London - Nacer Chadli crowned his 100th Tottenham Hotspur appearance with a brace as his side won 4-1 at third-tier strugglers Colchester United in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday.

The Belgian winger netted with a thumping drive in the 27th minute and a 78th-minute glancing header at the Colchester Community Stadium, either side of a deflected long-range shot from Eric Dier.

Colchester, rock bottom of League One, replied in the 80th minute when Ben Davies put through his own goal after Gavin Massey had hit the post, but Chadli immediately teed up Tom Carroll to restore Spurs' three-goal cushion.

"I think that this competition is magic. The opponents always believe that maybe it's their day, that they can win," Spurs manger Mauricio Pochettino told BT Sport.

"At times we invited them a little bit to believe in the possibility, but I think it was always under control. We conceded some chances, but it was a fair result."
