Middlesbrough, United Kingdom, March 1, 2022 (AFP) – Tottenham were again eliminated on Tuesday, this time from the FA Cup Round of 16, after losing 1-0 in extra time to Middlesbrough (second tier). Manchester City and Crystal Palace ensured their survival in the quarter-finals.
Shaken after losing to Burnley (1-0) six days ago, and in an improvement after Saturday’s 4-0 win over Leeds, Spurs squandered their last shot at their title of the season.
The task was not easy in front of the Middlesbrough team, which knocked out Manchester United on penalties at Old Trafford.
And ‘Boro’ confirmed that he knows how to be at the level of the big teams of the so-called ‘Big 6’ in one knockout match.
The winning goal, in extra time (107), was scored by 19-year-old Josh Coburn, who entered the field in the 95th minute.
– City and Palace ahead – Prior to this, Manchester City achieved what was expected against Peterborough (second tier), which despite a good defense at no time gave the impression that it would be able to eliminate the Premier League leaders.
In this match in which Fernandinho left the captain’s armband for Ukrainian Oleksandr Zinchenko, in a gesture of solidarity with the country that suffered from the Russian invasion, it took an hour of playing to see the first goal scored by Algerian Riyad Mahrez.
Seven minutes later, Jack Grealish doubled the lead after receiving Phil Foden’s weight (67).
Crystal Palace, another Premier League team, which played this Tuesday in the Round of 16, also beat Stoke City of the Second Division with a score of 2-1.
The team led by Patrick Vieira opened the scoring by Shekho Kouyate, in a good position to take advantage of Jean-Philippe Mateta’s shot that deflected after a corner kick (53).
But after 5 minutes, taking advantage of a very negative defense by the “Eagles”, Josh Timon just (58).
Dutchman Jairo Redwald was part of the London team in the quarter-finals. He recovered the ball from the edge of the area, crossed by the goalkeeper badly and scored with a low shot (82).
