Tottenham's Son Heung-Min can cover in Harry Kane's absence

Tottenham's Son Heung-Min can cover in Harry Kane's absence

A Son Heung-min hattrick enabled Tottenham Hotspur to thrash lower-league Millwall 6-0 in their FA Cup quarterfinal clash on Sunday at White Hart Lane, hereby confirming that all four semifinalists will be from English football's top-flight, the English Premier League.

The South Korea star's goal blitz was the flawless response to a section of the Millwall support who aimed unsavoury chants at him in the first half.

The reference to selling DVDs is considered to be a racist slur against Asians who sell black market films in London.

He left the stadium on crutches and Pochettino fears it is a similar injury to the one that kept the 23-year-old out for seven weeks earlier this term.

Eric Dier, speaking at the same time out in the auto park, said exactly the same thing: that Vincent Janssen has improved beyond recognition in the last few weeks. We're all very disappointed about Harry's injury, hopefully he gets back as quickly as possible because he is very important for us.

Vincent Janssen replaced Alli with 15 minutes to play and was able to get his name on the scoresheet- the Dutchman turning home a Ben Davies cross.

"Son can play like a striker".

Twitter users, including former Tottenham chairman Alan Sugar, posted their reactions to Kane's injury.

He added: "He twisted his ankle, it is the same ankle that he injured before in the game against Sunderland". It's hard. It looks a similar situation to Sunderland. We're the best team in the country right now and I don't care whether Harry Kane plays or not. It will be hard for him to play against Southampton on Sunday, but we need to wait now. "We need to assess some more and after Monday we will see".

Tottenham return to Premier League action next Sunday, when Southampton visit White Hart Lane.

Millwall manager Neil Harris said racist chanting would represent a blot on his side's excellent run in the competition. "They had a very direct game but they had clarity about what they wanted to do and they did that very well", Wenger said.

"Obviously, I'm disappointed with the final score, but I thought Spurs were outstanding today".

"I didn't hear anything", he said.
