    Tottenham 2-0 Newport County

    Here's the full match report from Michael Pearlman, who was at Wembley this evening.

    He says Tottenham "cruised" into the next round and he's named Son Heung-Min his Man of the Match.

    "Son transformed the first match and his sparkle in attack meant this was a comfortable night for Spurs, who took the South Korean off after an hour, no doubt with Arsenal in mind."

    Tottenham had a number of players returning from injury this evening and two of them gave their reactions following the 2-0 win.

    Toby Alderweireld: "We did our job. It is more difficult than you think. We tried to play the best football we could and make the next round.

    Erik Lamela: "I was out for a long time and it was difficult for me but I am back playing now and it is good to get a goal. We have a very good team and we need everyone fit to fight for places."

  7. 'Players have done themselves and the club proud'

    Tottenham 2-0 Newport County

    Newport County manager Michael Flynn, speaking to BBC: "It was always going to be difficult. It was a good start in the first 25 minutes, but the manner of the goal, the way it went in, it took it out of the boys and deflated them.

    "I am very proud of the players and very proud of the players this evening. They put in a huge amount of work and they have done themselves and the club proud and we should have scored at the end.

    "I want to keep progressing in the league and keep progressing year in, year out. We have time to add to the squad and improve things."

  8. Post update

    Here's the thoughts of Newport County manager Michael Flynn...

    Tottenham 2-0 Newport County

    Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino speaking to BBC: "It's the FA Cup and it's difficult. But I am happy because we wanted to be in the next round.

    "It's important they [Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld, Erik Lamela etc.] are all fit so we can be competitive. We need all the players available.

    "Son Heung-min is doing fantastic this season and he feels important.

    "It is important to keep going and winning games. We are going to be very busy in the Premier League, Champions League and the FA Cup but we want to keep this run.

    "I haven't seen the pitch at Rochdale but I heard about it. First, we need to think about Saturday, but it will be tough to win again in the FA Cup. It's step by step now."

  11. 'A great effort'

    Tottenham 2-0 Newport County

    Newport County goalkeeper Joe Day, speaking on BBC Radio 5 live: "It is a great effort from the lads. There is no shame in losing 2-0 to them. I am proud of the team and proud of the lads.

    "The game plan was to stay in the game for as long as we could, but with a [first goal] like that, it is unfortunate. I have gone for the line of the ball and it has taken a deflection.

    "We can take a lot of confidence. Over two legs against Tottenham we have held our own for the majority of the game."

    Paul Collins: Spurs are frustrating. They are so good to watch but they never win a trophy, they waste too many chances and their players throw themselves down like they've been shot at slightest.

    Vincent Tan: I thought Son should get man of the match. He's just a delight to watch. Whenever he gets the ball, you'll sit up knowing that something will happen.

  13. Llorente misses another great opportunity to score

    The story is about Newport with the replay and the finances, but Spurs were professional. They wanted to go into the next round and they wanted to go to Rochdale and Mauricio Pochettino wants to win the FA Cup.

    Newport can be proud. The scoreline is respectful, but it could have been worse if Tottenham had been more clinical.

    So that's it. Tottenham are through to the next round.

    There was no giant killing and no goal celebrations for the travelling Newport fans in Wembley but their team were able to hold out in that second half.

    Spurs missed a whole host of chances after the break - can they afford to do the same against Arsenal this weekend?

  18. 'Spurs were too good for them'

    Tottenham 2-0 Newport County

    John Hartson

    Former Wales striker on 5 Live

    Spurs were too good for them after the first 10 minutes when Newport started well, they looked up for it in the first 10 minutes. But after that own goal from Dan Butler which put Spurs in front, from then they have controlled the game. They have missed several good opportunities to score and the score could have been worse for Newport. But they go away respectful and they can be proud the game has finished 2-0. Spurs at times have been outstanding with their movement.


    Tottenham 2-0 Newport County
