Son Heung-Min leads Tottenham past Leicester, Liverpool move on vs. Exeter

The ESPN FC crew break down Tottenham's 2-0 victory over Leicester City in the FA Cup.

Tottenham secured passage to the next round of the FA Cup after beating Leicester City 2-0 in a third-round replay.

Son Heung-Min opened the scoring for Mauricio Pochettino's team in the 39th minute. 

It was the first time all season that Leicester, who played without Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez, went an entire first half at home without creating any scoring chances from the run of play.

Nacer Chadli doubled the visitors' lead in the second half when Son played the Belgian through with a nice ball into the penalty area that Chadli slotted past Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel.

The teams were facing each other for the third time since their first FA Cup meeting on Jan. 10, which ended in a 2-2 draw and forced Wednesday's replay.

Leicester got the better of Spurs by a final scoreline of 1-0 in a Premier League match sandwiched between the two FA Cup matches.

Tottenham will play Colchester United in the fourth round of the FA Cup on the weekend of Jan. 30.

The ESPN FC panel weigh in on Liverpool's 3-0 victory over Exeter, in which Christian Benteke failed to score.

Maiden Liverpool goals for youngsters Sheyi Ojo and Joao Carlos Teixeira sealed a 3-0 FA Cup third-round replay victory over Exeter.

Midfielder Joe Allen's second in as many matches had set the Reds on their way to a home meeting with West Ham a week on Saturday, but it was members of Jurgen Klopp's reserves who finished the job.

The way in which teenage substitute Ojo, recalled early from a loan spell with Wolves, curled a brilliant effort past Bobby Olejnik provided a lesson in finishing for an out-of-sorts Christian Benteke who looked anything but a £32 million Belgium international against a League Two defence.

Klopp made three changes from the scratch side he fielded in the previous tie, bringing in some experience in goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, Allen and Jordon Ibe while handing Tiago Ilori, Brad Smith and Kevin Stewart their senior Anfield debuts.

Confidence shown by the likes of youngsters Joao Carlos Teixeira, whose sublime cross with the outside of his right foot was among his many contributions, Cameron Brannagan and Brad Smith was not so evident in Benteke.

He was hailed pre-match by Klopp as "a complete striker'' as the German offered a defence for the summer signing's troubles but he looked far from it.
