Tottenham Hotspur are through to the next round of FA Cup after successfully negotiating a tricky replay at home to Newport County on Wednesday night.
After initially drawing with the League Two outfit at Rodney Parade, the mid-week match in the midst of a busy schedule was unwanted, but Mauricio Pochettino’s side put together a professional performance to make it through comfortably by two goals to nil.
An own goal and an Erik Lamela effort were enough for the win, pleasing supporters who harbour hopes of winning significant silverware this season.
It was a night that Pochettino played some fringe stars, with matches against Arsenal and Juventus on the horizon.
One of those was 20-year-old defensive prospect Juan Foyth, who was making just his sixth start for the club since joining last summer.
Supporters were delighted with his composed performance, believing he has all the tools to go on and become a success at the club.
The next step in his progress will be seeing how he fares in Premier League action but, for now, fans are happy to appreciate his talents in cup competitions.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
I thought Foyth did well last night. Always looks calm on the ball. #thfc

Thought Juan Foyth looked decent again tonight and is growing game-by-game, very confident in possession and learning off the best in centre-backs with Vertonghen and Alderweireld around him. #COYS#THFC
