Heung-min Son scored a goal of the season contender in Tottenham’s comfortable 3-1 win against Chelsea but isn’t resting on his laurels.

The South Korean star had at least four decent chances to score before he finally took his chance in the second half.

In reality, Spurs could have had the game wrapped up within the opening thirty minutes at Wembley if Son had shown more composure in front of goal.

On 54 minutes, his persistence paid off with a stunning solo effort.  Dele Alli played the ball to Son who collected it near the halfway line and left Jorginho in his tracks, after cutting inside he also easily brushed off a challenge from David Luiz and dribbled into the box and slid the ball past Kepa Arrizabalaga. 

Son remained as level headed as usual after the match by revealing that he will learn from the opportunities that he squandered.

He also thanked his fellow players and Spurs fans for their support after suffering somewhat of a barren spell in front of goal recently.

He told BBC MOTD: “It’s amazing. Our performance was very good and we deserved to win. It’s an unbelievable night.

“We said it before – the first five minutes are so important. We played direct and scored an early goal.

“Afterwards we created a lot of chances. I need to be more clinical. I’m happy to get three points but I have to learn from this game. I was very sad when I didn’t score.

“I love the fans, I love these team-mates and I enjoy every single moment. I went away a long time and I came back and didn’t play very well. I felt very sorry but they supported me and I played good because of them and I’m very grateful for that.”
