Fulham’s FA Cup campaign came to an end in the Fifth Round as a Harry Kane hat-trick earned Tottenham Hotspur a 3-0 win.

Fulham’s Emirates FA Cup campaign came to an end in the Fifth Round as a Harry Kane hat-trick earned Tottenham Hotspur a 3-0 win at Craven Cottage.

The visitors created the better chances in the first half, and took a slender lead into the break when Kane converted a Christian Eriksen cross.

The England man made it two soon after the restart in similar circumstances, before securing his treble and making the game safe with a clinical 73rd minute finish.

There were four changes to the side that beat Wigan Athletic in the week, with Tomas Kalas recovering from injury to take the place of Ragnar Sigurdsson, while Neeskens Kebano, Scott Malone and Marcus Bettinelli came in for Lucas Piazon, Ryan Sessegnon and David Button.

Four minutes in Dele Alli’s ball sent Christian Eriksen in on goal. Kalas got back well and attempted a sliding tackle that rushed him into taking a low shot which was tipped behind by Bettinelli.

Fulham’s first effort arrived in the 11th minute when Stefan Johansen’s corner was cleared as far as Malone 30 yards out. He used his take-down to wrong foot a Spurs defender and edge towards goal, but he dragged his shot wide of the far post.

The visitors took the lead     with little more than quarter of an hour played when Kieran Trippier’s quick throw-in set Eriksen free, and his cross was easily converted by the outstretched toe of Kane.

It could have been worse a minute later when Alli brilliantly plucked a long ball out of the air in the box, but Bettinelli was equal to his effort.

Fulham were gifted a chance to equalise on 20 minutes when Michel Vorm passed the ball straight to Cairney, but he got into position quickly to save the Fulham captain’s first time shot.

A hairy moment five minutes later saw Cairney accidentally play the ball straight to Kane. He slipped Eriksen who shanked his effort high and wide, to the relief of the apologetic Cairney.

Three minutes before half-time Johansen got Bettinelli out of jail, brilliantly tackling Kane on the edge of the box after the England striker had intercepted Bettinelli’s pass.

Another mistake, this time by Jan Vertonghen, presented Fulham with an opening in first half stoppage time. After his miscontrol, the ball eventually dropped to Johansen 20 yards out, but his volley – while well hit – just missed its target and flew wide.

The action wasn’t over yet, with Ayité just failing to get a proper connection on Malone’s inviting cross, and Aluko then firing into the palms of Vorm as the hosts ended the half on top.

Six minutes after the restart Kane got his second off the afternoon when he got around the back of Tim Ream to turn home Eriksen’s inviting cross.

Fulham’s first substitution of the afternoon saw Sessegnon come on for Ayité.

It should have been 3-0 before the hour mark when another dangerous Eriksen delivery seemed to be on a plate for Alli, but Denis Odoi put him off sufficiently and he skied his close range volley.

Cyriac then replaced Aluko in a move that saw the January signing go up top, with Kebano moving to the wing.

Eriksen has been a creative dynamo all game and he threatened to add his name to the scoresheet in the 69th minute when he won possession and skipped beyond Ream, but as he went to pull the trigger Kevin McDonald came from nowhere to put in a magnificent sliding challenge.

Kane then missed the chance for his hat-trick when he lofted the ball over the bar when well placed, but it was perhaps justice after the chance came from a Spurs free-kick that never should have been awarded, when Johansen was penalised for having been kicked by Alli.

The Whites then went as close as they had all game when McDonald got a firm connection on Johansen’s corner, but sent his header inches over the bar.

Kane secured the matchball when he again sprung the offside trap to get on the end of Alli’s throughball and coolly smash his effort between Bettinelli and the near post.

That was his last action of the game as he was replaced by Moussa Sissoko, moments after Scott Parker had come on for McDonald.

Parker’s introduction was appreciated by all four sides of the ground, as was the subsequent change which saw former Fulham favourite Mousa Dembélé take Harry Winks’ place on the field.

The final substitution of the afternoon saw Joshua Onomah come on for Alli with four minutes to go.

With the result all but confirmed, the match had petered out somewhat in the closing stages, but Bettinelli still had to be alert to make a fine reflex save to keep out Sissoko’s skewed cross, before then punching away the subsequent corner.

Tottenham could have extended their lead in stoppage time but Bettinelli as good stop to repel Victor Wanyama’s powerful drive, before Heung-Min Son sent a free header miles over the bar with the final opening of the game.
