Tottenham Hotspur were in full control of their Premier League match against Bournemouth today, with Dele Alli and Lucas Moura both going close to opening the scoring in the first half.
It looked to be a matter of time for the Lilywhites in terms of their breakthrough, with a win needed to secure a top-four spot this season.
However, just before halftime, the game flipped completely, as Spurs were reduced to ten men in a flash of anger.
Heung Min Son was given his marching orders in an uncharacteristic loss of temper, as the South Korean lashed out at Bournemouth’s Lerma.
At first glance, it was hard to see what had riled Son up so much, but fans now believe they have spotted exactly what made him act the way he did.
If you look at the replays, not only can you see Lerma plant one on Son minutes before the red card, but you can also see him punch Sonny in the back just before the Spurs man lost his head.

NO.8 Lerma (BOU) –> Heung-min Son (TOT)
The referee didn’t give Lerma a yellow card.
It seems to have triggered Son’s anger.
