• Ellie Roebuck saves penalty as City make FA Cup quarter-finals

Tottenham were given another look at the level they need to reach to be competitive in the Women’s Super League should they win promotion as goals from the captain Steph Houghton, Lauren Hemp and Gemma Bonner, along with a penalty save from Ellie Roebuck, ensured Manchester City cruised into the FA Cup quarter-finals.

“There’s another two levels, there’s the top-top, the top-four, and then there’s the rest. We know we can compete at that level,” said the Spurs manager, Karen Hills, whose team held off City for much of the first half. “We’re semi-professional and they’re full-time – if it got evened up who knows? We know we’re not a million miles off and what the girls did was fantastic. The crowd were brilliant today and hopefully they can be proud of the girls.”

It was an incredible thrill for him, being up close to Cristiano Ronaldo and all of the rest, but not least because first and foremost Winks is a Spurs fan who started going to home games with his father, Gary, when he was six or seven. By then, Winks had joined the club’s academy. He was five when that happened.
