Liverpool hit six but Spurs suffer stalemate

Tottenham Hotspur FC were involved in the biggest surprise of the FA Cup fifth round as they drew 0-0 with third-tier Stevenage FC, while Liverpool FC hit six to reach the last eight.

Despite riding high in the Premier League, Tottenham Hotspur FC face an FA Cup fifth round replay after being held to a goalless draw by third-tier Stevenage FC.

Harry Redknapp's men beat Newcastle United FC 5-0 last weekend and lie third in the top tier, but they were unable to find a way past a well-organised Stevenage side on Sunday. The north London outfit did engineer a handful of chances, Michael Dawson going particularly close, but they must now overcome Stevenage at White Hart Lane if they are to book a last-eight date at home to Bolton Wanderers FC.

The winners in the day's other two ties, Liverpool FC and Stoke City FC, will lock horns in their own quarter-final, meanwhile. Stoke, last season's runners-up, beat fourth-tier Crawley Town FC 2-0 despite the first-half dismissal of Rory Delap, while the Reds defeated Brighton and Hove Albion FC 6-1 with the help of three own goals.
