Tottenham snatch victory over Wycombe with last kick in seven-goal thriller

FA Cup fourth round, White Hart Lane – Tottenham 4 (Son 60, 90+7, Janssen 64 pen, Alli 89) Wycombe 3 (Hayes 23 36 pen, Thompson 83)

 Tottenham struck twice in the closing stages to snatch a barely-deserved 4-3 win over League Two side Wycombe.

The ragged hosts – who twice fought back from a losing position – levelled through substitute Dele Alli, before Son Hueng-min’s deflected effort broke visiting hearts deep in injury time.

An inspired performance from the Chairboys saw them 2-0 ahead at the break courtesy of a Paul Hayes brace, but their lead was wiped out when Son and Vincent Janssen netted in a mad four-minute spell after the restart.

Undeterred, Wycombe refuelled hopes of a huge upset when substitute Garry Thompson headed home in the 83rd minute, while Spurs were reduced to 10 men as Kieran Trippier hobbled off with all three replacements used.

However, Alli’s fine individual effort sparked a dramatic finale – both sides pouring forward in search of a winner as the fourth official’s board announced six minutes of injury time – before Son’s effort, virtually the last kick of the game, struck an opponent and flew in.
