Tottenham Hotspur proceeded to the FA Cup Semi Finals defeating League One Millwall 6 Nil but losing Harry Kane to Ankle injury and Heung-Min Son Scored a Hat-trick to crown the weekend  for Pochettino's Men.

The League one side had been on a 17 game unbeaten run which had seen them dump three Premier League sides out of the competition. Christian Erikson started the scoring in the 31st minute, Christian Eriksen, not Janssen, had replaced Kane and after half an hour he latched on to the ball from Alli’s chest-down to sweep a first-time shot low and beyond stand-in goalkeeper Tom King.

Heung-Min Son who had been sent racist chants early in the match, had been destined to beet imaginations today, breaking into the Millwall box and sending into the net a powerful curl well beyond King's grasp for the second goal and the first in his three goals.
Completely overwhelmed by the speed and drive of the Tottenham side, the Visitors had no penetrating power and hence, could not come up with any good opportunity but tried to cope toll the first half finished 2 Nil.
