Ledley King's Talking Points

Jose Mourinho admitted Spurs were in trouble without an injured Harry Kane, after it took a Lucas Moura equaliser to earn a third-round FA Cup replay against Boro. "When we were losing 1-0 without strikers or the power to play inside their defensive line with lots of bodies and great soul, at that moment I had the feeling of we are in trouble,” said Mourinho.

Everton’s wait for a win at Anfield now covers 21 calendar years after Curtis Jones settled the Merseyside derby with a superb 71st-minute curler. Klopp used a much-rotated side but the Reds outworked Everton in typical style to see out the 1-0 win.

Tranmere overturned a three-goal deficit against Watford to secure a replay at Prenton Park in the FA Cup 3rd round. The Hornets were three goals up after 35 minutes, but the League One strugglers built momentum and pulled it back in the second half with a late penalty earning the replay.

Sheffield Wednesday knocked a top-flight side out of the FA Cup for the first time since 1993 with their 1-0 win over Brighton. The Seagulls were semi-finalists last season but fell at the first hurdle here thanks to Adam Reach’s second-half strike.

Sunderland earned their first home victory since the beginning of November with three first-half goals. The Black Cats ended 3-1 winners over Lincoln in League One’s only game of the weekend, moving to within a point of the playoffs.

Ian Holloway made the perfect start as Grimsby’s new boss, with a 1-0 win over Mansfield despite playing with 10 men for 80 minutes. A Mal Benning own goal in the second half made all the difference. 

Cheltenham’s first victory in six matches moved them back into the League Two play-off positions, with a goal from debutant Alfie May helping the Robins to a 3-0 win against Oldham.
