FA Cup 'magic' no surprise to Pochettino after Rochdale thriller

It seemed Harry Kane's penalty two minutes from time, which made it 2-1 to the visitors, had seen Spurs straight into the last eight.

Debutant Lucas Moura levelled the proceeding after 59-minutes as he latched onto a superb assist from Moussa Sissoko.

Rochdale's relaid pitch is like a "snooker table" ahead of their FA Cup clash with Tottenham, according to chairman Chris Dunphy.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has apologised to Rochdale after he said their pitch "posed a "massive risk" to his players as it was "not in a condition to play football".

Spurs entered the game having beaten AFC Wimbledon 3-0 in the third round before a 1-1 draw at Newport County in the last round, which they eventually won 2-0 in the replay.

Tottenham's somewhat list of big games have ended and are set to travel to Rochdale for their FA Cup 5th round tie, as Pochettino could give his key men some rest and ring changes to his side.

Llorente struggled to impose himself on the game and was replaced by Harry Kane to provide Spurs with a threat in front of goal.

Harry Kane and Lucas Moura looked to have spared spared Spurs' blushes with second half goals as the Premier League side came from behind.

Saturday's fifth-round late kickoff also featured English football's latest video-assisted referee (VAR) decision when United's Juan Mata had a goal disallowed after being ruled fractionally offside before the interval. "For me, it will be a tougher game than Juventus", he said. "This is why I don't like it but I am not the person who makes the decision".

The controversy over Rochdale's turf - or lack of it - had frustrated a club who, as their manager put it, "are massively overachieving, even though we're at the bottom of League One", but they demonstrated who and what they really are against Spurs: stylish and fearless. They then had four senior players interviewed by Spanish police over the alleged theft of a taxi from outside a fast-food restaurant in Barcelona. "I was far from happy over them".

The winners will face either Swansea City or Sheffield Wednesday in the quarter finals. "That happens. We concede two clear chances, one was almost and one was a goal". Jonson Clarke-Harris scored Coventry's consolation.
