But Spurs snatch late victor against

However, Wycombe sent shockwaves across the home support when they took the lead again in the 83rd minute, but the game turned when Tottenham found the equaliser in the 89th minute through a Dele Alli goal.

Speaking after the game, Pochettino said: "They were much better than us in the first half - full credit to them".

Against the run of play, the visitors struck what seemed like a victor late on.

"It was hard for me when I arrived in England to say the FA Cup is magic, or 'the beauty of the FA Cup, ' but now I realize it is a special competition", Pochettino said.

After Son Heung-min and Vincent Janssen brought Spurs level it seemed there would only be one victor but the visitors had other ideas as substitute Garry Thompson headed them back in front with six minutes left. It was very hard for us.

Pochettino commented that "we don't want to take any risk, so for sure they won't be available for Saturday but we hope all three will be available for Tuesday" when Spurs travel to the Stadium of Light to face Sunderland. It was hard for me from day one when I arrived [in England] four years ago to say, 'Oh the FA Cup is attractive or the FA Cup is magical.' Now I realise that it's a special competition.

"They had a clear way to play".

"Maybe that is the beauty of the FA Cup and the different levels of the teams", he said.

"This is the FA Cup".

The tone for a frenetic tie was set after just two minutes when Wycombe hit the bar - and then raced into a two goal lead through Wycombe skipper Paul Hayes.

Wycombe were unfortunate not to secure a replay at the very least, having been the better side for large parts of the encounter at White Hart Lane. "It is the most special competition in the world because you can not replicate the same passion and the same atmosphere on the pitch in Spain, France or Italy".

"You get the small sides like of Wycombe with players from League Two who are exciting and they believe that they can beat us here". What we have done today puts a marker down of how far we've come. That is the important thing that the FA Cup creates, that feeling. "But I wish them all the best in their league and it was a pleasure to play against a team like Wycombe".
