County were the best side in the first half at a fervent Rodney Parade and Irish striker Padraig Amond headed them into a deserved 38th-minute lead.

Egypt striker Salah gave seven-time FA Cup winners Liverpool hope in the 78th minute with his 25th goal in just 32 appearances for the Reds, but Alan Pardew's Premier League strugglers still booked their place in the last 16.

Kane linked with Fernando Llorente but ballooned his effort as Spurs tried to get themselves going, but with the half-hour approaching Vorm was again the keeper in the action as he gathered a Robbie Willmott free-kick under pressure.

He sounded most alarmed about why his side had performed so poorly, even if the Rodney Parade experience―battling to avoid defeat in a tight stadium on a pitch shared by two rugby teams―really did look like a culture shock to some.

The 27-year-old was the standout performer in the first half with his neat passing and tough tackling, only for a 32nd-minute booking to put a brake on his excellent display.

"It's easy to say we want win trophies, but we missed a massive opportunity today to show we wanted it", said Spurs manager Pochettino.
