Fulham crush Spurs, Arsenal scrape through

London: Fulham crushed Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur 4-0, 10-man Arsenal scraped a 2-1 win over League One Huddersfield and big-spending Manchester City drew 1-1 with Notts County in the FA Cup fourth round.

Tottenham, fifth in the Premier League and looking forward to the Champions League knockout stages, conceded two penalties and a red card in the first 14 minutes at Craven Cottage and were 4-0 down to Fulham by halftime.

Arsenal played just over half the match a man down after Sebastien Squillaci was sent off and they were being held by (third division) Huddersfield until Cesc Fabregas came off the bench to score an 86th-minute penalty.

Manchester City needed a goal from Edin Dzeko 10 minutes from time to earn a 1-1 draw at third division Notts County while Nenad Milijas missed a last-minute penalty for Wolverhampton Wanderers as his side lost 1-0 to Stoke City.

Nigeria striker Victor Obinna hit a hat-trick as West Ham United beat Nottingham Forest 3-2.

The fifth-round draw also took place on Sunday and produced a classic tie as Crawley, the first minor league club to reach the last 16 for 17 years, were handed a dream trip to Manchester United.

Orient were also rewarded for two upset wins with a home tie against Arsenal and holders Chelsea, should they win their home replay with Everton, will host Reading.
