Wycombe regained the lead thanks to Thompson's wonderful header, but late, late strikes from Son and Dele Alli deny the Chairboys an upset.

GOAL! Tottenham 4-3 Wycombe (Son)

Son works the ball from the left hand side and slots past Blackman to break Wycombe hearts. The drive takes a deflection off O'Brien and gets Tottenham out of jail. Credit to the Chairboys, who have given everything tonight.

An incredible header from Thompson gives Wycombe the lead thanks to some excellent work by Weston, who delivered a sumputous cross for his team-mate to finish magnificently. Incredible scenes at White Hart Lane.

GOAL! Chelsea 4-0 Brentford (Batshuayi)

Batshuayi dispatches his spot-kick past Bentley after Ivanovic got in front of Egan, who can have no complaints. The Belgian has worked tremendously hard this afternoon and deserves his goal. Take note, Liverpool and Tottenham

GOAL! Oxford 2-0 Newcastle United (Nelson)

Pedro has really settled into life at Stamford Bridge. He has been replaced by Costa.

Trippier has had to succumb to injury and Tottenham are now playing with 10 men. Wycombe captain Hayes has also gone off; can his teammates capitalise on Spurs's misfortune?

Here's Janssen squeezing his penalty past Blackman. Wycombe now hanging on for a replay.

Vincent Janssen

Diego Costa is set to come on for Chelsea, but his services are not needed. The Bees showed heart in the second half but Ivanovic's goal has put the game beyond doubt.

GOAL! Rochdale 0-3 Huddersfield Town (Hefele)

GOAL! Crystal Palace 0-2 Manchester City (Sane)

Tottenham huffing and puffing against Wycombe but have not found a breakthrough yet. Son creates space but his effort is snaffled, while Janssen's claims for a penalty were ignored.

Brentford have started the second half with renewed vigour after being utterly dominated for the entire first half, but Chelsea are still comfortable.

GOAL! Oxford 1-0 Newcastle United (Hemmings)

What a start to the second half by Oxford!

Vincent Janssen replaces N'Koudou for Spurs as Pochettino changes his system for the second half. The misfiring forward has not enjoyed the best of starts to life at White Hart Lane, but could he be the man to spark a revival against Wycombe?

The Chairboys are somewhat excited about proceedings at White Hart Lane.

As it stands Tottenham are set to outdo Liverpool, but not in the way they would have hoped.

Pochettino's men are deservedly 2-0 behind to League Two outfit Wycombe, thanks to a brace from Paul Hayes.

Chelsea have no interest in giving their lesser opponents a sniff of an upset and are cruising to a comfortable win over Brentford. 2-0 at Stamford Bridge at half-time.

Middlesbrough are being held at home by Accrington Stanley, Blackburn are beating Blackpool 2-0 in the Lancashire Derby, Lincoln's fairytale is in danger of ending, Huddersfield are beating Rochdale 1-0 at Spotland, while it's goalless between Oxford and Newcastle at the Kassam Stadium.

All to play for in the second period.

HALF-TIME - Tottenham 0-2 Wycombe

HALF-TIME - Crystal Palace 0-1 Manchester City, Middlesbrough 0-0 Accrington Stanley, Blackburn 2-0 Blackpool, Burnley 1-0 Bristol City

HALF-TIME - Chelsea 2-0 Brentford

GOAL! Burnley 1-0 Bristol City (Vokes)

Vokes slots in a Defour cross on the stroke of half-time to give the Clarets the breakthrough against Bristol, who were giving as good as they got up until then.

City almost double their lead but Hennessey denies Jesus with a fantastic save. The former Palmeiras man is right in the thick of the action at the moment, and seems to be developing a rapport with Sterling.

Goal! Rochdale 0-1 Huddersfield Town (Quaner)

GOAL! Crystal Palace 0-1 Manchester City (Sterling)

Lovely ball from Jesus into the path of Sterling, who gets the better of Hennessey one-on-one and finishes calmly under the Welshman.

Spurs now pushing hard for a way back. Trippier tests Wycombe's backline with some teasing delivieres but Ainsworth's men stay strong. Dele Alli could be required sooner rather than later.

A still of Willian executing his sublime free-kick for your viewing pleasure.


GOAL! Tottenham 0-2 Wycombe (Hayes)

Hayes makes no mistake from the spot as he fires past Vorm, who does get a foot to the ball. Carter-Vickers foolishly brought down Wood in the box, and the referee had no choice. Spurs with it all to do.


The Chairboys are in dreamland at White Hart Lane. Can they hold on?

Chelsea denied a third once again! Pedro is adjudged offside as he lays the ball into the path of Batshuayi, who fires past Bentley. Still 2-0.

Sissoko plays in Son who draws a wonderful save from Blackman. Spurs should perhaps be level but are starting to come alive against the League Two side, who are still holding their own as it stands.

Chalobah almost gives Chelsea a three-goal cushion but he is denied by goalline technology. Antonio Conte's men completely on top so far.

GOAL! Lincoln City 0-1 Brighton (Towell)

GOAL! Tottenham 0-1 Wycombe (Hayes)

The Wycombe captain makes amends for his earlier miss by volleying across Vorm from a corner. Could we be about to witness a second giantkilling?

GOAL! Blackburn 2-0 Blackpool (Bennett)

Bennett unleashes a ferocious shot that the Tangerines just cannot do anything about.

GOAL! Chelsea 2-0 Brentford (Pedro)

The Spaniard asserts Chelsea's dominance against Brentford by doubling his side's lead. The winger made the most of Loftus-Cheek's intelligent play to calmly finish under Bentley.

Willian has become somewhat of a free-kick specialist in recent seasons.

Akinfenwa, or 'Beast', getting right in the thick of it against Dier and co.

Akinfenwa causing Spurs' defence problems. Wycombe going direct and getting some joy out of doing so.

Not much happening at White Hart Lane so far. Wycombe's Wood attempts a speculative effort but it's never troubling Vorm.

GOAL! Chelsea 1-0 Brentford (Willian)

A sumptuous free-kick from the Brazilian. Bentley could do nothing about it. Conte's men learning from the mistakes of Liverpool.

Silva draws a good save from Hennessey. The Spaniard then appeals for a penalty after being tripped by Ledley, but the referee waves away his protests.

Lincoln have had a goal disallowed for offside. Robinson thinks he has taken the lead but the linesman seems to have made the right call.

Goal! Blackburn 1-0 Blackpool (Gallagher)

A bullet header from the forward. Will that spark proceedings into life?

Nothing much of note happening around the grounds so far. Not many people in the stands at Selhurst Park either. Crystal Palace not struck by FA Cup fever, it seems.

Wycombe have hit the bar at White Hart Lane! Paul Hayes somehow hits the top of crossbar from just yards out after latching onto an Akinfenwa knockdown. Tottenham survive an early scare.

Kick off just seconds away at Selhurst Park and the rest of grounds.

Selhurst Park

It's every game now... we'll find out if the clash between the two London outfits delivers any 'I was there' moments.

A touch of class from Tottenham as they pay tribute stricken former midfielder Ryan Mason.

The three o'clockers will get underway in less than 15 minutes. Will we see any more upsets like the one at Anfield?

And what does the defeat by Wolves mean for Liverpool's season? Three defeats in eight days, out of both domestic competitions. Not looking good for Klopp's men.

Jurgen Klopp

Blackburn Rovers and Blackpool are one of nine FA Cup fourth round ties taking place this afternoon.

Newcastle United and Oxford United are set to lock horns at the Kassam Stadium.

Lincoln City will be hoping to add to their FA Cup fairytale against Brighton and Hove Albion this afternoon. Danny Cowley's men sprung an upset in the third round by beatin Ipswich Town.

That's all she wrote for Liverpool! Jurgen Klopp's men have been knocked out by Wolves to cap a dreadful week at Anfield.

Divock Origi halved the deficit from close-range but it was too little, too late. Check out our liveblog for a recap of the action.

There is an FA Cup clash happening as we speak. Liverpool are currently losing 2-0 to Championship outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield and are in serious danger of becoming the story of the round for all the wrong reasons.

Jurgen Klopp's men were also knocked out of the EFL Cup by Southampton in midweek, and with their title hopes already hanging by a thread, the Reds' season could well peter out against Paul Lambert's men.

Asmir Begovic looks set to start for Chelsea against Brentford at Stamford Bridge, but the game against the Bees could be his last for the league leaders as speculation over his future refuses to go away.

Branislav Ivanovic may also be given a rare start, though he seems close to a move to Zenit St Petersburg. With one eye on his side's clash against Liverpool on Tuesday, Antonio Conte may see fit to rotate his players and give outings to the likes of Michy Batshuayi and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Asmir Begovic

Tottenham have little choice but to ring the changes against Wycombe.

Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld and Harry Kane have all been ruled out of the clash at White Hart Lane, while Jan Vertonghen is still out of action after suffering ankle ligament damage a couple of weeks ago.

Will Wycombe forward Adebayo Akinfenwa be able to take advantage of Spurs' defensive crisis?
