Son Heung-min scored a hat-trick as Tottenham Hotspur reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup with an easy win over League One Millwall but lost striker Harry Kane with an ankle injury.

England striker Kane was replaced after being hurt when Lions defender Jake Cooper tried to block his shot after seven minutes.

Christian Eriksen, Kane’s replacement, opened the scoring with a finish into the bottom corner after Dele Alli’s chest down before Son scored either side of half-time.

Alli tapped home the fourth with substitute Vincent Janssen adding the fifth – his first from open play for Spurs – before Son completed his hat-trick with virtually the last kick of the game after a mistake by keeper Tom King.

Spurs join Premier League rivals Manchester City and Arsenal in the semi-final draw, which takes place at Stamford Bridge on Monday after the final quarter-final between Chelsea and holders Manchester United.

Spurs win comes at a high price

Spurs will be hoping for a change of fortune after losing their last six FA Cup semi-finals as they look to win a major trophy for the first time since 2008.

They will also have to overcome their poor record at Wembley, scene of this season’s failed Champions League campaign.

Whether Kane will be back in time for the semi-final on the weekend of 22-23 April remains to be seen but the sight of his leading scorer disappearing down the tunnel in pain is a huge blow for boss Mauricio Pochettino.

There was no blame attached to Cooper as both players challenged for the ball inside the Millwall penalty area with the game goalless.

Pochettino opted for Eriksen instead of Janssen – the only striker on the bench – and the Dane broke Millwall’s resolve with a first-time strike into the far corner after 31 minutes.

Son added the second shortly before the interval, the South Korea international cutting in from the right to score soon after Victor Wanyama had headed against the bar.

Kieran Trippier’s excellent pass was volleyed home by Son to make it 3-0 before Alli tapped home after Eriksen’s pass.

One of the biggest cheers of the game greeted Janssen’s goal, a first-time shot inside the area after another assist by Son, before the latter completed his hat-trick after a terrible fumble by King.
