Photos: Michel Vorm snubs pitch invader

Tottenham beat Colchester 4-1 in the FA Cup - but one pitch invader didn't get his goal.

There were few surprises for Tottenham Hotspur as they beat Colchester United 4-1 on Saturday afternoon.

There was no huge upset as Mauricio Pochettino took the north London side into the fifth round, leaving them in a position where they are still in the top four and can still lift a trophy this season...

The biggest 'shock,' so to speak, was a pitch invader turning up at Colchester. And he duly asked Michel Vorm for an autograph but was snubbed by the Tottenham goalkeeper.

Last season, Vorm was the Spurs villain as his error let the White Hart Lane outfit down at the death.

Leicester City were the beneficiaries then but Tottenham have already dispatched them this time around. It's too soon to say they are one of the favourites for the FA Cup. If the cup was based on the Premier League table, though, they would be.

There's plenty of hope for Tottenham fans at present and Saturday's comprehensive win over Colchester with a slightly altered starting XI did little to dent that.
