Tottenham needed three goals in the final five minutes as they survived an FA Cup scare to overcome a spirited Wycombe 4-1 on Monday.
Fred Onyedinma slotted Wycombe ahead midway through the first half as a much-changed Spurs were punished for their early wastefulness at Adams Park.
Gareth Bale hauled Spurs level on the stroke of half-time, converting his fourth presentable chance, but a stubborn Wycombe refused to roll over, forcing Jose Mourinho to turn his star-studded bench to avoid extra-time.
And, with four minutes remaining, Spurs' quality finally told as Harry Winks' first FA Cup goal and a late double from Tanguy Ndombele set up a fifth-round tie away at Everton.

How Spurs overcame spirited Wycombe
Mourinho handed Bale a rare start and the chance to prove a point after a spell out of the team, but the Welshman squandered a golden opportunity inside five minutes when he headed Lucas Moura's corner wide when the goal was at his mercy.
Wycombe showed no signs of a side who had gone 16 days without a game due to a coronavirus outbreak, and responded well as Admiral Muskwe's near-post header had to be clawed off the line by Joe Hart.
- Jack Grimmer and Curtis Thompson returned as Wycombe made two changes from their third-round victory over Preston.
- Ben Davies was the only player to retain his place as Spurs made 10 changes from the Premier League victory at Sheffield United.
Bale wasted another decent opportunity soon after, dragging a shot wide at the near post, and those misses proved costly as Wycombe struck first on 25 minutes.
Uche Ikpeazu got the better of Toby Alderweireld down the right and his cross was not cleared by Davinson Sanchez, who could only divert it into the path of Onyedinma to fire home.
