Tottenham responded perfectly to Harry Kane’s early injury against Millwall.

The England striker was forced off with an ankle problem just a few minutes into the FA Cup quarter-final, but Spurs went into the break 2-0 up after goals from Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-Min.

But the South Korea forward knew he had to get things right, or else risk the wrath of teammate Dele Alli.

Alli was quick to celebrate with Spurs’ number seven, but just a few seconds earlier he seemed furious with Son for a poor piece of control.

That looked to have killed the move, hence Alli’s anger but Son had other ideas.

We noticed. The BBC’s commentary team noticed. Even a bunch of you on Twitter noticed.
