31st January 2016

4. Nacer Chadli (Tottenham)

Belgium international Chadli struck once in both halves to help his Tottenham side to a 4-1 victory away at Colchester United of League One.

The 26-year-old opened the scoring in the 22nd minute as he fired home from the edge of the area past Norwich City loanee Jake Kean’s outstretched hand.

Spurs’ Chadli now has three goals in three appearances in this season’s FA Cup campaign.

He then had an opportunity to double his tally for the afternoon but he saw his effort cannon back off the crossbar after Harry Kane had squared the ball to him.

After Eric Dier had extended Spurs’ lead, the winger headed home Kieran Tripper’s right-sided cross.

Ben Davies then notched in his own goal to give the U’s hope but Tom Carroll settled the game and set up a fifth-round tie at home to Crystal Palace.
