Fulham have cruised into the last 16 of the FA Cup following this surprise 4-0 demolition of Tottenham Hotspur at Craven Cottage.

Danny Murphy scored from the spot 11 minutes in before he added a second penalty three minutes later after Michael Dawson was sent off for tugging back Moussa Dembele in the box.

Brede Hangeland stabbed home to make it 3-0 before Dembele rifled home a blistering strike just before half-time to seal the impressive win and set up a fifth round tie at home to either Bolton or Wigan.

Pienaar was lucky not to be booked when he hacked down Duff after 71 minutes.

Murphy received a standing ovation when he departed two minutes later to be replaced by Jonathan Greening.

The home crowd taunted their north London rivals as they struggled to get hold of the ball.

The match’s tempo had dropped to that of a practice match by the time Simon Davies replaced Dembele with 10 minutes left.

A rare move down the Tottenham right allowed Hutton to cross for Crouch but the England striker was muscled off the ball by John Pantsil, who cleared deep inside his own box.

Fulham turned up the heat and almost had a fifth in the 87th minute when Aaron Hughes’ glancing header hit the bar from Duff’s corner.

Gera had a golden chance to add another a minute later but Gomes saved with his feet from the Hungarian’s 12-yard shot and Fulham had to settle for four.
