Tanguy Ndombele scored twice as Tottenham needed three goals in the final five minutes to finally see off a spirited Wycombe 4-1 in the FA Cup fourth round.
Ndombele was one of four big hitters called off the bench at Adams Park as Spurs struggled to get the job done against the Championship strugglers playing their first game since a coronavirus outbreak.
A shock was on the cards in the first half when Fred Onyedinma put the Chairboys ahead, but Gareth Bale, playing his first 90 minutes of the season, levelled before the break.
It was one-way traffic after the break, but even Harry Kane and Son Heung-min could not make the breakthrough as Spurs' frustration mounted.
With extra-time on the cards, Harry Winks broke Wycombe hearts with an 86th-minute curler before two Ndombele goals at the death gave Spurs a deserved win.
It means Jose Mourinho's men, who play Liverpool in the Premier League on Thursday, are still challenging on all four fronts this season and they now head to Everton in the fifth round.
For Wycombe, who ran out of steam in the second half, they can be proud of their efforts but will now focus staying in the second tier.
