Harry Kane's hat-trick sends Tottenham into FA quarter-finals

Harry Kane's hat-trick sends Tottenham into FA quarter-finals

England striker Kane struck early on and twice after the interval to take his tally for the season to 19 as the eight-times FA Cup winners eased into the quarter-finals where they will face third-tier east London side Millwall.

"I'm used to ankle recoveries now and I worked very hard with the medical staff".

"We have improved a lot since our last final [again against Chelsea in the 2015 League Cup final] and we're a lot stronger now". "After two defeats, in football, that feeling when you lose is so hard", he said. We could very easily see an inspired and hungry Spurs performance in this match, so Fulham cannot afford to look at the situation and get over-confident - and that means this promises to be an interesting and entertaining match no matter what happens. He arrived in very good condition to play today.

"We took to the game with the right attitude, were very focused and tried to show our quality and fight", he said.

"I can only speak for myself but I like to play as many games as possible and maybe the other guys do as well". Many players wanted to play and didn't feel exhausted. "(And) to change and prepare for the Europa League". "We understand the way (Pochettino) wants us to play".

The win at Fulham will undoubtedly be a boost to Spurs, who return to Wembley on Thursday for their 2nd leg tie against Gent.

Senate to confirm Trump budget chief

"We had some meetings at the training ground to try to find why and try to recover the feeling. They put us under their control for 85% of the game, so the result is fair".

"We need to feel we must win and go to the next round, and now we're not allowed to speak about the FA Cup".

And Vertonghen has backed Mauricio Pochettino's policy of not giving too many players a rest despite the risk of fatigue setting in.

After a flurry of early chances, the hosts started to come into the game more and they were nearly presented with an equaliser when Michel Vorm passed the ball straight to Tom Cairney, but the midfielder's shot - in front of an open goal - was kept out by the recovering keeper.

"They played as if they were playing against Chelsea and, in the end, all credit to them for that. I am going to fight for some kind of prestige in this game". They didn't offer us so many chances to gain a victory.
