Heung-Min Son scored a hat-trick as we brushed aside Millwall with a dominant display in the FA Cup quarter-final at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.
Our South Korean striker made it six goals in four FA Cup ties this season, while there were also goals for Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Vincent Janssen as we booked our place in the Wembley semi-finals in a game which saw us enjoy 76 per cent possession and 15 shots on target.
The downside to the afternoon was the early departure through injury of Harry Kane, who was replaced in the 10th minute by Eriksen after appearing to hurt his ankle when firing in a shot under pressure from Millwall’s Jake Cooper.
It was his replacement who got the ball rolling though, the Dane sweeping home on 31 minutes before Son added his first 10 minutes later with a wonderful curling effort. Nine minutes after the interval, Son doubled his tally with a neat finish from Kieran Trippier’s pass, before two further goals in seven minutes.
First, Dele tapped home from close range after an excellent move on 72 minutes and Janssen added his name to the scoresheet as he fired in from Son’s ball - a strike that proved particularly popular among the White Hart Lane faithful as it was the Dutch international's long-awaited first from open play in our colours.
And the star of the show rounded off the scoring with his hat-trick goal in stoppage time, Son connecting with a left-footed volley from Eriksen’s clipped cross which squirmed through the legs of Millwall goalkeeper Tom King.
We join Arsenal, Manchester City and either Chelsea or Manchester United in the last four, with the draw taking place at the conclusion of Monday night’s match between the latter two sides.
