However Tottenham failed to search out the online for a fifth time, whereas Everton thanked a substitute of their very own as Brazilian ace Bernard got here off the bench to attain a nice successful objective to ship the Merseysiders to the quarter-finals with a 5-Four win.
And it was an final result that certainly had Spurs followers throughout the nation rolling they eyes, and talkSPORT host Andy Goldstein couldn’t resist rubbing the salt of their wounds after the ultimate whistle.

“It’s not just below Jose, both, it’s simply Tottenham. I actually can’t work out how Spurs are going to get by means of this as a membership. It’s not the supervisor. It’s simply Tottenham!”
“However that wasn’t a Spursy outcome,” argued fellow host and ex-Tottenham defender Jason Cundy.
“They scored 4 objectives tonight, away from house, they usually’re nonetheless out. They couldn’t have executed way more…
“However what a sport. We sat by means of a stinkfest yesterday at Outdated Trafford, however that tonight, it was among the best cup ties I’ve EVER seen. It was simply sensible. Defending was a large number at occasions, however all out assault, going to the jugular, each side led the sport…
“However Spurs conceded 5, and should you concede 5, you’re going to exit.”
After the sport Mourinho admitted there have been ‘issues he did like’, and ‘issues he didn’t like’ in regards to the sport, which is honest after seeing your staff rating 4 away from house… but additionally let in 5.
And it was a night that will hang-out Lloris for some time, after a poor efficiency which noticed him responsible of his newest massive blunder within the Spurs web, as he let Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s shot slip by means of his fingers to present Everton their essential equaliser, from which the floodgates opened.
