Belgian international them completed the scoring just minutes from time, after his 25-yard effort as deflected in to give Spurs a comfortable 3-0 over the League 1 minnows.
Player of the Match
It had to be him, didn’t it?
Spurs’ forward talisman Harry Kane was immense today, with the striker’s two goals going a long to way to helping his side secure their place in the fourth round.
The 24-year-old took both of goals just as you would expect him to, with Kane now sitting on 26 goals in all competitions, it remains to be seen just how many goals the striker can achieve this season.

Harry Kane. Always on target. Always in the back of the net. World Class.

Stat of the Match
This from Opta wouldn’t have filled Wimbledon fans with any confidence going into the match today, and rightly so!
1975 – Tottenham haven’t lost a home #FACup match against a side from a lower division since a third round replay vs Nottingham Forest in 1975, winning 30 and drawing seven since. Tyranny.
