Son Heung-Min was the hat-trick hero as Tottenham made easy work of Millwall.

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:

Tottenham Player Ratings Vs Millwall

Michel Vorm – 7/10

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.

Eric Dier – 6/10

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.

Toby Alderweireld – 7.5/10

He was as usual; solid and dependable. Dealt with the little threat that came his way with nonchalance.

Jan Vertonghen – 7/10

A couple of shaky moments at the start, but asserted himself into the game. Read the game well and started attacks from the back.

Kieran Trippier – 7/10

A little nervy at the start, but grew into the game. His assist for Son’s second goal was sublime, to say the least.

Victor Wanyama – 7.5/10

Brought the defensive steel in the midfield for Tottenham. Battled hard in the middle of the park and bossed the area.

Harry Winks – 7.5/10

Another mature display in the midfield that belies his age. Extremely comfortable and confident. Keeps growing in stature with every game.

Ben Davies – 7/10

Ran up and down the left-flank, providing the width for Tottenham when needed. Has been on the rise in recent weeks.

Dele Alli – 8/10

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.

Heung-Min Son – 9/10

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.

Harry Kane – N/A

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.

Substitutes:

Christian Eriksen – 8.5/10

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.

Vincent Janssen – 7/10

Replaced Alli in the 74th minute. Scored his first goal from open play. Confidence booster for the struggling Dutchman.

Moussa Sissoko – 6/10

Came on for Victor Wanyama in the 78th minute. Did nothing of note.

“It feels like our second home” – Tottenham star unsure about staying at Wembley for the rest of the season

Christian Eriksen Tottenham

Christian Eriksen has claimed that Wembley is like a second home for Tottenham, and isn’t sure if we will stay at the stadium for the rest of the season.

Tottenham’s new ground won’t be ready this year and Daniel Levy confirmed we would be sticking to Wembley till 2019.

The club also moved to strike a deal to keep playing at Wembley till our home is completed, and Eriksen was quoted by the Sun saying:

“I don’t know if we are going to stay at Wembley for the rest of the season.

“We are happy at Wembley for more than a year now and it feels like our second home.”

The Dane added that the players couldn’t wait to play at the new ground but wanted the stadium to be perfect before the team move in.

The former Ajax star added that the professionals would be working hard to get the stadium done and the players have to concentrate on their job too.

Tottenham are fourth in the Premier League and are five points behind Manchester City, who lead the table.

Our next game is going to be a real battle as we face undefeated Chelsea. The Blues are just a point ahead of us in the Premier League, and a win will put us back in the race for the title.

Tottenham’s new stadium is inching closer to completion and we are receiving clips and pictures from various sources.

We saw Lord Alan Sugar tweet about the ground being one of the best in the world recently, and another Twitter user, AdamJ_COYS shared a number of clips of the stadium’s interior.

One of the most striking videos saw the Spurs fan capture the NFL home team and Tottenham dressing rooms.

The NFL changing rooms even have the league’s logo emblazoned on a number of areas, and we caught a glimpse of some other workers taking a snap too.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Tottenham stadium video unless we saw what the pitch looked like and the user even captured some of the seating areas which look close to completion.

The Spurs shop is one of the biggest attractions in the new ground and a video of the same was posted as well.

Tottenham’s stadium is set to be one of the best in the world but we will have to wait a little longer before any of the matches are played in the ground.

Tottenham new stadium

Tottenham will play their remaining home games of 2018 in Wembley but consturction of our new stadium seems to be chugging along. A new video showcases the exterior of the stadium, and it does seem close to completion.

There is some work to be done in the outer section of the ground, but the roof panels seem to be installed in all the right places.

The stadium was expected to be ready by September to host Liverpool, however, the club have faced delays and Daniel Levy recently claimed that we would be staying at Wembley till the end of the year.

Further, the club have negotiated a deal to play at Wembley till the new stadium is ready, and the club is expected to provide an update on the new ground in December.

The new home looks amazing, and it will be interesting to see which club we do face once the ground is ready.

White Hart Lane was a brilliant ground to play in, especially due to the vociferous backing of the Spurs faithful.
