Kane's season could be over after ankle injury

Kane's season could be over after ankle injury

Millwall could be in more trouble with the Football Association after their fans targeted Tottenham Hotspur forward Heung-min Son with racist chants during Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final.

Millwall could meanwhile face an FA investigation after their fans were heard chanting racist abuse at Tottenham's South Korean striker Heung-Min Son, who scored a hat-trick to obliterate the League 1 side's hopes.

Tottenham opened the scoring on 31 minutes when Kane's replacement Eriksen angled a first-time effort into the far corner, before Son curled home a sublime second as half time approached.

The Lions' task appeared to be made easier when ex-Millwall striker Harry Kane hobbled off after 10 minutes with an ankle injury when the 23-year-old's shot was parried well by Tom King.

"We can not cry, we have to try to be positive", Pochettino said.

Granted, he may not have the vision or hold-up play that Kane gives Tottenham, but his work-rate and eye for a goal makes him a more than able deputy. But it's important for the players who can play in his position like Son and Vincent find the net and score goals.

"Son can play like a striker", Pochettino said. We have different opportunities to play, use different formations.

"We know he's had some hard months although, of course, he's scored some penalties, but to [see him] score in open play today was a good feeling".

There was just time for Son to complete his hat-trick in added time as his close-range volley went straight through King and Alli was buoyed by the way the hosts responded to the injury to Kane.

Whenever South Korean worldwide Son touched the ball in the first half there were loud chants of "DVDs, DVDs" from the 3,600-strong away end at White Hart Lane.

Post-match reaction to Tottenham's 6-0 victory over Millwall. 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.

"Of course it's a shame, for both of us - Mauricio wants to be talking about his team's quality. It's wrong in society and it's wrong in football".

Herman Ouseley, the Millwall-supporting chairman of anti-racism group Kick It Out, was unaware of the offensive interpretation of the "DVD"-related chants".

And another prolific goal-scorer, Wright, is backing Tottenham to edge past Millwall in what should be an entertaining London derby at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.

He left the ground on crutches and wearing a protective boot.
