FA investigating alleged racist chanting at Tottenham-Millwall

Millwall have been really impressive in the League one this season and are sitting in sixth place at the moment and are looking for a promotion to the Championship next season.

On Saturday, when Arsene Wenger named a full-strength lineup to face Lincoln City, any hopes the fifth-tier side had of competing with Arsenal should have been extinguished.

City, who are third in the table, were unbeaten last month, winning all three of their Premier League games, scoring eight goals and conceding once, against West Ham United, Swansea City and Bournemouth.

Mounted police in riot gear struggled to keep order at times, with minor skirmishes also reported after the game.

Mauricio Pochettino, the Tottenham manager, said he feared the damage would prove to be similar to that Kane suffered against Sunderland last September.

But the first non-league side to reach the FA Cup quarterfinals for 103 years defied the odds again, making its more illustrious opponent toil for 45 minutes before Theo Walcott scored.

Harry Kane was injured early in Tottenham's FA Cup win against Millwall.

Steve Wilson: "Tottenham go into what will be the last ever FA Cup tie played at White Hart Lane in great spirits". Eastern Standard Time, 7 a.m.

Granted, he may not have the vision or hold-up play that Kane gives Tottenham, but his work-rate and eye for a goal makes him a more than able deputy.

"Honestly I didn't hear anything but myself and the club, we won't condone that if there is", Harris said. We have players enough to try and replace him.

"Enter Neil Harris and his Millwall team".

Millwall keeper Jordan Archer will seek revenge against his former club on Sunday. I saw the gulf between Spurs and Everton over ninety minutes.

Kane's injury though could wreak havoc with their ambitions in both this competition and the Premier League.

For Arsenal and Tottenham, the FA Cup represents their only realistic chance of finishing the season with silverware.

Pochettino also expressed confidence that the game would pass off without significant crowd trouble after Leicester lodged a complaint about the behaviour of the Lions fans following their 1-0 5th round defeat at the New Den.
