Here’s Son’s goal, which came after a good effort by Lucas Moura was saved…

Intriguingly, this is the third time in a row now that Son has scored Tottenham’s first goal under a new manager, having also done so for Nuno, and for Jose Mourinho before him.
The South Korea international clearly loves a manager change!
