Tottenham Hotspur left it late again this afternoon, with Heung Min Son slamming home the winner after 83 minutes in a 1-0 affair against Newcastle at Wembley.
This marked the third match in a row that Spurs have scored a late winner, although at least they weren’t forced to come from behind today.
Son drifted in and out of the game through the 88 minutes that he managed, but overall he left his mark on the pitch.
Always showing for the ball, and constantly trying to shift it onto either foot for a strike at goal, Son’s positivity and attacking flair was ultimately the difference today.
In my opinion, he looks far more dangerous as the second striker playing off Fernando Llorente’s knockdowns, the source of both his goals since returning from the Asia Cup.
But, despite scoring the winner, what I love most about Son is his adoration for the badge on that Lilywhite shirt.
You can tell he plays for the club, his teammates, and his fans, rather than his own personal glory. Also, watching him with his hands clasped in prayer on the bench after being subbed off shows that he lives every second.
There is true belief in him that Tottenham can win titles, and Spurs need more of that through the team.
A hectic winter schedule, three games at the Asia Cup, and he still manages to return, play two full games, and score two goals.
Nice one Sonny!
