Palace dump Spurs out of FA Cup amid penalty farce

Pochettino and Solskjaer

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has been backed to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Man Utd

In the end, 2-0 was how the score remained as Spurs bow out of another competition just days after losing to Chelsea in the Carabao Cup semi-final.

Connor Wickham marked his first start since November 2016 with a goal before a penalty by ex-Spurs midfielder Andros Townsend doubled the lead.

With Harry Kane and Dele Alli injured, and Son Heung-min travelling back from the Asian Cup, Tottenham lacked a cutting edge in attack as they squandered numerous chances to get back into the game, including a penalty that Kieran Trippier missed.

This reverse left Mauricio Pochettino still searching for his first trophy as Tottenham manager since the Argentinian joined from Southampton in 2014, with Spurs' last piece of silverware the 2008 League Cup.
