Thanks to an astonishing 5-4 win over Tottenham at Goodison Park, EVERTON reached the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
Although Davinson Sanchez (x2), Erik Lamela, and Harry Kane scored for Spurs, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison (x2), Gylfi Sigurdsson, and Bernard scored for the Toffees.
Yet another classic of the FA Cup, and it was Everton who advanced to the FA Cup quarter-finals.
“After the game, Spurs boss Jose Mourinho gave BT Sports his post-match thoughts: “I enjoyed it, and I didn’t enjoy it. When we had the ball, I enjoyed the way we played.
We had the ball, we made it, fantastic dynamics, great movement, goals for the score.
Great character to fight against errors, but just win games when you attack football if you don’t make more defensive mistakes than you make.
It hurts everyone in our squad because the feeling is that when we had the ball, we played very well.
We fight back, we make more errors, then we fight back again. We can’t sob. We have to play on Saturday and go to the Europa League next week.
“After the game, the man of the match Sigurdsson spoke to BT Sports: “It was too open-ended, too many targets.
“Good to watch, perhaps, but I’m not going to lie. It was terrific to come back.
We have conceded three corner goals or set pieces, which is something that we need to take a look at.
But the spirit in the team is great to come back and finally go through.
Sitting at home and watching was probably awesome, but for our taste, too accessible.
But it’s a brilliant cup game, and it’s awesome to compete anyway! ”
The strike by Bernard is the gap on both sides. Within the opposition penalty area, Spurs dominated the ball, completed more passes, had more shots on goal AND more touches. But it wasn’t enough to make it past the high-flying Ancelotti Toffees!
