Dele Alli: Harry Kane injury is horrible for Tottenham, but we can cope

Dele Alli insists Tottenham’s 6-0 win against Millwall shows the club can cope in the absence of top goalscorer Harry Kane.

Kane limped off just 10 minutes into the match with an ankle injury but the hosts were not unsettled as substitute Christian Eriksen, a Son Heung-min hat-trick and further strikes from Alli and Vincent Janssen guided Spurs into the last four of the FA Cup.

Alli told BBC One: “It is always horrible to lose a player like Harry, he’s been in top form, but I think that shows our depth in quality and everyone stepped up a gear.

“It was an important win for us, not just for the cup but for the league as well, it was important that we kept the form and get in the goals.

“We are just hungry for goals and we knew it was going to be a difficult game and didn’t want them to get back into the game because they did have a threat.

“But like I say, everyone wants to score and I think this is a good thing for this club.”
