Following the excitement and in some cases, the tedium of last nights action, there were five more games on Sunday in the FA Cup, that included some giant killing action.

Oxford United 3-2 Swansea City

Where else to begin but for Oxford United's heroics against Swansea at the Kassam Stadium, where Kemar Roofe (insert raise the roof pun here) bagged a double to send Oxford fans into raptures as they progressed to the fourth round of the Cup. 

Situated 54 places below their Premier League opposition, Oxford fell behind early on thanks to a sublime Jefferson Montero finish but Liam Sercombe levelled on the stroke of half time from the spot after Kyle Bartley felled Alex MacDonald in the box. 

Roofe then put Oxford in front with a curling effort from outside the box before grabbing the third from a breakaway attack. 

Bafetimbi Gomis pulled one back late on to give Swansea a fighting chance but they couldn't find the all important equaliser. 

Tottenham Hotspur 2-2 Leicester City

Harry Kane's well struck late penalty means Spurs live to fight another day as they came from behind at White Hart Lane to salvage a draw. 

Nathan Dyer handed Kane the opportunity when referee Bobby Madley harshly adjudged the winger to have used his arm to control the ball inside the box. 

Marcin Wasilewski and Shinji Okazaki goals either side of the break had the Foxes on course for another win after Christian Eriksen put Spurs in front after eight minutes. 

But Kane's penalty means they'll have to do it again at the KP Stadium next week.

Chelsea 2-0 Scunthorpe

It was routine stuff for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge earlier, as they dispatched Scunthorpe to progress into the next round of the FA Cup. 

The hosts took an early lead when Diego Costa directed Branislav Ivanovic's toward goal but they had to bide their time forthe second, as the Iron goalkeeper Luke Daniels was in excellent form.

Eventually the pressure told, as Ruben Loftus-Cheek drilled Azpilicueta's cross into the bottom corner.
