Another year without titles: Tottenham lost to Middlesbrough and said goodbye to the chances of lifting a trophy in 2022. The FA Cup left us with another surprise with the victory of the second division team over a Big Six managed by Antonio Conte.

After eliminating Manchester United in the previous round, Middlesbrough pulled off another feat against one of the Premier League’s big guns by disposing of Tottenham 1-0 in extra time to reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
Boro made good on their home form at the Riverside to shock Antonio Conte’s Tottenham, who spared no headlines but will go another season without a single title.

The painful end for Harry Kane, who will add another year without winning a trophy and ended in despair with his team’s inability to beat a Championship side.
Spurs did not have a good game but could have taken the lead at half-time when Matt Doherty had the clearest chance, dribbling past Middlesbrough keeper Joe Lumley on a poor clearance, but was unable to hit an empty net.

The winger also had the best chance of the second half with a shot from the edge of the area that went just wide of the post, but as the minutes ticked away, Middlesbrough began to tighten up and came close to snatching the win in stoppage time, most notably with a header from Jonny Howson that Hugo Lloris had to keep out, but it went wide.
With the score at 0-0 after 90 minutes, it went to extra time and after an insipid first half, Middlesbrough’s surprise came.
The home side found space down the left flank for Sergio Reguilon and Matt Crooks slipped a good ball through for 19-year-old Joshua Coburn, who advanced just wide to fire past Lloris.

Madness at the Riverside and Chris Wilder’s side withstood Tottenham’s late onslaught to see off another Big Six side in this FA Cup.
Tottenham has now gone another year without winning a title, the last thing they lifted was an English Football League Cup in 2008, now the Carabao Cup, and they continue to be the laughing stock of English soccer.
On the other hand, Middlesbrough will return to the quarterfinals three years later and join Manchester City, Crystal Palace, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Southampton, while Everton and Boreham Wood will play for their place today and Nottingham Forest and Huddersfield will meet on March 7.
