Son Heung-min scored a late goal to move Spurs to second in the Premier League

Tottenham 1-0 Newcastle

Son Heung-min’s late goal gave Tottenham a victory over resilient Newcastle as they moved into second in the Premier League table denying Newcastle a point at Wembley Stadium.

The South Korean shot from 20-yard and  benefited from a Martin Dubravka error with seven minutes left, the ball went under the Newcastle goalkeeper’s body.

Newcastle had a well drilled defense throughout the match, with Fabian Schar’s acrobatic goalline clearance to deny Christian Eriksen in the second half.

The visitors had their own chances, with Salomon Rondon heading against the post with the score at 0-0 but their resistance was broken when substitute Fernando Llorente headed down for Son to score a ninth goal in his past 10th Spurs appearances.

According to BBC Sports “The win means Mauricio Pochettino’s side set a Premier League record as they reached 29 matches in a row without a draw, eclipsing Bolton’s mark of 28 set in 2011.”
