Tottenham lost 1-0 to Chris Wilder’s team in fifth-round extra-time at the Riverside Stadium. Tottenham’s performance was below average, including their All-Star duo Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, defeated by Middlesbrough 1-0 after extra time on Tuesday night. Tottenham have lost three of their five Premier League games and won two since beating Brighton in the FA Cup last round, and they will be in contention for a Champions League spot. It was Middlesbrough’s second consecutive FA Cup victory over a Premier League side after knocking out Manchester United on penalties a few weeks ago.
Middlesbrough was heading into the fifth round of the FA Cup after defeating Manchester United on penalties in the previous game. It looked to add another scalp to the Premier League by welcoming Tottenham Hotspur to Riverside Stadium. Middlesbrough will join Manchester City, and Crystal Palace in the quarter-finals after both Premier League teams have won victories of their own. Middlesbrough produced another shock in the FA Cup by extending Tottenham’s long wait for a silver medal with a win after extra-time at Riverside on Tuesday as Manchester City advanced to the quarter-finals with a win over Peterborough with 2-0. Early in the second extra period, a goal gave Second Division Middlesbrough a 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in the fifth round of Tuesday’s tournament.
Substitute Josh Coburn scored a convincing extra-time winner as Middlesbrough stunned Tottenham Hotspur to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals. Middlesbrough’s Josh Coburn came off the bench to score the only goal with Hugo Lloris in the 107th minute. Middlesbrough was by far the brightest team in extra time and received the Middlesbrough honours when Middlesbrough’s Josh Coburn ran through Lloris from Matt Crookes on the ball. The 19-year-old Josh Coburn stayed in the game to run through and break a rising goal in the top corner.
Middlesbrough has been the top team all along, booking their place in the quarter-finals and making sure Tottenham end another season without a trophy after a miserable performance at Teesside. The shipment ensured it would be another trophy-free season for Tottenham, whose last silverware was the League Cup in 2008. Tottenham have not lifted a trophy since winning the League Cup in 2008, and another extremely disappointing defeat raises further questions about the future of manager Antonio Conte. Meanwhile, Tottenham has lost seven of Tottenham’s 13 games in 2022, though Antonio Conte has been much calmer after being stunned than his Premier League defeat to Burnley a few days ago.
Exiting the FA Cup means Tottenham’s last trophy win remained Juande Ramos’ Carabao Cup in 2008, then 2009, 2015 and 2021 Carabao Cup finals, and 2019 Lost in the Premier League.
