Liverpool, Tottenham win after Cup scares

LONDON – Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur were given scares before eventually beating lower-league sides in the third round of the FA Cup on Sunday, while West Ham United ousted Leeds United in an all-Premier League clash, and Arsenal lost to Nottingham Forest for the second time in four years.

Liverpool came from a goal down to win 4-1 against third-tier Shrewsbury Town, while Tottenham left it late before fighting back and then pulling away to beat Morecambe 3-1, with a battling display in the second half.

West Ham won 2-0 against Leeds, who were without ten first-team players, including striker Patrick Bamford, and Forest beat Arsenal 1-0, thanks to a late strike from substitute Lewis Grabban.

Liverpool midfielder Fabinho scored twice, including a first-half penalty, while Kaide Gordon and Roberto Firmino also got on the score sheet for the Merseyside club at Anfield. (Reuters)
