That's all for tonight, goodbye!
So, Palace progress into the next round of the competition and end their run of defeats, something Hodgson will be hoping can give his team some momentum as they try to put more space between themselves and the relegation zone in the Premier League. Spurs have now exited two Cup competitions in the space of a week and will want to get back to winning ways when they face Watford on Wednesday. 
Palace's first-half goals from Wickham and Townsend separate the two sides at full-time. The home side were clinical in the first half and were the deserved leaders when they went in at the break. Trippier did have the chance to pull one back from the penalty spot, but sent his effort wide of the post. Spurs did improve in the second half, but they just couldn't find a way past Speroni to get on the scoresheet.
W. Zaha
Yellow Card
90' + 3' Zaha is shown the yellow card for a foul on Lamela.
C. Benteke
Yellow Card
90' + 2' Benteke is the first Palace player to be shown a yellow card after pulling back Wanyama.
90' Trippier put a cross into the box from the right wing and Schlupp rose to block it. He headed the ball and it looked like it hit his arm, which was tight to his body. No penalty is awarded though and play carries on.
J. Ayew
A. Townsend
88' Last change for Palace as Ayew comes on to replace Townsend.
86' Van Aanholt is down for Palace now and is receiving treatment for what looks like a muscle strain. He's back on his feet fairly quickly and he's able to carry on. 
84' Zaha cuts back onto his right on the edge of the box to get past Foyth and he hits his shot low, trying to sneak it into at the near post, but Gazzaniga gets down quickly to catch it. 
83' Townsend finds himself in some space on the right wing and whips a cross into the centre of the box, but there are no Palace players there to get on the end of it and Spurs are able to clear. 
K. Sterling
Lucas Moura
81' Final change for Spurs now as Sterling comes on in place of Lucas. 
80' Milivojevic is down in the box now after being hit in the face by Sanchez in an aerial challenge. He's holding his jaw as he gets back to his feet, and he's okay to carry on.
L. Milivojević
M. Meyer
79' Hodgson makes his second change now as Meyer comes off to be replaced by Milivojevic. 
77' When Spurs get into the final third, they take a long time to get the ball into the penalty area and by the time they do get into the box, Palace have got back into their shape and are able to clear the danger. 
75' Palace got into a good position thanks to Zaha's movement on the left wing. He tried to play a one-two with Meyer to get behind his defender, but the German's pass was too heavy and Zaha couldn't keep it in play.
73' Pochettino still doesn't look too happy with his team on the touchline. His side have been a lot better since coming out for the second half, but they have wasted their chances so far.
71' Lucas got away from his marker on a corner and found himself with a free header when he got on the end of the cross. He couldn't aim his shot on target though and it was wide of the near post.
C. Benteke
C. Wickham
70' First change for Palace now as goal scorer Wickham goes off to be replaced by Benteke. 
68' Palace have struggled to get out of their own half since the break, and the Spurs midfielders have done a good job of intercepting their passes when they move the ball into midfield. 
66' Trippier ran onto the ball on the right side of the box and crossed it back in with his first touch. Llorente came close to getting on the end of it at the far post, but it was just out of his reach and went out for a goal kick. 
65' Zaha is trying his best to get into dangerous positions and cause Spurs problems when he does get onto the ball, but he doesn't have any support from Wickham or Townsend so his cross into the box is cleared easily. 
V. Wanyama
E. Dier
63' Like-for-like change for Spurs now as Wanyama comes on to replace Dier. 
62' Llorente has another chance from close range that Speroni saves. The forward kept the ball close to his body in the crowded box, but his attempt was weak and hit straight at the keeper, who pushed it away. 
60' Van Aanholt takes the free-kick awarded after Foyth's foul, but it hits the wall. When it bounces back to him, he takes the shot on the volley, but it sailed high over the crossbar and didn't cause Gazzaniga any problems. 
J. Foyth
Yellow Card
59' Foyth is shown the yellow card for a pull back on Schlupp.
58' Lamela takes the free-kick and tries to curl it around the edge of the wall, but instead his shot rebounds off van Aanholt. Spurs did keep possession and had another chance through Nkoudou, but it was well wide of the far post.
57' Spurs have a free-kick right on the edge of the box and the players are sure that they should have had a penalty, but their protests don't change his decision.
D. Sánchez
Yellow Card
55' Sanchez is the first player to go in the referee's book after a foul on Townsend.
54' Townsend made a great run down the left wing from his own half to get level with the box after making space between him and Dier. He squared the ball into the middle of the box, but no Palace players were there to get on the end of it and Foyth was able to clear it. 
52' Llorente received the ball in the box and kept it with great control to turn and get his shot away to the far corner and Speroni makes an excellent finger-tip save to turn it out for a corner.
50' Ward makes a birilliant defensive header to stop Lucas from getting on the end of Trippier's cross in the centre of the six-yard cross.
48' Spurs are moving the ball with a bit more purpose at the start of the half and Dier plays a looping ball over the top of the Palace back line to find Trippier, but the defender is offside.
46' Palace get us back underway for the second half.
E. Lamela
J. Vertonghen
46' It looks like there'll be a change in shape for Spurs as Lamela comes on to replace Vertonghen at the start of the second half.
Pochettino will need to make changes at the break if he wants to turn this tie in his team's favour. Spurs struggled to break down Palace for the majority of the first half and lacked imagination when they did get the ball into a dangerous position. Hodgson, on the other hand, will be hoping for more of the same from his side; they've stuck to their game plan well and have been the more clinical in front of goal.
Palace have a deserved 2-0 lead at the break due to a penalty from Townsend and Wickham's first goal since November 2016 after a long lay-off with a knee injury. Spurs did enjoy some late pressure at the end of the half, and could have pulled one back after they were awarded a penalty, but Trippier's miss means they remain off the scoresheet.
45' + 1' Pochettino looks angry sat on the bench after the penalty miss, and he won't be happy with his side's performance during the first half. 
K. Trippier
Penalty Miss
44' TRIPPIER MISSES THE PENALTY! He had to place the ball on the spot a couple of times due to the wind, but when he steps up to actually take it, he whips the ball well wide of the left post. 
43' PENALTY FOR SPURS! Van Aanholt tries to clear the ball through Foyth's legs, but he ends up kicking the defender who goes to ground and the referee points to the spot, despite the protests from the Palace players. 
41' Trippier passes the ball to Nkoudou who is to the left of the wall in the box and he takes a touch before taking a shot and Speroni makes a brilliant double save from close-range to deny him.
40' Spurs have a free-kick on the edge of the Palace box, but it's being delayed due to Ward refusing to leave the wall for a cut on his nose. The medical team are there to give him treatment, meaning he has to go off, much to the frustration of the home side. 
38' Spurs look like they don't have any ideas on how they can get into the Palace box to create a chance for themselves. They are trying to get the ball out to the wide players, but the crosses in so far have been poor. 
36' Townsend almost makes it three! Spurs look very shaky at the back now and van Aanholt has a lot of space to put a cross into the box. He found Townsend in the centre, who hit the shot first time, but it was straight at the keeper and he parried it away. 
A. Townsend
Penalty Goal
34' TOWNSEND SCORES THE PENALTY! It was a confident strike and he drove the ball down the centre and over Gazzaniga to find the back of the net and double Palace's lead. 2-0 to the Eagles!
33' PENALTY FOR PALACE! Walker-Peters jumped up to clear the cross coming into the box and raised his arm which made contact. The referee had no doubts about the decision and pointed straight to the spot.
31' Palace have managed to get some possession back now, and they are trying to move forward with a lot of pace, but they have not got past the Spurs defence again just yet. 
29' Spurs take a free-kick quickly to try and catch Palace out. Lucas slips the ball through to Nkoudou on the edge of the box, and this time he tried to play a quick pass forward, but once again Palace were able to clear the danger.
27' Spurs take a free-kick on the left wing and choose to cut the ball back to Nkoudou on the edge of the box. He took a touch to create more space for himself, but waited too long to get his shot away which allowed Wickham to get back and dispossess him. 
25' Palace look the more comfortable of the two sides so far. They're happy to sit back while Spurs mount their attacks and wait for their chance to move upfield. 
23' Spurs are happy to play passes in their own half for now as they stay patient and try to find a way through the Palace midfield. 
21' Trippier puts a low cross into the box this time from the right wing, but he can't beat the first man and Dann is able to clear the ball. 
19' Some neat play by Palace allows them to get behind the Spurs defence and van Aanholt receives the ball on the edge of the box. His shot is swerves on its way towards goal and Gazzaniga gets across his line to block the shot and hold onto it.
18' Lucas decides to have a go from the edge of the box. His shot is powerful and Speroni scrambles across his line to throw his arm up to make the save, but the effort is high and sails over the crossbar. 
17' Lucas tried to play in Llorente on the edge of the box, but the Dann clears it away. He can only find Walker-Peters though and his ball into the box isn't a good one, leaving Kelly with an easy clearance. 
15' The Spurs defence are struggling to find any passes up to the forward players due to the shape that Palace are playing in and there isn't a lot of space in midfield. 
13' That is the first goal that Wickham has scored since netting against Manchester City 799 days ago.
11' Spurs are trying to mount a quick attack after falling behind, but Lucas takes too long to pass the ball forward and he is dispossessed as the attack comes to an end.
C. Wickham
9' PALACE ARE AHEAD AGAINST THE RUN OF PLAY! Schlupp had the initial shot from a tight angle on the right side of the six-yard box and Gazzaniga gets a hand to it, but he touches it in the direction of Wickham and he was in the right place at the right time to turn the ball into the empty net. 1-0 Palace! 
8' Van Aanholt is showing his frustration with the referee as he feels like Skipp caught him with a high boot, but the referee just has a talk with the midfielder and play carries on.
6' Every time Spurs have got forward since the start of the game, they have tried to get the ball out to Walker-Peters so that he can get a cross into the box from the left wing, but so far he hasn't been able to find any of his team-mates. 
4' Despite all of their early possession, Spurs haven't been able to get the ball into the box yet to cause Palace any real problems.
2' Palace have barely had a touch of the ball in the game so far, apart from a clearance in the box, it's been all Spurs. 
1' Spurs get the game underway at Selhurst Park.
The teams are out on the pitch now, with kick-off just minutes away. 
The last six matches between these two sides in all competitions have ended 1-0 (five Spurs wins, one Palace win).
Mauricio Pochettino also makes a lot of changes to the Spurs team as he brings in eight players that didn't start their game against Chelsea. Only Gazzaniga, Vertonghen and Llorente, who scored in that game, retain their places.
Roy Hodgson makes six changes to the team that lost to Liverpool last weekend as Ward, Kelly, Dann, Meyer, Schlupp and Wickham come into the side. Sakho, Tomkins, Ayew, Milivojevic, McArthur and Wan-Bissaka all drop out.

Since beating Grimsby 1-0 in the last round of the competition, Palace have lost both of their matches to Watford and Liverpool. Spurs have played double that amount of games since their cruising to the fourth round with a 7-0 win over Tranmere, but have lost two of those games (W2), and were knocked out of the EFL Cup on Thursday after losing a penalty shoot-out to Chelsea.
Hello and welcome to live coverage of the FA Cup fourth round match between Crystal Palace and Tottenham at Selhurst Park.
