West Ham vs Leeds: Minute 88
Jack Harrison’s cross from the left towards Daniel James was missed by West Ham center-back Craig Dawson, which meant the Welshman had a great chance to equalise, but he wasn’t fully aware and didn’t make a good contact.
Tottenham vs Morecambe: Minute 88
GOAL FOR SPURS! The game has now been put beyond doubt, as Harry Kane has grabbed Spurs’ third goal. Tottenham 3-1 Morecambe.

GOAL FOR LIVERPOOL! Liverpool have now opened up a two-goal lead after Roberto Firmino backheeled the ball into the back of the net, following Conor Bradley’s cross. Liverpool 3-1 Shrewsbury.

Tottenham vs Morecambe: Minute 74
GOAL FOR SPURS! Harry Winks’ free-kick evaded everyone and flew over the headed of the Morecambe goalkeeper. Tottenham 1-1 Morecambe.
Tottenham vs Morecambe: Minute 69
Conte has turned to his bench as he looks to turn things around, with Harry Kane, Lucas Moura and Oliver Skipp replacing Bryan Gil, Tanguy Ndombele and Dele Alli. Ndombele came off to boos and walked straight down the tunnel.
West Ham vs Leeds: Minute 68
Junior Firpo, who collided with teammate Illan Meslier at the end of the first half, is still feeling the aftereffects and has been withdrawn in what is a concussion substitution. Cody Dramah has come on for him.
Liverpool vs Shrewsbury: Minute 63
There are more attacking reinforcements coming on for Liverpool, as Roberto Firmino replaces Elijah Dixon-Bonner. The Reds will be keen to grab a third goal and all but secure their place in the fourth round.
Tottenham vs Morecambe: Minute 61
Ryan Sessegnon had a good chance to pull Spurs level, but he dragged his effort wide from inside the area. It’s still 1-0 to Morecambe at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Liverpool vs Shrewsbury: Minute 58
Takumi Minamino has made an impressive impact since coming on at half time, having replaced Max Woltman, as he is causing all sorts of problems for the Shrewsbury defence. At the moment, though, Liverpool have been unable to add to their 2-1 lead.
Tottenham vs Morecambe: Minute 55
There has been no major improvement from the hosts just yet, as they still trail 1-0. Surely it won’t be long until Antonio Conte has to bring on Harry Kane.
West Ham vs Leeds: Minute 52
Antonio got through a couple of defenders and picked out Jarrod Bowen, whose low shot was well saved by Meslier.
The second halves of the 2pm kick-offs are now underway.

Could another giant-killing be on the way? Morecambe take a shock lead at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium through O’Connor’s strike.
Minute 24: West Ham vs Leeds: Big penalty shout
Craig Dawson appears to nudge the ball with his arm as he goes to head clear, but the referee is not interested in the Leeds protests.
Minute 22: Spurs vs Morecambe: Doherty hits the post
A corner from the right evades everyone apart from Matt Doherty at the back post, who tries to direct the ball towards the goal but can only find the post.
Minute 14: Wolves vs Sheffield United: Podence scores
Daniel Podence continues on from his fine performance at Old Trafford by putting Wolves ahead at Molineux.
Minute 10: Spurs vs Morecambe: Rodon error almost costly
Spurs have dominated in the opening exchanges, but Joe Rodon’s short backpass is almost seized upon, but for the intervention of Gollini.
