The Korean was 2-1 with a goal and an assist in the London derby, something that no Spurs player has accomplished since 2012.
In the 2-1 of Tottenham on Arsenal in the London derby, Heung Min Son was the name of triumph. The Korean scored the equalizer and enabled Toby Alderweireld for the second. He is the first Spurs player to score and assist against the Gunners since 2012, when Emmanuel Adebayor he did the same.
The Asian attacker took advantage of a bad pass from Sead Kolasinac to David Luiz to steal the ball and define above the goalkeeper with subtlety and mark what would be his first goal since the return of football, and the tenth in the current season of the Premier League .
And in the absence of ten minutes to comply with the regulation time, the 28-year-old winger executed the corner that Alderwereld converted into a goal with a header, for the triumph of Mourinho’s men.
1 + 1 – Son Heung-Min is the first Spurs player to score and assist in a Premier League game against Arsenal since February 2012, when Emmanuel Adebayor did so. Crucial. #TOTARS pic.twitter.com/qN7qtgZtUu
