Son shines as Spurs ease into FA Cup semis

Spurs lost talisman Harry Kane to injury early on, but did not let it knock them out of their stride and made short work of the League One outfit, who were hoping to cause a shock.

The Lions were humiliated at White Hart Lane, losing 6-0 as they were dumped out of the FA Cup in an afternoon marred by violent clashes and racist chanting aimed hat-trick hero Heung-min Son. "Now we wait, assess and see what happened", Pochettino said.

"He [Kane] twisted his ankle - the same ankle as it was before", said Pochetino. It's sure it will be hard for him to play against Southampton on Sunday but we need to wait now and see what happens.

Spurs coped well in Kane's absence, with Son Heung-min scoring a hat-trick, while Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Vincent Janssen also struck.

It remains to be seen how severe Kane's injury is, with Spurs facing Southampton in the Premier League next Sunday, while England have a double header with Germany and Lithuania later this month. We wish him a speedy recovery.

He has played 30 Premier League, Champions League, Europa League, FA Cup and EFL Cup matches for his side this season.

"We are just hungry for goals and we knew it was going to be a hard game and didn't want them to get back into the game because they did have a threat". "[But] me personally, and the club, we won't condone that".

Millwall are still under investigation by the FA after Leicester complained about the behaviour of the club's fans following their victory in the previous round. Not only are we playing in an FA Cup quarter-final - the best club competition in the world - but we are also going to Tottenham Hotspur, who are a really talented side. We want people dealt with harshly. "It won't be excuse if we don't win or achieve our aims because Harry is not in the team".

Dominating possession easily, Pochettino's side battered Millwall from start to finish as they cruised to a 16th win from 18 home games this season. But it's important for the players who can play in his position like Son and Vincent find the net and score goals. "It's wrong in football and wrong in society". "Not only him (Janssen) but different players too will have the opportunity to play more and they need to be ready". "We have players enough to try and replace him", Pochettino said.
