Son shocking miss gifts City win and sparks Arsenal fan frustration

Tottenham Hotspur suffered a hefty defeat against Manchester City at White Hart Lane yesterday, which will prove a massive pickle in the season that the North Londoners have enjoyed under Ange Postecoglou as it all came down to one Son Heung-min moment.

Spurs have seen massive progress at N17 since the Australian gaffer took charge of the club last summer; however, all the progress came down to having two clutch wins that could hand them an opportunity to qualify for the all-important UEFA Champions League. A loss against the Cityzens means Aston Villa seals their place in the top four and, in turn, qualifies them to be among the European elite.

While Spurs held on in the first half, a moment of duel madness from Romero handed the visitors an opportunity to earn the lead as Erling Haaland tapped in Vicario’s goal. However, all the hopes were not yet lost when the Lilywhites press caught City, and they were handed an opportunity to equalize when the Spurs skipper went one-vs-one with Cityzens backup goalkeeper Ortega. While the far post was all open, everything Son could do was hit it straight to a charging Ortega.

This caused massive damage to Tottenham as well as Arsenal supporters, as that could potentially damage the Gunners title hopes. While many Arsenal fans took to X to express their disappointment in the South Korean, one of them is Miami Heat player Josh Richardson, who is openly an Arsenal fan.

J. Rich went to X, formerly known as Twitter, to express dismay over Son’s miss.
