An injury to Harry Kane marred Tottenham Hotspur's party as they thrashed third-tier London rivals Millwall 6-0 to book their place in a loaded FA Cup semi-final line-up.

England international Kane, the Premier League's joint top scorer, had to hobble off after falling awkwardly and suffering an ankle injury in a sixth minute challenge during their sixth round tie.

Yet his absence was not missed on the day as Son Heung-min hammered a brilliant hat-trick and Kane's replacement Christian Eriksen also scored a beauty before Dele Alli and substitute Vincent Janssen got in on the act.

It all made for an emotional occasion as the Spurs marked their last FA Cup tie at their White Hart Lane home.

The Spurs will leave the storied 118-year-old ground at the end of the season.

The semi-final draw will be made tomorrow following the final quarter-final between Manchester United and Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
