The Premier League title is now beyond them, but Tottenham Hotspur are not feeling sorry for themselves. Instead, they are breaking records.
Mauricio Pochettino’s boys lead his former club Southampton 1-0 at White Hart Lane this afternoon thanks to this cheeky goal from Son Heung-Min.
The South Korean looked at one point as though he was going to walk the ball into the net as he danced around three Saints, before slotting home from a few yards out.
He was given a helping hand by some hapless Southampton defending, but that is a reward for Son’s persistence in chasing what appeared to be a lost cause.
This is the 23-year-old’s second goal in a week after bagging in Monday’s 2-2 draw with Chelsea, when Spurs surrendered the championship to newly-crowned Leicester City.
It is Son’s fourth Premier League goal of the campaign and Tottenham’s 68th in total – a club record – and a reminder that they have nevertheless had a brilliant season.
Neither Harry Kane nor Dele Alli won Tottenham supporters’ club player of the season…
