    Time:90'
    • Tottenham Hotspur
    • Fulham
    • 90+5 And that's it for Fulham! Spurs deservedly win 3-1, and leave Fulham looking to Europe for a trophy this year
    • 90+4 The Spurs fans are celebrating now, as Harry Redknapp is surely now on his way to the semi-final against his old side Portsmouth
    • 90+4 Fulham have a corner, which Etuhu meets but can't direct towards goal
    • 90+3 We've played the allotted time now, as Hangeland launches the ball forward
    • 90+2 Bassong goes down for Spurs, but it doesn't look too serious as he limps he off the field for treatment. The seconds are being eaten up here
    • 90+1 Duff and and Okaka are looking lively for Fulham. Duff gets the ball wide right and crosses to Okaka. The ball hits Dawson and bounces invitingly for Okaka but his eye is off the ball and the danger is cleared
    • 90' There's going to be 3 minutes of added time, enough for Roy's Fulham to find a way back?
    • 89' Fulham are pressing now, as they have to, with Tottenham penned back in their own area
    • 88' Looks like it's just a knock though, as the former Barcelona man makes his way back onto the pitch
    • 87' Gudjohnsen is receiveing treatment for Spurs
    • 86' It's a deserved accolade for Bentley, who's crossing and final-ball delivery has been spectacular, a stark contrast to Spurs in the first half
    • 86' David Bentley is named man of the match, after an incredible impact scoring one and setting up another
    • 85' Spurs sitting back now, obviously content with the two-goal lead
    • 84' Bassong clears, only for Duff to win another, more central free-kick, which Murphy floats into Gomes's hands.
    • 83' Foul by Bale on Duff on the touchline, Duff whips it in and it BOUNCES DANGEROUSLY!
    • 82' Time's running out for Fulham here, as Gera's low shot from distance fails to trouble Gomes
    • 80' It's getting scrappy now. The ball bounces around the Tottenham box but Dawson and Palacios hurl themselves in front of the ball before Duff skews his shot wide
    • 79' The sub gets caught in possession immediately, surrendering the ball to Huddlestone
    • 77' Fulham will need a huge impact from Okaka if they're to force their way back into this match
    • 76' Change for Fulham: Zamora comes off for the on-loan Stefano Okaka
    • 75' His weak effort hits Dawson though and goes out for a corner, which Fulham fail to capitalise on
    • 75' Murphy gets the ball in space in the centre, plays the ball through to DEMPSEY WHO LINES ONE UP!
    • 74' They're moving the ball better now, passing the ball around the midfield but failing to cause a threat
    • 73' Fulham regain possession through Hughes, and look to keep the ball themselves
    • 72' Fulham looking tired now, Tottenham moving the ball around the pitch with ease
    • 71' Dempsey looks to make an impact immediately, sending the ball long to Zamora on the edge of the area. Chests down for DUNN TO STRIKE WITH FORCE!! Straight at Gomes though. Either side and it would've gone in
    • 70' The Fulham manager looks furious now, seeing his side being totally overrun by Tottenham's second half performance
    • 68' Fulham replace Stephen Kelly with Clint Dempsey, Roy Hodgson forced to take the game to Spurs now
    • 67' 3-1 to Tottenham, and it's hard to see Fulham coming back from this, such is Spurs dominance at the moment.
    • 66' AND ROUNDS SCHWARZER BEFORE POKING HOME FOR TOTTENHAM'S THIRD!!!
    • 66' Gudjohnsen plays a one-two and FINDS SPACE IN THE AREA!
    • 65' Bentley gets the ball on the Spurs right and toys with the Fulham defence, eventually playing the ball back to Gudjohnsen in the centre
    • 64' He fails to bring the ball under control though, and Spurs win the ball back again through Dawson
    • 64' Fulham regain possession and look to pick out Zamora
    • 63' Tottenham have another couple of half-opportunities through Pavlyuchenko's shot from range and Modric again missing the target
    • 62' Bale takes his time to get up from that challenge, Harry Redknapp will be feeling the pressure having made all his changes...
    • 61' Bale takes a knock from Zamora on the half-way line, and the Englishman needs to be careful here having already been booked!
    • 60' The substitutes have completely changed this game, and Pavlyuchenko's rich run of form has continued
    • 59' Which drops invitingly for ROMAN PAVLYUCHENKO TO DRIVE IN AT THE NEAR POST!! 2-1 SPURS!!
    • 59' Bentley finds space down the Fulham right, and sends a high cross to the far post
    • 57' Zamora's getting frustrated here. He tugs Bassong deep in the Spurs area, and Bassong lashes out. It's handbags from both, and they deservedly end up in the book.
    • 55' Tottenham are now totally in control of the game, Bentley sending another sumptuous ball into the Fulham box which goes just beyond the Spurs forwards
    • 54' Harry Redknapp has now made all his substitutions, and will be hoping the game doesn't go into injury-time
    • 53' The enforced substitution sees Bentley drop to right-back, with Pavlyuchenko going upfront with Crouch and Gudjohnsen dropping in behind. A rather attacking line-up, all in all
    • 52' The Croatian full-back has to come off, with Pavlyuchenko coming on in his stead
    • 51' Corluka comes off second best after a tangle with Davies, and it looks like he won't be able to continue
    • 49' And what an impact from the substitute, hats off to Bentley and Harry Redknapp
    • 48' The atmosphere has just gone up a few notches, with White Hart Lane rocking now
    • 47' A devilishly whipped free-kick from Bentley eludes everyone and finds the net. Not sure he meant it but it was a horrible delivery to defend
    • 46' AND SCORES! TOTTENHAM EQUALIZE!
    • 46' And Bentley lines up the free kick
    • 46' Stephen Kelly goes into the book for a rash tackle on Gareth Bale
    • 45' And the Martin Atkinson gets us underway for the second half
    • 45' Changes for Tottenham, with David Bentley and Tom Huddlestone coming on for Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Nico Krancjar
    • 45+1' I wonder what Jamie O'Hara will be thinking now...
    • 45+1' Tottenham looked dangerous at times, but failed to threated Mark Schwarzer for much of the half, their final-ball too often letting them down
    • 45+1' A wonderful start for Fulham, fully deserving their half-time lead
    • 45+1' And the referee blows his whistle for half-time! Just one minute of added time played.
    • 44' He sends the ball over the bar though, having tried arch the ball over Gomes
    • 44' Gera finds space and sends a back-post CROSS FOR ZAMORA!
    • 44' Fulham still in possession, they seem to have regained their composure and look comfortable on the ball
    • 43' Gera sends Zamora free down the right wing, the big target man holding the ball up waiting for support
    • 42' Great interplay from Crouch and Gudjohnsen again inside the Fulham area, but again the final ball goes harmlessly back to the Fulham defence
    • 40' Fabio Cappello is looking on tonight. Wonder what he made of Zamora's slick, first-time finish...
    • 39' The resulting free kick fails to find a Fulham head, though, and Danny Murphy gets the ball back only to blaze over from 30 yards
    • 38' The Spurs full-back brings Duff down to concede a free kick right on the touchline
    • 38' Assou-Ekotto's slip gives Duff an opportunity to scurry down the wing
    • 37' Crouch chests a long-ball down to Modric, who fizzes along the edge of the Fulham area but again the final ball fails to finds its target
    • 36' Tottenham looking far more lively than Fulham now, Palacios seeing Krancjar in acres of space in the Fulham box but failing to find him
    • 35' Bale is having success along the Spurs left. Wins a corner from Simon Kelly but it leads to nothing
    • 33' And it's Bale to take it left-footed! Curls it harmlessly over the Fulham bar
    • 32' Tottenham have a free kick 30 yards from goal, Etuhu having felled the onrushing Krancjar
    • 30' Etuhu's bid to find Duff down the right fails as the ball races out of play for a goal-kick. Fulham are struggling to find a way through again
    • 29' Spurs are starting to find gaps in the stubborn Fulham defence, but have still only managed to test Schwarzer once
    • 29' And again the little Croat fails to hit the target!!
    • 29' Gudjohnsen chests it through for Modric to hit
    • 29, Spurs have the ball again as Bale crosses for Gudjohnsen

    • 28' Crouch takes it down but the Dawson gets a touch which falls to GUDJOHNSEN WHO FLICKS IN TOWARDS THE GOAL FROM 3 YARDS!
    • 27' Spurs get a throw deep in the Fulham half and it goes long to Crouch
    • 26' Duff to take! Too long for the red shirts to get onto though and it goes out for a goal kick
    • 24' Modric concedes a free kick in the Spurs half an Hangeland goes forward
    • 23' This is an incredibly energetic performance from Fulham, showing no hang-over from their league defeat to Man City at the weekend
    • 22' Eidur Gudjohnsen takes the ball out wide to Fulham's left and feeds the ball to Crouch! The big striker can;t turn though and again Fulham smother the white shirts
    • 21' It's a deserved lead for Roy Hodgson's side, who have come to White Hart Lane intent on attacking
    • 20' Questions will be asked of Luca Modric who, having just missed a golden opportunity himself, failed to track back and stifle Duff before his through ball for the goal
    • 19' Fulham's incredible cup form continues
    • 19' 1-0 to Fulham
    • 18' Duff has the ball on the Fulham right and feeds the ball through TO ZAMORA WHO CURLS THE BALL INSIDE THE RIGHT POST!
    • 17' Fails to get a shot away though, a well organised Fulham defence is giving nothing away
    • 17' Modric plays a lovely 1-2 with Gudjohnsen and runs into the box!
    • 16' Spurs try to switch the ball to Assou-Ekotto again but the tireless Zamora is back to pick it up and regain possession

    • 14' Fulham have possession but the long ball to Zamora goes out of play and Tottenham have a goal kick
    • 13' Spurs have the ball and switch it from right to left, Assou-Ekotto trying to feed Bale but Dawson again comes across to smother the ball

    • 11' Davies is given acres of space in the middle of the pitch and hits it well from 30 yards! Again Gomes is in the way though
    • 10' Both teams going at it here, moving the ball around well

    • 7' The Spurs defence holds, and regain possession

    • - Confident you can predict the result? EurosportBET
    • - Bobby Zamora and Damien Duff are Fulham's top Cup scorers so far, with two goals apiece.
    • - Jermain Defoe has scored the most goals for Tottenham in this year's Cup run with 5, but will be watching this match from the stands having torn his hamstring.

    • - Welcome to tonight's LIVE coverage from White Hart Lane
    • - Tottenham striker Roman Pavlyuchenko is doubtful for tonight's FA Cup quarter-final replay with Fulham after suffering a hamstring injury at Stoke. Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is hoping David Rose (knee) and David Bentley (virus) will be passed fit. Younes Kaboul is cup-tied but Wilson Palacios returns to the midfield after being rested for the league win at Stoke because he is one booking away from a two-match ban. Tottenham team page
    • - Fulham boss Roy Hodgson will make a late check on Brede Hangeland's chest injury ahead of the match at White Hart Lane. Hangeland missed the defeat to Manchester City at the weekend but Hodgson rested Bobby Zamora and Zoltan Gera for much of the second half to keep them fresh for the tonight's clash. Andrew Johnson and John Pantsil remain in the treatment room, while David Elm has been ill. Fulham team page
