Liverpool, Tottenham secure comeback wins in FA Cup

Liverpool
midfielder Fabinho scored twice, including a first-half penalty, while Kaide
Gordon and Roberto Firmino also got on the score sheet for the Merseyside club.

Shrewsbury’s
Daniel Udoh put the visitors ahead in the 27th minute after he slid in
Nathanael Ogbeta’s cross to score from close range, but Liverpool winger Gordon
found the equaliser seven minutes later with a calm finish.

Brazil
international Fabinho scored a penalty before halftime, sending Shrewsbury
keeper Marko Marosi the wrong way, before Firmino added the third in the 78th
minute with a brilliant back-heel effort from close range.

Fabinho
completed his double in the 93rd minute, blasting the ball into the roof of the
net from a tight angle as Liverpool won with manager Juergen Klopp back on the
touchline following his recovery from COVID-19.

Tottenham’s
Harry Kane and Lucas Moura scored late to complete a comeback for Antonio
Conte’s team, who were greeted with a huge chorus of boos from fans after a
disappointing first-half performance.

Morecambe,
who are battling relegation in League One, stunned their Premier League
opponents after Anthony O’Connor scored in the 33rd minute.

Tottenham
paid the price for sloppy defending when O’Connor side-footed a volley into the
net from Morecambe’s first corner of the game.

After a
string of chances, Tottenham finally levelled in the 74th minute through Harry
Winks when he swung in a direct free-kick from the left touchline.

The hosts
hit the front nine minutes later when Moura rounded keeper Trevor Carson after
striding into the box before Kane wrapped up the win after being smartly picked
out by Giovani Lo Celso.
