Goals from Connor Wickham and Andros Townsend helped earn Crystal Palace a place in the FA Cup fifth round at Tottenham's expense.

Connor Wickham scored his first goal in more than two years as Crystal Palace compounded a miserable week for Tottenham with a 2-0 FA Cup fourth-round win at Selhurst Park.

Wickham had not started a match for Palace since November 2016, thanks largely to a long-term knee injury, but he needed just nine minutes to score his first goal in 799 days as a Spurs side featuring eight changes started slowly.

Palace kept the pressure on and won a penalty that ex-Spurs winger Andros Townsend converted after 34 minutes, and when Tottenham won a spot-kick of their own at the other end Kieran Trippier blasted it well wide.

Spurs improved in the second half with Erik Lamela on the pitch but, in the absence of the injured Dele Alli and Harry Kane, Mauricio Pochettino's men – who were knocked out of the EFL Cup semi-finals by Chelsea on Thursday – lacked the cutting edge to prise Roy Hodgson's determined Palace side apart.
