Son Heung-min registered another assist in action for Tottenham yesterday.

The 27-year-old Korean star started in the league’s 7th round against Southampton. Until he was substituted out on 63 minutes, Son was involved in the team’s two goals.

In the 24th minute, Son’s cut-back was sent goalwards by Ndombele. It was his second assist this season and was the third consecutive match where he had been involved in the scoring as well.

Spurs, however, faced a difficult situation as right-back Serge Aurier was sent off. To make matters worse, Southampton evened the score.

Kane shined as a hero as he scored the winning goal before the first half ended.

Son then was replaced by Lamela on 64 minutes, and Spurs earned three precious points with one man down.
