In the 35th minute of tonight’s FA Cup encounter between Premier League sides Tottenham Hotspur and Everton, Spurs gifted their opponents a route back into the match.
Ben Davies passed the ball into Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and the otherwise impressive summer signing endured a moment to forget as a horrific heavy first-touch saw Abdoulaye Doucoure win the ball.
It was shuttled into Alex Iwobi, with the former Arsenal man slotting it to Gylfi Sigurdsson, who in turn took a touch and flicked it into the path of Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
The England international got to the ball ahead of Toby Alderweireld and fired a powerful first-time shot at goal, which Hugo Lloris couldn’t stop at all as his attempt to parry the ball actually looped it in.
