Sub Son Heung-min comes on and hits hat-trick as Tottenham thrash Leicester



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

Son Heung-min responded to his abandonment by coming on and ending his goal drought in style with a sensational hat-trick in Tottenham’s 6-2 hammering of desolate Leicester.

Spurs boss Antonio Conte left the South Korean on the bench after an eight-match run without finding the net, but called on his striker in the 65th minute and he responded with a remarkable hat-trick.

Tottenham were already leading 3-2 at this stage after efforts from Harry Kane, Eric Dier and Rodrigo Bentancur canceled out goals from Youri Tielemans and James Maddison for the visitors.

It was a second heavy defeat in a row for under-fire Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers to ensure they remain bottom of the Premier League and winless.
