GOAL FLASH! Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Middlesbrough

(2′ mins): Lucas Moura had cancelled out Ashley Fletcher’s opener in the initial tie at the Riverside Stadium, setting the scene for an N17 replay. And on a wet, blustery night where ‘Storm Brendan’ was the main cause of concern for those making their way to the match – Tottenham made a lightning start.

Giovani Lo Celso seized on a wayward clearance from Tomas Mejias – the Argentine steadied himself, before comfortably dispatching, left-footed, beyond the stricken Boro stopper. Barely two minutes had been played.
