Tottenham Hotspur advanced to the semi-finals of the FA Cup for the first time since 2012 with an emphatic 6-0 win over Millwall on Sunday afternoon.
Son Heung-Min grabs all the headlines for his brilliant hat-trick, while Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli also got on the score sheet, along with Vincent Janssen, who finally scored his first goal from open play for the North Londoners.
Their night was marred by an injury to star striker Harry Kane, who was taken off just ten minutes into the game. If the trio of Eriksen, Alli and Son continue at this level, Tottenham could very well be on their way to a silverware. Let’s see who was the stand-out player for Spurs on the day:
The backup shot-stopper did not have a lot to do on his rare start. Was alert when called into play and dealt with those situations comfortably.
Had a pretty comfortable outing, with Millwall rarely threatening on the attack. Slid the ball to Son on the right-hand side, which lead to the second goal.
He was as usual; solid and dependable. Dealt with the little threat that came his way with nonchalance.
A couple of shaky moments at the start, but asserted himself into the game. Read the game well and started attacks from the back.
A little nervy at the start, but grew into the game. His assist for Son’s second goal was sublime, to say the least.
Brought the defensive steel in the midfield for Tottenham. Battled hard in the middle of the park and bossed the area.
Another mature display in the midfield that belies his age. Extremely comfortable and confident. Keeps growing in stature with every game.
Ran up and down the left-flank, providing the width for Tottenham when needed. Has been on the rise in recent weeks.
Another classy display. Was always on the lookout to make things happen. Set up the opener for Eriksen with a chest down, before striking his 16th goal of the season.
Started off the game poorly, but proved his worth with three goals. His movement, work rate and finishing were all spot on. The hat-trick hero was on fire. Chipped in with an assist for Janssen as well.
Had a shot on goal five minutes into the game, but injured his ankle after falling awkwardly. Was taken off soon after to be replaced by Christian Eriksen.
Came on for the injured Kane and turned the game on its head. Opened the score from a well-hit half volley. Returned the favour to the Alli in the second half with a fine cross.
Replaced Alli in the 74th minute. Scored his first goal from open play. Confidence booster for the struggling Dutchman.
Came on for Victor Wanyama in the 78th minute. Did nothing of note.
