Tottenham Hotspurs 6-1 Rochdale: Llorente’s hat trick, Son’s brace and Walker-Peters injury time goal aids Rochdale’s miserable defeat

Tottenham Hotspurs relentless scored goals in the second half in spite of superficial VAR decisions to frustrate the Londoners following cancellation of their some of their goals.

Son Heung-min gave the home side a lead that lasted for eight minutes before the visitors forward Stephen Humphrys cancelled the South Korean’s goal at the 31st minute.

If not for the intervention of VAR, Eric Lamela had given Tottenham a lead at the 8th minute and Mauricio Pochettino’s boys could have finished the first half leading but nevertheless the first 15 minutes of second half were so enough for Llorente to restore Spurs lead as he completed his hat-trick at the 47th, 53rd, and 59th minutes respectively.

The match continued in a snow filled Wembley

Son’s brace was complete at the 65th minute as substitute Kyle Walker Peters turned their lead to six at the 90+3 minutes.

The VAR also cancelled Son’s penalty due to the fact that it deemed the 24 years old forward stopped in a run up.

Fortunately whatever decisions made by the VAR didn’t affect the home side as game in ended in their favor with a great margin.

In the quarter finals, Tottenham Hotspurs will face Swansea City who beat Sheffield 2-0 during their fifth round replay.
