A blistering spell of three goals in seven minutes helped Tottenham ease into the quarter-finals of the Carling Cup with a 4-2 win over Liverpool at the Lane on Wednesday night, writes Ben McPartland.
The holders, who made seven changes from Sunday's league win over Manchester City, forced the breakthrough on 38 minutes when Fraizer Campbell pulled the ball back for Roman Pavlyuchenko to score.
Campbell then grabbed his first goal for Spurs just four minutes later, slotting home after a mix-up in the Liverpool defence.
