Tottenham won a third Premier League game with a late goal as Son Heung-min broke Newcastle hearts. The Magpies were holding on resolutely with a bit of luck as Spurs were unable to break past the opposition defence.
Tottenham came close several times before Fernando Llorente chested the ball onto Son’s path, and the South Korean thundered home the winner as the Newcastle keeper could not keep the ball from going past him.
This win was crucial for Spurs as we leapfrogged Manchester City before their game against Arsenal, and put the pressure on Liverpool. The Reds lie just four points ahead of us, though they have a game in hand.
This victory will mean a lot to Spurs, who haven’t been consistent in recent weeks. Our exit from the two cup competitions wasn’t great, but this win will provide us with a boost for the remainder of the season. Son has come back from a tiring Asian Cup tournament but hasn’t missed a beat. The South Korean scored in our 2-1 win over Watford a few days ago, and this was another top moment from one of the best players in the Premier League.
The attacker seems to be doing his best to keep our trophy hopes alive, and several fans praised the South Korean for his goal against the Magpies.
*slow rhythm* 🎶 you are my SONshiiiiiine, my only SONshiiiiine, you make Poch happyyyy, when skies are grayyyy, you’ll never know SON, how much we love you, please dont taaaake my SONshine awayyyyyyyy 🎶
