Tottenham Hotspur progressed to the next round of the FA Cup as they eased past AFC Wimbledon at Wembley Stadium and fans were impressed with one of their fringe men on social media.

The Dons frustrated the home side for the first hour of the match, however, the Premier League side managed to overcome them with the help of one of their stars.

Harry Kane had opened the scoring in the 65th minute before he added his second and Spurs’ second of the game just three minutes later.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side wrapped up the clash with the League One outfit when Jan Vertonghen netted a powerful long-range effort past George Long in the Wimbledon goal.

The manager decided it would be the perfect opportunity to play a weakened side, giving chances to some of his fringe men, although he also kept a mixture of first-team regulars in the squad.

There were starts for Erik Lamela, Moussa Dembele, Victor Wanyama, Kyle Walker-Peters and Michel Vorm, however, it was one of the White Hart Lane’s summer recruits that made an impact with supporters.

Juan Foyth was also one of those to be given the chance to get vital minutes under his belt and impressed many of those watching on.

Supporters took to Twitter to comment on the young Argentine defender, stating that they were impressed with his performance and was one for the future.

Foyth joined Spurs from Estudiantes de La Plata from his hometown for a fee around £8million, which was met with some concern originally, however, he appears to have settled in quite quickly.

Here are some of the best reactions:
