FA Cup roundup: Liverpool advance; Spurs, Burnley draw to set up replay

1 Comment

The field for the fourth round of the 2014-15 FA Cup is all set — for the most part. With the exception of two more games on Tuesday and seven (thus far) third-round replays, the field and matchups are all set following Monday’s draw and results.

Liverpool resisted a valiant AFC Wimbledon performance at Kingsmeadow to knock out the League Two side and see themselves through to the fourth round, where they’ll face Bolton Wanderers. Meanwhile, Premier League sides Burnley and Tottenham Hotspur played to a 1-1 draw in front of just 9,348 spectators — 2,494 of which were traveling Spurs supporters — at Turf Moor.

Steven Gerrard’s brace was the story of the day following a weekend in which the Liverpool legend also dominated headlines, announcing he will leave the club at the end of the season and reportedly sign with MLS side LA Galaxy.

Gerrard’s goals came on 12 and 62 minutes, bookending an Adebayo Akinfenwa equalizer which set the social media world ablaze as the 238-pounder put The Dons back on level terms (pictured above) and within reach of a famous victory 10 minutes before halftime. Gerrard’s second goal, a free kick that dipped under the bar at the near post from 22 yards out, was the best of the bunch.

Nacer Chadli scored to put Tottenham 1-0 up on Burnley after 56 minutes, but Sam Vokes equalized to force a third-round replay for the right to host Leicester City in the fourth round.
