Goodson Park was on fire as Tottenham Hotspurs and Everton exchanged fireworks to book a place in quarterfinals of the Emirates FA Cup this evening.

Visitors commanded a lead within three minutes of play through a well placed header from their defender Davinson Sanchez.

Tottenham created a couple fo chances afterwards but they could not find back of the net.

The match seemed to be going for a halftime with two sides separated with that single goal.

However, Everton could not endure trailing beyond 36th minute of play when their English striker Calvert-Lewin pulled back 1 goal.

Two minutes later, Calvert-Lewin set the Brazilian winger Richarlison who slotted a well placed left footed strike to take the home team 2-1 up before captain Sigurdsson concluded their winning ambitions of the first half with a penalty 5 minutes later.

Visitors who seemed to have been dismantled bounced back in the game in the injury time of the first half (45+3’) through Argentine Eric Lamela, sending the match to half time 3-2 in favour of hosts.

As teams came from half time, Tottenham continued to push for an equalizer until they found it in the 57th minute of play through their Defender Sanchez again.

Eleven minutes later, the highly spirited Everton restored their lead again through Richarlison who replicated his earlier strike, beating the World Cup winner goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris.

Complacency seemed to have crippled the hosts afterwards as the visitors dominated the game from the minute they scored until the 83rd minute when Tottenham through Harry Kane pulled back an equalizer.

Non of the teams could break the deadlock untill the referee blowed a full time whistle with the match standing at 4 all.

As the match proceeded to the extra time, the hosts did not waste any time as they restored a lead again 7 minutes from kick off through the Brazilian Bernard.

Despite the fighting spirit which the visitors were exhibiting, it could not produce any results as the match ended 5-4 in favour of Everton.

Sheffield United also outshined Bristol City in their 1 nil victory to book the spot in quarterfinals as well.
