Tottenham left it late to overcome a stubborn and spirited Wycombe side and progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Wycombe, bottom of the Championship, had stunned their Premier League opponents when Fred Onyedinma slotted in the opener midway through the first half.

But Gareth Bale marked a rare start with the equaliser just before half-time, hooking in Lucas Moura’s cross.

Tottenham upped the pressure in the second half but Wycombe repelled numerous attacks as they looked set to take the game to extra time before Harry Winks curled home to give Spurs the lead with minutes to go.

Tanguy Ndombele ensured there would be no late drama when he finished from close range then stabbed home a fourth in injury time to set Tottenham up with a fifth-round tie at Everton.
