Jamie Redknapp names Tottenham ace in TOTW after Millwall demolition
By Will Butcher
Jamie Redknapp has named Tottenham hat-trick hero Son Heung-Min in his team of the week following Spurs’ 6-0 triumph against Millwall.
Son, 24, struck three goals during Spurs thrashing of League One outfit Millwall in the FA Cup quarter final, as Mauricio Pochettino’s side take their place in the last four of the competition.
Redknapp named Son in his best side from this weekend’s action on the Daily Express‘ website, along with Liverpool duo Simon Mignolet and James Milner, and Hull’s Oumar Niasse.
South Korea international Son grabbed Tottenham’s second with a curling effort from the corner of the penalty area that whistled into the top corner of Tom King’s net.
Son doubled his tally with a low volley after right-back Kieran Trippier played an exquisite ball over the top of the Millwall defence to meet the run of the former Bayer Leverkusen forward.

Tottenham’s number seven then completed his hat-trick to take home the match ball by volleying home a Christian Eriksen cross, which was fumbled into his own net by King.
Goals from Eriksen, Dele Alli and Vincent Janssen all contributed to Spurs’ progression into the semi finals, as they go into the hat with Arsenal, Man City and either Man United or Chelsea.
Son has been in fantastic form this season for the north London giants, scoring 14 times in his 35 league and cup appearances as well as providing seven assists.
