Ryan Mason praises one Spurs star for ‘mental strength’ against Man United

Ryan Mason praised Heung-min Son’s mental strength after the South Korean dusted himself off from a big miss to score the equaliser for Spurs last night. 

Tottenham managed to come from two goals down to rescue a point against the Red Devils on home turf last night, putting in one of their best second-half displays in a long time.

Jadon Sancho put Man United ahead in the seventh minute with an all-too-easy cut-in off the left wing, finishing into the far corner past Fraser Forster.

Marcus Rashford then doubled Erik ten Hag’s lead just before half-time, smashing the ball into the Tottenham net after gliding past Eric Dier on the break.

However, it was a different Tottenham that came out for the second 45, with Ryan Mason clearly working wonders at half-time with his squad.

Pedro Porro got the Lilywhites back in the game with a sweet volley into the top corner, before consistent pressure finally paid off when Harry Kane put an equaliser on a plate for Heung-min Son.

When asked about Son looking frustrated after missing his first big chance, Mason said (Football London): “That’s down to mental strength.

“The top players they put things behind them and Sonny kept making the runs and believing the ball would come to him and he seemed very pleased with the goal in the second half.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

The result is the result, but it was nice to actually enjoy watching a Tottenham game for the first time in a long time. That second half had a lot of heart and a lot of quality about it. Hopefully, Mason and Co can give us something to cheer about over the next month.
