Son Heung-min (30) broke a long silence in 110 days and tasted the goal. He even threw off the mask he had worn after an orbital fracture, venting his frustration. Tottenham fans also cheered for Son Heung-min’s resurrection, and showed a witty reaction.
Son Heung-min joined Tottenham from Leverkusen in the German Bundesliga in 2015. In his debut season, his rotational resource was red lighted for starting competition, but his presence has since risen to the top of the Premier League.

Since Tottenham made extensive reinforcements close to all positions this summer, expectations were high for Tottenham’s team performance and Son Heung-min.

In the second half against Leicester City, where he sat on the bench, he exploded a hat-trick, but the scoring stopped in the Premier League afterwards. Due to an orbital fracture injury in the Champions League and the World Cup, he was unable to show 100% of his performance.
