing stages. And just up until that flurry, comfortable is the word

:09:11.:09:16.

but it is only Fulham 0-1 Tottenham Hotspur.

:09:17.:09:21.

In this FA Cup, particularly this weekend, we have seen some teams

:09:22.:09:26.

from lower leagues playing well against Premier League teams but in

:09:27.:09:31.

this you can see the Gulf between them. Spurs have been different

:09:32.:09:37.

class altogether. It shows you why teams should play their stronger

:09:38.:09:40.

teams in these games because it has almost been like a training

:09:41.:09:44.

exercise. A bit of confidence, your striker gets an important goal. It

:09:45.:09:48.

goes from what has been a terrible couple of days with the earlier

:09:49.:09:53.

games, Liverpool and Ghent, and now Harry Kane scores, the team is

:09:54.:09:56.

playing well, it has been a good first 45 minutes. Fulham have let

:09:57.:10:02.

them go the way they are set up and with such a high line. They have

:10:03.:10:07.

played some good football, Spurs. They do but I think Fulham makes it

:10:08.:10:12.

difficult for themselves, trying to play from the back which is how

:10:13.:10:17.

every body plays these days but they forget sometimes they are playing

:10:18.:10:21.

Spurs. They are not playing a weak team. They think it will be easy for

:10:22.:10:26.

them but it's not because the Tottenham player are smart and they

:10:27.:10:29.

anticipate the game and that is how they score. Let's have a look at the

:10:30.:10:31.

first goal. It was some good football. It

:10:32.:10:41.

started with the throw in, Harry Kane does what he does best but have

:10:42.:10:47.

a look at this, the left-back switches off. Eriksen makes the run

:10:48.:10:52.

and he senses the space to run into. It is such quick thinking from

:10:53.:10:57.

Trippier. He put it into the space, and a fantastic finish. And Kalas

:10:58.:11:02.

switches off for a moment, he can see the throw in being taken in by

:11:03.:11:06.

the time he react it is too late and Kane has an easy finish. I suppose

:11:07.:11:10.

in many ways, the one thing in Fulham's favour is that they are not

:11:11.:11:13.

out of it because they could easily come Spurs had lots of chances to

:11:14.:11:20.

score. And I think if they have a chance to score, Fulham, but it will

:11:21.:11:27.

be if Spurs make a mistake. Tottenham is the better team and

:11:28.:11:31.

Fulham have a problem on the left side of the team which most of the

:11:32.:11:38.

danger of comes from. Any time Dele Alli and Eriksen and Kane are in

:11:39.:11:41.

close proximity, things are happening. I am so surprised at how

:11:42.:11:47.

high this Fulham line is. It seemed to be bringing them to life. That

:11:48.:11:52.

ball and that touch from Dele Alli, it was just a shame he could not get

:11:53.:11:56.

the contact with his left. The amount of times we're seen the

:11:57.:12:00.

centre halves playing that ball, numerous times. Bags of chances.

:12:01.:12:06.

There have been and it has been disappointing for Fulham. We talked

:12:07.:12:09.

about the high line, they do not have much pace at the back,

:12:10.:12:12.

particularly not at centre-half, to deal with Kane and Alli getting in

:12:13.:12:17.

behind and that has been obvious with those chances. It has been

:12:18.:12:23.

balls over the top or in behind. We met their problem down the left

:12:24.:12:26.

which has given a lot of freedom to Kieran Trippier who does deliver a

:12:27.:12:33.

ball on most occasions. He is a striker's dream. Most of the touch

:12:34.:12:37.

it is one ball and it is delivered, he rarely cuts back onto his left

:12:38.:12:41.

unless he has too. You can see the space and he gets the ball in and

:12:42.:12:46.

players can make their runs off that. Him and Eriksen seemed to have

:12:47.:12:51.

a real understanding. There are a few balls and that left-hand side

:12:52.:12:56.

has been exposed. This has been on and Eriksen can deliver and as long

:12:57.:12:59.

as you have runners, that time Kane was not on. But you can see his

:13:00.:13:06.

influence on the first half. Exact the what Dimitar was saying. And I

:13:07.:13:14.

know you appreciated people on the wings when they delivered the ball

:13:15.:13:17.

in early because you can time your run. You can see in the first goal,

:13:18.:13:22.

it is all about the past. What else can you want from a player like

:13:23.:13:26.

this? Harry Kane was in the position he plays but the pass was precisely

:13:27.:13:33.

the way it should be. That is white Eriksen is the main player for the

:13:34.:13:38.

first half. Trippier is doing well going all around but Eriksen is the

:13:39.:13:43.

man who makes the difference. We have talked about Fulham trying to

:13:44.:13:45.

play out which they can probably get away with in the Championship but

:13:46.:13:50.

against a team that presses as well as Spurs, it has often not worked.

:13:51.:13:55.

They started brilliantly and you watched them and thought, this team

:13:56.:14:00.

can really pop it around. It is a mixture between what Dimitar and

:14:01.:14:04.

Mark were saying, they are playing a bit too high and yes it looks great

:14:05.:14:09.

when it comes off and they linked up well and they are able to have that

:14:10.:14:15.

composure and create opportunities. But you have to remember they are

:14:16.:14:18.

playing against Spurs and they will set traps and wait for them to make

:14:19.:14:22.

a mistake and when they do, look how many Spurs players there are. They

:14:23.:14:26.

get it to Eriksen eventually and he will not miss too many of those if

:14:27.:14:33.

you keep giving them to him. Again, the goalkeeper overplaying it. It

:14:34.:14:34.

was a poor touch. The only disappointing thing for

:14:35.:14:41.

Spurs is that it is not three or four. Watching the keeper trying to

:14:42.:14:45.

play out, it is an interesting aspect of the modern game that

:14:46.:14:48.

keepers have to play out from the back but we saw an example at the

:14:49.:14:51.

other end when Michel Vorm got himself into trouble. It is all

:14:52.:14:55.

about finding that balance. I understand you want to play out as

:14:56.:14:59.

much as you can and it important, particularly for the way a lot of

:15:00.:15:02.

these teams are set up. Spurs do it all the time but you will have

:15:03.:15:07.

mistakes and this was purely because he is forced. Rather than putting

:15:08.:15:11.

his foot behind it. Do it next time, you don't have to do it every time.

:15:12.:15:16.

It is different for goalkeepers now. As youngsters, they have to be able

:15:17.:15:19.

to play with their feet whereas in my day certainly add not even that

:15:20.:15:25.

long ago, keepers would, they were not very good footballers. That's

:15:26.:15:29.

right and some would say that is why we let in goals! And you're daft,

:15:30.:15:36.

obviously! But you would be surprised how many are still not as

:15:37.:15:39.

good with their feet as they should be and the way the game has evolved,

:15:40.:15:42.

it is going that route and people want the goalkeeper who is like an

:15:43.:15:46.

outfield player. But ultimately he still has to save goals.

:15:47.:15:51.

Tomorrow evening on BBC One we have arguably the most anticipated tie of

:15:52.:16:00.

the FA Cup, Sutton United hold Arsenal at Gander Green Lane. Sutton

:16:01.:16:05.

are synonymous with the FA Cup after producing one of the great upset in

:16:06.:16:10.

1989, a day Matthew Hanlon will never forget. I was 22 at the time,

:16:11.:16:16.

working as a bricklayer. A big fan of The Jam, I liked scooters and

:16:17.:16:24.

that sort of stuff. I lived and breathed football, used to come in

:16:25.:16:28.

from work straight down here and train on Monday night. It certainly

:16:29.:16:33.

hasn't changed much. The players were from different backgrounds,

:16:34.:16:37.

different businesses. Some were bankers, some were commodity

:16:38.:16:42.

brokers. I remember joining the club and talking to Barry Williams about

:16:43.:16:47.

what he achieved. I believe he was an English teacher, famous shots of

:16:48.:16:52.

him in the dugout. The draw was bittersweet, we were hoping for

:16:53.:16:55.

Arsenal or Manchester United, someone like that, and we drew

:16:56.:16:59.

Coventry. I didn't realise till we thought about it, hold on, they are

:17:00.:17:05.

third or fourth in the top-flight. The day itself we changed routine

:17:06.:17:13.

slightly and changed on the rack out the back and I don't think anything

:17:14.:17:18.

went right. COMMENTATOR: It is a big day for the club... It was pretty

:17:19.:17:26.

packed, pretty rocking, and we scored the first goal. I remember

:17:27.:17:31.

following Tony, he headed towards the cameras which was the shout

:17:32.:17:38.

before the game. The left-back is the hero for Sutton for the time

:17:39.:17:45.

being at least. David Phillips goes to him behind me actually. And

:17:46.:17:49.

Phillips has put Coventry City level. We played as well as we did,

:17:50.:17:56.

managed to scrape some half chances and eventually won a corner. I

:17:57.:18:00.

started my ROM from back out here. The ball came through some people

:18:01.:18:11.

and the rest is history, as they say. At that point there was

:18:12.:18:16.

obviously a real chance that there was a shock coming and we were just

:18:17.:18:23.

going to go on and win. The last 15 minutes we just held on the deal

:18:24.:18:28.

life and how they didn't equalise or score a winner, I will never know.

:18:29.:18:34.

And there it is Sutton United at the GM Vauxhall Conference have put out

:18:35.:18:39.

Coventry City, winners of the FA Cup themselves less than two years ago.

:18:40.:18:45.

I remember getting carried away with the fans on the pitch, heading over

:18:46.:18:51.

towards my girlfriend, wife now, where she was standing with my

:18:52.:18:55.

sister and her boyfriend. Even then I don't think we realised what had

:18:56.:19:02.

just happened. We had probably all of the press at my mum and dad's on

:19:03.:19:10.

the Sunday and Monday. The BBC had been on the phone and we were needed

:19:11.:19:16.

on the Wogan show that night. It's obviously been an enormous part of

:19:17.:19:21.

my life. I would like to think it's been an enormous part of Sutton's as

:19:22.:19:25.

well. I wouldn't want to swap any of it for anything. Great story, cannot

:19:26.:19:33.

wait. Fifth round, Sutton Arsenal, magical. We are back at Gander Green

:19:34.:19:37.

Lane from 7:30pm tomorrow night and it promises to be a special FA Cup

:19:38.:19:46.

evening. Before that 5 Live has commentary on Blackburn versus

:19:47.:19:47.

Manchester United. You have got until midnight tonight

:19:48.:20:03.

to sign up for the people's Cup, the National five-a-side competition.

:20:04.:20:07.

Let's go pitch side now. We are with the Fulham fan who led the opening

:20:08.:20:14.

to hour show today. Richard Osmond beside me, Fulham fan

:20:15.:20:19.

for life. The beautiful setting but what is it you love about being a

:20:20.:20:27.

Fulham fan? We are very quirky club. No one is accidentally Fulham

:20:28.:20:30.

supporter, you don't support them for the glory but it is a lovely

:20:31.:20:34.

team, amazing fans and it's the best ground in the country. It deserves

:20:35.:20:39.

Premiership football. We can show them how we play, though we haven't

:20:40.:20:45.

so far. Let's get to the game, a few nervy moments but you are just one

:20:46.:20:50.

goal behind. People have talked about clubs disrespecting the FA Cup

:20:51.:20:55.

and I'm annoyed Spurs haven't done it. They've come out with Harry Kane

:20:56.:21:00.

and Dele Alli, what are you supposed to do? We are playing well but you

:21:01.:21:05.

look at Vertonghen and Alderweireld, they are so fast, we cannot play our

:21:06.:21:10.

possession football or play at speed but we are good team and I'm sure

:21:11.:21:15.

Slavisa Jokanovic will talk to them at half-time and we will come out

:21:16.:21:19.

all guns blazing. We know he can make changes quickly, what can

:21:20.:21:28.

Fulham do to bring this back? Well Kebano is a terrific player but

:21:29.:21:31.

doesn't have the speed to get past that centre pairing. What we really

:21:32.:21:35.

want in the last ten minutes, bring Scott Parker on and then the whole

:21:36.:21:39.

crowd can get on their feet and cheer him. We are used to seeing you

:21:40.:21:43.

calm and composed in the television studio, what are you like as a

:21:44.:21:49.

football fan? If we score, you will see me not calm and composed but it

:21:50.:21:53.

is so nerve wracking but this game is a treat and it's great to have

:21:54.:21:57.

this sort of football back at the Cottage. Enjoy the second half if

:21:58.:22:06.

you can. Come on, you Whites. I love that line, how dare Tottenham not

:22:07.:22:11.

this respect Fulham! We all had a giggle when he said it, and it is

:22:12.:22:16.

actually nice to see they are not, they are putting out a strong team

:22:17.:22:19.

and respecting the Cup. Jose Mourinho has been adamant about

:22:20.:22:25.

that, not disrespecting the Cup, and it is nice Pochettino hasn't done

:22:26.:22:28.

that. I'd like to take this opportunity to ask what you are up

:22:29.:22:32.

to, you're not playing anywhere at the moment, are you? Is it finished

:22:33.:22:38.

for you? Hopefully not, I'm still trying to find a team if you want to

:22:39.:22:42.

say it like this because I still feel good, I train and keep fit.

:22:43.:22:50.

Message to managers, coaches, chairman everywhere, he's available.

:22:51.:22:55.

He can play a bit. You don't need pace, do you? It's all in the head!

:22:56.:23:05.

Where do you think, Premiership or championship or other countries, I'd

:23:06.:23:09.

guess it depends where you want to play. It is all about football, you

:23:10.:23:16.

just want to play and enjoy it a bit more. I see players my age still

:23:17.:23:21.

playing, Scott Parker is an example. What's he like to play with,

:23:22.:23:27.

Jermaine? For me personally, he is a dream because I used to love running

:23:28.:23:30.

forward and he used to give me this looks as if to say get on your bike,

:23:31.:23:36.

I will find you. Some of my best memories and best goals were through

:23:37.:23:44.

this man passing me the ball. Fulham are just coming out first, Tottenham

:23:45.:23:49.

behind them. What can he change to get them back into this? Maybe the

:23:50.:23:55.

solution is bringing on someone like Chris Martin, put him up front, try

:23:56.:24:00.

to pin Vertonghen back, get the players out wide and in behind them

:24:01.:24:07.

again. 1-0 down is not a disaster. Forget about the first half, move

:24:08.:24:12.

forward, try to change things, maybe bring Martin on. And Tottenham more

:24:13.:24:21.

of the same, I imagine? As I say, Fulham need to pay attention to the

:24:22.:24:30.

left side of their team. They can play more secure and then have a

:24:31.:24:36.

chance to score that way. Spurs will be disappointed they haven't been

:24:37.:24:39.

more clinical and that's what they will be looking to improve on. The

:24:40.:24:45.

second half now back with the commentators.

:24:46.:24:48.

COMMENTATOR: No changes made by either manager during the half-time

:24:49.:24:53.

break. Spurs in the lead but not in total control with only one goal in

:24:54.:24:58.

the game so far. These sides actually met in the fifth round of

:24:59.:25:01.

the FA Cup ten years ago yesterday here, the Spurs win 4-0. Two of

:25:02.:25:12.

those goals scored by Dimitar Berbatov. No surprise to hear him

:25:13.:25:17.

say he still wants to play football, fit as a flea. Yes, so elegant, an

:25:18.:25:25.

excellent goal-scorer. McDonald 's off-balance as he got

:25:26.:25:48.

the return pass from Sone Aluko. We are looking for that spark from

:25:49.:25:53.

Fulham. They just need to try to put Tottenham under pressure, be better

:25:54.:25:57.

with the ball, something they have been poor at in the first half.

:25:58.:26:05.

Trippier with a little too much to do. He closes down Malone. Fulham's

:26:06.:26:12.

throwing. He passes it straight out of play.

:26:13.:27:13.

In towards Kebano. It will be a Spurs ball. Better from Fulham,

:27:14.:27:25.

better start. Reaction on the ball, giving it away, I'm sure that

:27:26.:27:28.

something Slavisa Jokanovic would have spoken about at half-time. Dele

:27:29.:27:33.

Alli out of the game for a moment. Harry Kane, beaten by Kalas. Here is

:27:34.:27:52.

Eriksen, all of the options are to his left, that wasn't one of them.

:27:53.:27:54.

Ayite. Kebano called for it and was always

:27:55.:28:13.

running behind the Spurs defenders. That's not a great run from Kebano.

:28:14.:28:23.

Better from Fulham. Malone unable to find many chances in the first half

:28:24.:28:30.

to get himself down the side in front of Malone.

:28:31.:28:40.

Cain tries to get to the near post, there is Eriksen. A nice comfortable

:28:41.:28:49.

save from letting. Trippier again, he's caused so many problems for

:28:50.:28:54.

Ayite in the first half. Ayite trying to get that ball through to

:28:55.:29:00.

Eriksen. It is up to Trippier to get forward on the right, they have been

:29:01.:29:04.

excellent linking up, Trippier and Eriksen today.

:29:05.:29:34.

Wanyama beaten by Odoi. Wanyama again. Given away to Kalas, the on

:29:35.:29:49.

loan Chelsea defender. Won back by Wanyama.

:29:50.:29:57.

Trippier is going again. Eriksen, a good ball in... Finished by Harry

:29:58.:30:08.

Kane and it might have finished this FA Cup tie. Difficult now for Fulham

:30:09.:30:12.

to get back into this one. The Fulham fingers are pointing at

:30:13.:30:24.

the assistant referee but he kept his flag down and Harry Kane kept

:30:25.:30:28.

his cool and gets his second goal of the game

:30:29.:30:33.

Kieran Trippier got free down the right-hand side. I think he was

:30:34.:30:41.

offside at it was -- as it was played in. A great ball from Eriksen

:30:42.:30:43.

nonetheless. I think he was just off but it was

:30:44.:30:54.

Trippier initially getting free again from Eileen -- ie take --

:30:55.:31:06.

Ayite as he has done all game. The same combination as for the first

:31:07.:31:13.

goal. It was a very tight call. And it has gone against Fulham.

:31:14.:31:35.

Spurs do have a measure of control on the tie now.

:31:36.:31:51.

Son takes on Kalas but lost control, he didn't know whether to keep going

:31:52.:32:02.

or find Eriksen. He get it back from Kalas who gets back at him with a

:32:03.:32:08.

good challenge. Johansen turned and found Cairney and Aluko looking for

:32:09.:32:15.

Kebano but only find Vertonghen. It was that straight ball that we saw

:32:16.:32:20.

in the first half and it is so easy for Vertonghen and Alderweireld to

:32:21.:32:23.

read. Kebano is very isolated upfront again.

:32:24.:32:33.

Tim Ream forcing him wider all the time and the touch was off Harry

:32:34.:32:41.

Kane to the disbelief of the Spurs skipper. I think his foot was off

:32:42.:32:46.

the pitch. This is the chance and he is just leaning offside. Sorry, his

:32:47.:32:54.

foot is on, it is very tight. Perhaps the assistant has got that

:32:55.:33:00.

right. It was the back leg of Tim Ream that was playing him onside.

:33:01.:33:10.

Spurs looked as though, after going 2-0 up, if anything they are looking

:33:11.:33:17.

to increase the pace little bit more.

:33:18.:33:24.

Davies is tripped but just outside the box, just as he was threatening

:33:25.:33:30.

to burst into it and have a chance to make it 3-0. A great run. Not the

:33:31.:33:43.

greatest challenge from Odoi. He was never going to challenge to win the

:33:44.:33:47.

ball but to barge Davies over. This is Christian Eriksen territory will

:33:48.:33:52.

stop it is a disgruntled Harry Kane who has walked away from the free

:33:53.:33:57.

kick position. He was bent down and whispering in his ear and begging

:33:58.:34:02.

him to let him have the chance to take that ball home with him tonight

:34:03.:34:10.

but Eriksen was having none of it. He has made two goals for him, it's

:34:11.:34:17.

his turn now. The shot is straight at the wall and onto the back of

:34:18.:34:23.

Harry Kane. He hasn't quite got those free kicks right today,

:34:24.:34:26.

Christian Eriksen. I think his set pieces in general have not been the

:34:27.:34:31.

best, free kicks and corners. Very unusual for him.

:34:32.:34:37.

Tim Ream just got back away with Dele Alli closing.

:34:38.:34:46.

Kalas is left down and out, Kane takes it again he didn't expect to.

:34:47.:35:12.

Kalas was looking to Bobby Madley committee felt it was a foul by

:35:13.:35:14.

Harry It almost gifted Harry Kane and

:35:15.:35:22.

other goal. I think that was a foul but a was covering. -- Odoi was

:35:23.:35:32.

covering. 16-year-old Ryan Sessegnon is about to take the field. Floyd

:35:33.:35:42.

Ayite sees his number up. Little chance for the Togolese

:35:43.:35:48.

International to get involved. Certainly not from an attacking

:35:49.:35:51.

point of view, most of his work has been tracking Kieran Trippier and he

:35:52.:35:55.

has not done a good enough job of doing that. When he scored against

:35:56.:36:02.

Cardiff City in August he became the first player born in the 2000s to

:36:03.:36:09.

score in the English leagues. He scored in the third round come also

:36:10.:36:13.

against Cardiff, and in the fourth round against Hull City as well.

:36:14.:36:23.

I think Jokanovic has recognised that is the threat, Kieran Trippier

:36:24.:36:29.

getting forward down the right and he had to try to shore up this

:36:30.:36:36.

Fulham left. Kebano is offside again.

:36:37.:36:46.

He was looking right across the line. It is a close call again.

:36:47.:36:54.

Probably onside, Vertonghen is playing him on but it was tight.

:36:55.:37:00.

Fulham might have that feeling that nothing is quite going their way.

:37:01.:37:16.

The Spurs fans are in good voice, singing about going to Wembley and

:37:17.:37:27.

they are on Thursday for the second leg of their last 32 tie against

:37:28.:37:33.

Gent, trying to do turnaround a 1-0 first leg deficit. -- trying to turn

:37:34.:37:38.

around. Son tried to beat Tim Ream but

:37:39.:37:58.

couldn't. Sessegnon on the ball again, Trippier came back to

:37:59.:37:59.

challenge. All the noise around the Cottage is

:38:00.:38:21.

Tottenham noise. Eriksen's lift and Dele Alli puts it

:38:22.:38:41.

over the top. He was being challenged as he got in there but it

:38:42.:38:46.

is the best chance Cena said today. Brilliantly worked from the

:38:47.:38:52.

left-hand side. -- the best chance he has had. It looked like Dele Alli

:38:53.:39:02.

add a simple tap in. Odoi still had the awareness and the ability to

:39:03.:39:06.

make the challenge. But the big chance.

:39:07.:39:13.

Set in Young goes past Trippier. Trippier with a decent recovery

:39:14.:39:27.

challenge -- Sessegnon. Trippier did well against the pace of Sessegnon.

:39:28.:39:33.

Stefan Johansen will take the corner. Can they fight their way

:39:34.:39:41.

back into this FA Cup tie? It is over the head of Kane, Kalas had

:39:42.:39:49.

ago. Cleared by Harry Kane. Malone has to go back to Bettinelli. It is

:39:50.:39:58.

just so notable how much better Tottenham are without the ball,

:39:59.:40:02.

putting the Fulham players under the pressure, they are able to win it

:40:03.:40:05.

back and have bodies in advanced positions when they do. Malone

:40:06.:40:11.

seeking out Johansen and he goes past Trippier.

:40:12.:40:20.

It won't open up for the shot. It is a lot busier from Fulham.

:40:21.:40:32.

McDonald this possesses Son. Fulham live here. Just a few challenges

:40:33.:40:43.

going in, something we were expecting in the first half. It

:40:44.:40:50.

seems to be the introduction of a 16-year-old that has given them a

:40:51.:40:51.

spark. Eriksen has gone darting forward,

:40:52.:41:28.

Malone went with him, side-by-side all the way. We spoke about the

:41:29.:41:34.

positions that Alli and Eriksen take up, they are forming a little

:41:35.:41:39.

triangle off Harry Kane, not staying wide but coming central and the

:41:40.:41:44.

full-backs, Malone and Odoi, don't know whether to go with them. They

:41:45.:41:50.

are trying to keep their shape but they are freeing up so much space

:41:51.:41:52.

for Alli and Eriksen to pick up. Trippier, such a good attacking

:41:53.:42:06.

option for Spurs. A good ball in but it was too close to Bettinelli. It

:42:07.:42:11.

was comfortable. Sessegnon realised Alderweireld was

:42:12.:42:44.

getting there first and he let him have it to get a corner. He is a

:42:45.:42:49.

threat not to Trippier, getting him to go back towards his own goal

:42:50.:42:53.

whereas by and large Trippier has been on the attack in advanced

:42:54.:43:00.

positions. The Fulham fans trying to rouse their team. Harry Kane heads

:43:01.:43:04.

it away. Kalas as it now but he has gone back

:43:05.:43:17.

to McDonald. And he will go back to Bettinelli, that was from a Fulham

:43:18.:43:23.

corner. It is the pressure from Tottenham, forcing Fulham back

:43:24.:43:25.

towards their own goal. The Spurs visiting contingent are

:43:26.:43:44.

enjoying their day by the river hugely at the moment.

:43:45.:44:02.

Harry Winks has been very impressive again today.

:44:03.:44:36.

The nonstop Spurs noise has brought a response from Fulham. Taken away

:44:37.:44:43.

from Eriksen by Malone. There is going to be a Fulham

:44:44.:45:06.

substitution. Sone Aluko is going off and there will be Cyriac coming

:45:07.:45:15.

on, who is on loan from Belgium. Cyriac has scored seven goals for

:45:16.:45:32.

them this season, plenty of pace about him. Trying to hold off

:45:33.:45:37.

Alderweireld, managed to do that to find care -- Cairney.

:45:38.:46:03.

Odoi macro gets it back, the touch of fortune about that, and run into

:46:04.:46:12.

Davies but Davies stopped it with his arm I think. Cairney is having

:46:13.:46:18.

more influence on the game, there is more life about Fulham. Your hands

:46:19.:46:25.

on with the chance to find a white shirt in or just outside the penalty

:46:26.:46:39.

area. -- Johansen with the chance. This will be curled inwards by

:46:40.:46:45.

Johansen, the former Celtic player. It is floated. It is Kalas, Ryan

:46:46.:46:56.

Sessegnon, they all pounced upon him. It is a Fulham fro, they will

:46:57.:46:59.

try to keep the attack going. Tottenham's turn this time. I wonder

:47:00.:47:37.

if he's going to go down the line to Cain.

:47:38.:47:47.

A seeker over the top but it only finds Alderweireld. McDonald,

:47:48.:47:56.

dispossessed by Eriksen. Dele Alli is up with him, Eriksen has easily

:47:57.:48:02.

got past the first man. Well gathered by Bettinelli, who bravely

:48:03.:48:10.

held on. He did, a couple of nutmegs. Getting caught in

:48:11.:48:14.

possession again though. McDonald did well to get back. Good

:48:15.:48:26.

goalkeeping go. So many chances for Tottenham have come about from

:48:27.:48:28.

Fulham being sloppy in possession today.

:48:29.:48:41.

Cyriac wins a corner for Fulham. He's been lively since coming on,

:48:42.:48:46.

Cyriac. Johansen in. It was met firmly by

:48:47.:49:04.

Trippier, headed out. Johansen's throw.

:49:05.:49:14.

It is Wanyama who collects and tries to storm forward, he has done that

:49:15.:49:23.

easily. Dele Alli... Wouldn't quite come to his boots. He was caught,

:49:24.:49:29.

holding his leg, Dele Alli, and Spurs have the free kick. Yes, it is

:49:30.:49:36.

the high boot from Johansen. Nasty challenge there from Johansen.

:49:37.:49:49.

Eriksen, Wanyama. Up towards Cain. Bettinelli stays at home... It is

:49:50.:49:59.

poked over the top. Excellent awareness from Dele Alli again. It

:50:00.:50:06.

is that second touch off his knee that allowed the ball to get away

:50:07.:50:15.

from him. Scored one at full stretch, couldn't get a victory goal

:50:16.:50:21.

that time. Another chance will come, I'm sure. Fulham trying to keep this

:50:22.:50:28.

alive. He stopped the threat down Tottenham's right. Fulham have

:50:29.:50:36.

plugged the gaps continuously opening down the left-hand side. One

:50:37.:50:44.

Fulham goal could really change the feel of things. Johansen. Just over

:50:45.:50:54.

the top. Chance. Kevin McDonald gets in front of Wanyama, Wanyama isn't

:50:55.:51:02.

great at marking and allows McDonald to get in front of him. He should do

:51:03.:51:07.

better really. Well over the ball, perhaps it is the little nudge from

:51:08.:51:14.

Wanyama that puts McDonald off. Clever movement from Sessegnon, it

:51:15.:51:53.

freed up Malone to get down the left-hand side.

:51:54.:52:18.

Bettinelli down the middle wanting Cyriac to challenge for it. Harry

:52:19.:52:33.

Kane, onside... Scores his hat-trick. Harry Kane seals it once

:52:34.:52:45.

and for all for Spurs. It is his fifth trouble for the team, his

:52:46.:52:54.

second of 2017 after having scored against West Bromwich Albion just

:52:55.:52:56.

over a month ago. It was a lovely ball from Dele Alli, he had a look

:52:57.:53:02.

to the linesman there, he got the awareness. But a belief in himself

:53:03.:53:06.

that when he does get free, he will score. A beautifully weighted pass

:53:07.:53:13.

from Dele Alli. He sees that his onside, then the composure and

:53:14.:53:18.

ability to slot it beyond Bettinelli in the goal. Brilliant from Harry

:53:19.:53:25.

Kane. At 23 years old, he has, as remarked by Dimitar Berbatov

:53:26.:53:31.

pre-match, he knows a thing or two about scoring goals for Tottenham,

:53:32.:53:42.

he has become their talisman. 0- three, and Harry Kane has got the

:53:43.:53:48.

lot. Just playing on the shoulder of defenders, isn't he. There was a

:53:49.:53:56.

full -- Fulham change, and it is Scott Parker who has come on, taking

:53:57.:54:04.

the place of Kevin McDonald. And Harry Kane is going to go off to a

:54:05.:54:13.

standing ovation too. They were about to make that substitution

:54:14.:54:19.

before Harry Kane scored that goal. He is onside, I think it is just the

:54:20.:54:29.

back foot of Ream playing him on. It caps off a brilliant performance for

:54:30.:54:35.

Harry Kane with his hat-trick goal. A very successful day at the office

:54:36.:54:36.

for Kane. Sissoko, the man who has come on for

:54:37.:54:56.

Harry Kane and his first action is to give the ball away to Johansen.

:54:57.:55:11.

Just a little cameo for Sissoko to play in 15 minutes. It has not

:55:12.:55:15.

really come off for him since making the move from Newcastle. No, it

:55:16.:55:20.

hasn't. More consistency from him. When he gets the chance in these

:55:21.:55:25.

games he has to do more, I feel, Sissoko.

:55:26.:56:09.

Son on the move in the middle. Eriksen, now Trippier. Spurs look in

:56:10.:56:22.

the mood for more here. Eriksen. Tries the curler and Bettinelli had

:56:23.:56:26.

his angles right, he knew where that was going. Yes, just opened up for

:56:27.:56:32.

Eriksen, trying to bend it beyond Malone, use the full-back to try to

:56:33.:56:34.

block the goalkeeper. Bettinelli out in Odoi's direction.

:56:35.:56:51.

Wanyama. Vertonghen has had a nice

:56:52.:57:09.

comfortable return to first-team action, one slip aside. Sissoko beat

:57:10.:57:17.

Malone. Cleared only as far as Winks.

:57:18.:57:27.

Cairney caught by Wanyama. That's the pressure again, all three

:57:28.:57:38.

putting Cairney under pressure. Slavisa Jokanovic will know that it

:57:39.:57:45.

is not his team's day to shine now, they can resume their push for a

:57:46.:57:51.

play-off place in the championship. A little off the pace at the moment

:57:52.:57:59.

but moving in the right direction. Slavisa Jokanovic certainly having

:58:00.:58:03.

an impact on the club, they actually have 17 points more this season than

:58:04.:58:07.

they did at the same stage one year ago. Eriksen is offside. Ironic

:58:08.:58:19.

cheers from the Fulham supporters. You just feel they haven't had the

:58:20.:58:23.

lion's share of decisions today. I don't think that's the reason they

:58:24.:58:27.

have been losing the time though. I think he's got the two big calls

:58:28.:58:32.

right as well, the decisions in these games are decided on fine

:58:33.:58:36.

margins but he's done well, the assistant referee. There is someone

:58:37.:58:42.

else who has done well, Harry Winks, replaced by a former Fulham

:58:43.:58:49.

favourite, Moussa Dembele. Dele Alli, didn't quite come off for

:58:50.:59:19.

him. Johansen. Having to go backwards. Bettinelli down the

:59:20.:59:30.

middle towards Cyriac, and he wins it too. He's quick, he's made a

:59:31.:59:38.

difference, hasn't he? Looking to stretch Alderweireld, and better

:59:39.:59:44.

quality played into him as well. Tottenham have just been too good,

:59:45.:59:49.

they have been so good in every department. Defensively excellent

:59:50.:59:53.

again. Midfield brilliant, of course, moving the ball around so

:59:54.:59:57.

freely but up front is where they have been clinical.

:59:58.:00:11.

Eriksen was just caught on his heels, I don't think he believed

:00:12.:00:14.

Davies would get there. Kebano post in the back, the foul

:00:15.:00:31.

committed by Dele Alli and a free kick for Fulham. A little bit hasty

:00:32.:00:38.

to make the challenge, Alli was desperate to win the ball back.

:00:39.:01:01.

Johansen to try to work something and find some sort of consolation

:01:02.:01:07.

for Fulham which is surely all it would be now. And what a good save

:01:08.:01:18.

but the flag is up anyway. Well held by Michel Vorm. Good goalkeeping. He

:01:19.:01:25.

couldn't really come out. A good decision from the assistant. I can't

:01:26.:01:35.

recall ever seeing a Scott Parker headed goal. There might have been

:01:36.:01:40.

one or two. And I can't recall seeing Eriksen do that too often

:01:41.:01:45.

either, and aimless ball forward. Eriksen is back to his best in the

:01:46.:01:51.

last month or two. After that performance at Liverpool last week

:01:52.:01:54.

and losing in Europe come how much did Spurs need this today question

:01:55.:01:59.

of massively. A bit of pressure on after those defeats.

:02:00.:02:04.

That is why Pochettino picked such a strong team, he was looking for a

:02:05.:02:13.

response and he certainly got it. I did like that line from Richard

:02:14.:02:17.

Osman, disappointed that Tottenham did not disrespect the magic of the

:02:18.:02:24.

They certainly haven't done that -- the magic of the cup.

:02:25.:02:50.

Ben Davies getting a run in the side of the moment because Danny Rose is

:02:51.:02:55.

still out with a knee injury but I understand it will not be too long

:02:56.:02:57.

before he returns. Sissoko tried to hold away from

:02:58.:03:32.

Sessegnon. Sissoko could not beat Malone.

:03:33.:03:51.

Parker was caught by Dembele but it breaks for Sessegnon.

:03:52.:04:35.

It has been so comfortable in these positions and not just in the last

:04:36.:04:51.

five minutes but throughout the game. Spurs have been totally

:04:52.:04:56.

dominant but no pressure on the ball at all, Fulham just haven't laid a

:04:57.:04:57.

glove on them. Miscued by Malone and a chance for

:04:58.:05:21.

another Spurs change and Dele Alli is going to miss the last five

:05:22.:05:23.

minutes or so. Just to lower the average age a bit

:05:24.:05:40.

more, 20-year-old Alli is replaced by 19-year-old Josh Onomah. A

:05:41.:05:50.

frustrated looking Dele Alli. Perhaps just disappointed he has not

:05:51.:05:55.

got on the scoresheet today. He has been very good again, creative,

:05:56.:06:01.

certainly his workrate has been unquestionable.

:06:02.:06:20.

Eriksen is offside and he knows it. Tim Ream played it out. Is there to

:06:21.:06:32.

be a fourth goal for Spurs? It is the way it goes when these teams

:06:33.:06:39.

meet in the cup, they last met in 2011 and Fulham won 4-0. Before that

:06:40.:06:45.

in the fifth round in 2007 and Spurs won 4-0.

:06:46.:06:51.

It breaks for Eriksen. The shot was smothered and it is a Spurs corner.

:06:52.:07:02.

Spurs keeping the ball in tight situations but it is that injection

:07:03.:07:03.

of pace at that time from Dembele. Eriksen's body language and the pace

:07:04.:07:21.

at which he goes about everything in the game never changes, regardless

:07:22.:07:31.

of how the game is going. Eriksen will have another corner to take.

:07:32.:08:09.

Spurs will be in this evening's quarterfinal draw. 6:30pm on the BBC

:08:10.:08:20.

News Channel, Radio 5 Live and the BBC sport website. One step closer

:08:21.:08:26.

to Wembley, which is their second home at the moment anyway.

:08:27.:08:47.

A relaxed Harry Kane, having more than done his job yet again. 19

:08:48.:09:04.

goals for the season now. It is great for Pochettino that he can get

:09:05.:09:09.

him off. We didn't think he would start today with the injury concerns

:09:10.:09:13.

they had over him. But what a difference he has made. Bettinelli

:09:14.:09:20.

clause that clear and it is behind for a Spurs corner and they really

:09:21.:09:28.

are hunting down this fourth goal. So many openings, I think it was

:09:29.:09:32.

going wide. Not sure if it was a shot or a cross from Sissoko.

:09:33.:09:40.

Eriksen's corner, Bettinelli punches off the head of Onomah.

:09:41.:09:58.

And we are into injury time and there will be another three minutes.

:09:59.:10:34.

Ben Davies beats Kebano, he cannot find Son.

:10:35.:10:42.

A good leap from Cyriac, not just quick but he has a spring in him.

:10:43.:10:49.

But just so isolated, nobody to flick it onto. The Fulham players

:10:50.:10:56.

were unable to get up in the support of the striker. Obvious

:10:57.:11:02.

disappointment for three Jokanovic tonight. Totally. -- slopey so

:11:03.:11:07.

Jokanovic. . Spurs have shown their quality

:11:08.:11:27.

right from the start. Take nothing away from them, they have been

:11:28.:11:31.

excellent, a tremendous performance. Wanyama goes past the challenge and

:11:32.:11:45.

shoots and spilled by Bettinelli. Who wants the next go? A free header

:11:46.:11:52.

for Son and he will think he should have done better and hit the target.

:11:53.:11:57.

He totally will, it is a glaring opportunity and he should be doing

:11:58.:12:01.

better. A good ball again from Trippier. He has played so well

:12:02.:12:07.

today, Kieran Trippier. He has put that on a plate for him and it is a

:12:08.:12:12.

big chance. All on his own, the South Korean. He has been in good

:12:13.:12:19.

scoring form of late. He is the player who took Spurs into this

:12:20.:12:23.

round of the cup by rescuing them against Wycombe Wanderers in the

:12:24.:12:28.

last round. They were quite fortunate to get through that tie

:12:29.:12:31.

but this has been anything but am far too easy for them and they have

:12:32.:12:35.

been excellent with the right attitude from the start of the game.

:12:36.:12:43.

It is strange how cup runs are created. Spurs were 2-0 down and 3-2

:12:44.:12:49.

down at home to the League 2 side in round four and 3-2 down going into

:12:50.:12:55.

the 89th minute but a 4-3 win brought them here. And I Harry Kane

:12:56.:12:59.

hat-trick as fired them into the FA Cup quarterfinals. It has been

:13:00.:13:06.

pretty comfortable almost from the get go for Mauricio Pochettino's

:13:07.:13:10.

Premier League big guns. Fulham did not really show us what they can do.

:13:11.:13:16.

Daniel Levy will be a very content Spurs chairman and Tottenham will

:13:17.:13:20.

not be a team that many would like to be drawn against in the

:13:21.:13:27.

quarterfinals. It is Harry Kane's day, Tottenham's day, no upset at

:13:28.:13:30.

the Cottage as Spurs march on. Pretty plain sailing for the North

:13:31.:13:40.

London club at Harry Kane clutches the match ball and he deserved it,

:13:41.:13:44.

three goals for him. He has got his scoring boots back on and in time

:13:45.:13:51.

for the second leg of the Europa League coming up. All in all, Spurs

:13:52.:13:56.

were very comfortable. Completely dominated the game can exactly what

:13:57.:14:01.

they needed after two Berry poor performances. All over the park some

:14:02.:14:02.

good displays. Best very -- very poor. There is no better way

:14:03.:14:18.

to get back in Bonn -- back in form than scoring a hat-trick. Pochettino

:14:19.:14:23.

applauding the supporters and perhaps we should applaud him for

:14:24.:14:26.

playing a strong team, a lot of benefits come from that. You are

:14:27.:14:35.

right and today, an important win and they needed it. Now they can go

:14:36.:14:38.

to the next game with confidence because they need to win again. They

:14:39.:14:43.

need to win something this season and this is a chance to do so. And

:14:44.:14:47.

for Harry Kane as well, he scores the goals and finish all the effort

:14:48.:14:52.

of the team and today he was outstanding. As for Fulham, not

:14:53.:14:59.

their day at all? No, you could see the gulf in class. No disrespect to

:15:00.:15:03.

Fulham because it is a great little club but we are putting about one of

:15:04.:15:06.

the best teams in the country. If they play their game, the lowly club

:15:07.:15:12.

have no chance. That's right and Pochettino showed his intent by

:15:13.:15:16.

playing his strongest team and it was always going to be an uphill

:15:17.:15:17.

battle for Fulham to compete. All in all they dominated all over

:15:18.:15:29.

the pitch. I would say Fulham were quite naive. They can pass the ball

:15:30.:15:33.

around but when you come against a team that does it better than you

:15:34.:15:37.

have got to find a different way. We can hear from Harry Kane and Dele

:15:38.:15:45.

Alli, I believe. No, Eriksen, I've just heard.

:15:46.:15:50.

Harry, clutching the match ball, very good match for you personally

:15:51.:15:54.

and the team. Very good, we've had a few good results recently so we

:15:55.:15:59.

wanted to come here and get the win. We have done that, played well and

:16:00.:16:02.

comfortable. Robert should have had a few more goals but it was a great

:16:03.:16:06.

game all round and we are happy to be going home with the win.

:16:07.:16:11.

Pochettino was about to bring on Sissoko before you scored the third,

:16:12.:16:16.

did you know that? I thought it was going to take me off soon, when it

:16:17.:16:21.

went over the bar I thought that was the last chance I had but luckily I

:16:22.:16:26.

was able to sneak it in before I went off. A few people will be

:16:27.:16:29.

surprised to see you started today given the injury, how do you feel?

:16:30.:16:37.

It was just about icing it, compressing it, making sure it is

:16:38.:16:43.

ready for the weekend. You mentioned Eriksen set up the first two goals,

:16:44.:16:47.

you have a great partnership with Harry upfront. Of course, we played

:16:48.:16:52.

alongside each other for a long while, we know how we should make

:16:53.:16:56.

our runs and where the ball should be. We could have scored more and

:16:57.:17:01.

passed more times but overall we are happy with the win. It was your

:17:02.:17:04.

first bit of FA Cup action today, it shows what a strong team selection

:17:05.:17:09.

can do. It was more comfortable than the Wycombe game and I'm sure you

:17:10.:17:14.

are desperate to be out there starting today. Yes, of course I

:17:15.:17:26.

wanted to play today, you want to play as many games as possible. By

:17:27.:17:28.

Carrie said, we have a few tough games, we came back luckily and I

:17:29.:17:32.

think we should have been up 3-0 in the first half but we take the win.

:17:33.:17:34.

It has been cheeky the last few games, how important could that be

:17:35.:17:40.

for confidence ahead of the rest of the season? 100%, obviously winning

:17:41.:17:44.

games gives you confidence. We go into Thursday now coming off this

:17:45.:17:47.

result, we will be buzzing at Wembley. It is never easy to open

:17:48.:17:54.

the FA Cup. We made sure we did here and we have done our job.

:17:55.:18:02.

Congratulations. Well done indeed. I hat-trick for Harry Kane, let's

:18:03.:18:06.

start with the first one. In fact the first two goals were very

:18:07.:18:10.

similar, weren't they? Yes, quick thinking from Trippier. That's where

:18:11.:18:16.

you want Harry Kane, in between the sticks. That's not an easy finish,

:18:17.:18:18.

he's reaching for it. It was a top finish. He nicely

:18:19.:18:29.

guided it in even though he was at full stretch. He didn't need to do

:18:30.:18:33.

anything, just put his foot wear and make the ball go into the net. It is

:18:34.:18:38.

all about the pass in this situation. And Eriksen has certainly

:18:39.:18:45.

been passing. This pretty much killed the game, didn't it? Similar

:18:46.:18:50.

goal. Yes, with Harry today, what he did really well was he was a typical

:18:51.:18:56.

striker, he got in the right positions and have the delivery. He

:18:57.:19:01.

needs that service and once you get that, sometimes it looks easy. Tight

:19:02.:19:07.

for offside, let's have a look. It was tight, you can see the position

:19:08.:19:15.

Eriksen is in. His foot is onside, kept himself onside. Questionable

:19:16.:19:20.

defending from Fulham, but what a ball from Eriksen. Dimitar, I want

:19:21.:19:30.

to ask you about the third goal. Some you think are certain to score

:19:31.:19:36.

and some are likely to miss and Harry Kane is one you think is

:19:37.:19:40.

likely to score. Yes, he is brilliant. The moment he sees he is

:19:41.:19:49.

one on one, he is very good at this, and it is his job to score goals

:19:50.:19:53.

like this but it makes it easier, you know, better than me, when you

:19:54.:19:57.

are striker if you have people behind you and you know when you

:19:58.:20:02.

make the run they will give you the ball. We all need that. Sometimes

:20:03.:20:07.

the striker needs to be a bit selfish like we saw in the first

:20:08.:20:12.

half couple of situations, but he scores the goals and they deserved

:20:13.:20:16.

to win. Are there certain strikers when one on one you think I'm in

:20:17.:20:23.

trouble here. Definitely, Harry Kane is one of those people that over the

:20:24.:20:27.

last couple of seasons he has scored continually goals, you know he is

:20:28.:20:30.

confident and it will be a difficult job to prevent him from scoring but

:20:31.:20:35.

you do a lot of homework as well. You are trying to tap into early

:20:36.:20:38.

signs to deal with it, but more times than not it is difficult to

:20:39.:20:43.

make the save. How good is Harry Kane, what do you see in him? What's

:20:44.:20:49.

missing from his game, what do you like about his game?

:20:50.:20:52.

It is put -- good that he has players behind him who know how he

:20:53.:21:04.

plays. Harry has these people behind him who know how he plays, he knows

:21:05.:21:08.

how they play so they complement each other so everyone makes the

:21:09.:21:14.

other one better. Eriksen is passing to him. The only communication they

:21:15.:21:20.

do is great for everyone and the team so if he continues like this

:21:21.:21:24.

he's in a great place to develop and be even better. Do you think he can

:21:25.:21:31.

be world-class? I don't know, what do you think? I sincerely wish for

:21:32.:21:34.

him because I used to play for Tottenham and I watch the team so if

:21:35.:21:39.

he gets even better, you know... I will take that as a maybe. Eriksen

:21:40.:21:47.

was hugely influential in the game, wasn't he? He was, throughout the

:21:48.:21:52.

whole game he was linking up so well with Dele Alli and Harry Kane. I

:21:53.:21:57.

suppose the only thing missing was a goal at the end of it. Little passes

:21:58.:22:03.

like that, he makes it look so easy. He just always sees the right pass

:22:04.:22:08.

as well, always in space is finding the right passes and he is one of

:22:09.:22:11.

those players that when he receives the ball, everyone else starts

:22:12.:22:14.

moving thinking they have a chance to get on the end of something

:22:15.:22:17.

because they know he can find them. Lovely passes to Son. Look at that,

:22:18.:22:30.

Dele Alli should do much better there. That was one of the

:22:31.:22:33.

opportunities winning the ball back for his side. And listen, he wants

:22:34.:22:40.

to score. He knew, I want to score, but in the end he was Man of the

:22:41.:22:46.

Match. That is a man who has been highly influential, dominating the

:22:47.:22:50.

game in the midfield areas, making sure his team are getting chances. I

:22:51.:22:56.

think for Spurs to have a successful season, to finish at least in the

:22:57.:23:00.

top four, Eriksen has to be the one that performs well week in, week

:23:01.:23:07.

out. We are just about out of time. Dimitar Berbatov, thank you for

:23:08.:23:11.

joining us and Jermaine is well of course. A quick reminder we will be

:23:12.:23:17.

back at Sutton, a magical tyke. That's it from us. Spurs are

:23:18.:23:24.

through, with Harry Kane showing he is capable of taking them all the

:23:25.:23:26.

way. Goodbye. COMMENTATOR: And all London

:23:27.:23:31.

clash of Wester versus north. Eriksen across to Harry Kane, who

:23:32.:23:41.

stretches to score. That was Johansen. Wide. A great ball in,

:23:42.:23:50.

finished by Harry Kane. One Fulham goal could really change the feel of

:23:51.:23:57.

things. Harry Kane, onside, into the goal to score his hat-trick. It

:23:58.:24:02.

I've got enemies in South Cerney, I've got enemies in North Cerney,

:24:03.:24:08.

I've got enemies in Bourton-on-the-Water.

:24:09.:24:11.
