Son hat-trick helps Spurs join Man City at the top

An incredible display from substitute Son Heung-min helped Tottenham Hotspur come from behind to defeat struggling Leicester City, a result which moves them level on points with Manchester City at the top of the table.

Youri Tielemans had put the Foxes ahead on six minutes from the penalty spot but Spurs responded through headers from Harry Kane and Eric Dier.

James Maddison equalised just before the break only for Rodrigo Bentancur to put Spurs ahead again.

Son was introduced on the hour mark and claimed a 14-minute hat-trick, which included two fantastic goals to seal an impressive win as Premier League clubs, players, managers and fans continued to come together to give their respects to Her Majesty The Queen.

The South Korean is the first Spurs player to score a hat-trick in the Premier League as a substitute, and the first in the competition since Steven Naismith against Chelsea in September 2015.

His performance drew praise from former Spurs manager Tim Sherwood, who described Son as “a manager’s dream.”
