Carlo Ancelotti, a man schooled in Serie A, and Jose Mourinho – Jose Mourinho! – must wonder how their teams have just played out a nine-goal thriller of glorious nonsense. The old pals embrace warmly..

Harry Kane trudges off sadly; Tom Davies goes on a long Duncan Fergusonesque arcing run. Everton continue to have Tottenham’s number in the FA Cup; that’s their fourth win over Spurs in a row.

Their hope of a first trophy since the 1995 FA Cup remains alive. Tottenham’s wish for their first silverware since the 2008 League Cup will now depend on the League Cup final against Manchester City and a run in the Europa League

An incredible game ends and it’s Everton that advance to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup courtesy of a 5-4 victory over Tottenham after extra-time. Bernard scored the decisive goal after both teams cancelled each other in normal time. Richarlison and Davinson Sanchez both scored braces for their respective sides, while there were also goals for Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Erik Lamela and Harry Kane in an enthralling 90 minutes. However, Bernard rose to the occasion with a crisp finish to send the Toffees into the last eight for the first time in five years.
