Tottenham  squeezed past Watford 1-0 to advance to the last 16 of the FA Cup on Friday. Spurs midfielder Rafael van der Vaart scored the only goal at Vicarage Road as Redknapp was given cause to smile after a demanding week which has seen him in the dock of a London court on trial for tax evasion.

Earlier, Everton came from behind to defeat Fulham 2-1 in a hardfought battle at Goodison Park. A goal 17 minutes from time from Everton's Marouane Fellaini clinched victory for the Toffees, who had equalised through Denis Stracqualursi after Danny Murphy put Fulham ahead from the penalty spot.
