Tottenham, Saints Progress In FA Cup

Tottenham Hotspur stormed back from 2-0 down to beat Burnley 4-2 in their FA Cup third-round replay on Wednesday despite mirroring the other Premier League sides by resting their main striker.
.
Red-hot Harry Kane watched from the bench as Danny Rose sealed the home win for Spurs after Burnley, who gave Danny Ings a breather, had scored twice in the first eight minutes.
.
The overbearing significance of the Premier League in modern football was underlined by Southampton also resting top scorer Graziano Pelle for much of their replay at second tier Ipswich Town.
.
Fellow forward Shane Long, however, took his chance with a remarkably instinctive finish after 19 minutes in a dour 1-0 win.
.
The “magic of the Cup” was still in evidence in Wednesday’s other replay though as third tier Bradford City thumped second tier Millwall 4-0 at home to set up a fourth-round trip to Premier League leaders Chelsea a week on Saturday.
