FA Cup fourth round replay: Tottenham Hotspur 2 Newport County 0

Erik Lamela scored his first goal in 17 months as Tottenham Hotspur sauntered past Newport County and into the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Newport held Spurs to a 1-1 draw at home 10 days ago but the League Two side were outclassed at Wembley, where a Dan Butler own goal and Lamela’s close-range finish sealed a comfortable 2-0 victory.

Tottenham will face League One strugglers Rochdale for a place in the quarter-finals as Mauricio Pochettino’s men edged one step closer to ending the club’s 10-year wait for a trophy.
