Antonio Conte’s side had not been in good form going into the game, having dropped points against both Brighton and Brentford in their previous two outings.
Spurs had slipped behind Arsenal and desperately needed a victory as they battle for the fourth and final Champions League spot.
And they got just that as Son inspired them to a 3-1 victory at Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
Son’s brace and Harry Kane’s strike gave the home side all three points.
The South Korean’s second, scored in the 79th minute, was a thing of pure beauty.
The forward cut inside from the right and curled a delicious effort into the top corner with his weak foot from 25 yards. It was a thing of beauty and you can watch it below.

Son Heung Min 😍
Imagine striking a ball so beautifully with your weak foot. Pure brilliance from Son.
Pierre-Emile Højbjerg’s reaction said it all. He was standing right behind it and put his hands on his head as the ball nestled into the top corner.
Tottenham’s official Twitter account made reference to Højbjerg’s reaction as they posted an image of it alongside the caption: “Same, Pierre. Same.”
Their fierce rivals could go back above them, though, should they beat West Ham on Sunday evening.
