If you are to cause a Cup shock then favourable alignment of the stars is a clear prerequisite. It is true that Tottenham, lucid and authoritative throughout against opponents who are bottom of League One, deserved this victory, but an equally fair observation would be that the cosmos demurred at Colchester’s hour of need.Their centre-backs, Alex Wynter and Tom Eastman, were substituted within the first 20 minutes after an early collision. Tottenham made full use of the resulting disarray and might have scored many more than their eventual four, but the home side’s cruel luck made the application shown in their performance, particularly a spirited second half, a minor achievement of its own.
