I’m glad the ball finally went in – Son Heung-min ends goal drought in style



Tottenham Hotspur v Leicester City – Premier League – Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

A frustrated Son Heung-min was happy to respond to his retirement with a sensational hat-trick to help Tottenham beat Leicester 6-2.

Last season’s co-top scorer in the Premier League had started the campaign without a goal in his first eight appearances in all competitions and it saw him named as a substitute for the struggling Foxes’ visit.

After watching Harry Kane, Eric Dier and Rodrigo Bentancur net for the first 47 minutes, Son was lucky enough to get in on the act and responded with two stunning strikes before finishing his hat trick late when VAR ruled that he was part of it.

“It was a top performance and I was also very frustrated,” he told Sky Sports.
