Tottentham Hotspur have started their season in fine fashion by beating Manchester City 1-0 at home turf. But this time around, Spurs did it without a certain captain who is hoping to join City in a $150m deal.
Spurs might have labelled in the past a ‘one man team’ but, Son Heung Min along with his teammates proved that label was wrong and disrespectful.
The South Korean scored a absolute stunner after been picked out by the excellent running of Steven Bergwijn from deep. Son evaded the tackle of Nathan Ake before smashing the ball beyond the outstretched hands of Ederson.
Nuno Espirito Santo could be visibly seen jumping in excitement while Pep Guardiola stood motionless, thinking of another brilliant excuse to give for a second successive defeat.
City did push forward to equalize but were wastefulness in front of goal which further highlights the need to sign a world class striker.
