West Ham performed a sensational late comeback to beat Tim Sherwood’s Spurs by 2-1 at White Hart Lane.
It represents West Ham’s second win away at Spurs this season, following the surprise 3-0 drubbing back in October.
The first half was was dominated by the home side but in truth was a bit of a drab affair with both teams just managing only one shot on target.
Spurs took the lead in the second half when Emmanuel Adebayor scored his first goal since May with a superb volley following a cross from fellow striker Jermaine Defoe.
West Ham made three changes, bringing of Ravel Morrison, Modibo Maiga and Mohamed Diame as they looked to change the game back in their favour.
The Hammers levelled the match with ten minutes to go when Matt Taylor found Matt Jarvis on the left side of the area who then smashed in past Lloris in the Spurs net.
West Ham continue to push for the winner and it was with five minutes from time left when one of the substitutes Maiga grabbed the winner when he headed in from fellow substitute Diame’s right-wing cross.
Spurs came out hunting for an equaliser and West Ham’s deputy goal keeper Adrian did well to save getting down low to claw out Gylfi Sigurdsson’s shot from 10 yards.
It was West Ham who had a great chance to extend their lead in stoppage time when they raced clear on the counter attack before the match winner Maiga crashed an effort against the cross bar.
West Ham will face Manchester City in the semi finals.
