How Heung Min Son was the trump card for Tottenham Hotspur in the win against Leicester City?

Heung Min Son celebrates after scoring a goal against Leicester City last night.

Youri Tielemans had given Leicester a short lead from the penalty spot and it was canceled off by Harry Kane’s equalizer immediately in the eighth minute which was followed by Eric Dier’s goal which came in the 21st minute. James Maddison scored a fantastic goal to bring the scores to level before half time Rodrigo Benatncur restored his team’s lead in the 47th minute with his first goal for the club.

Son Heung Min came off the bench and changed the whole perspective of the game making an immediate impact after scoring a stunner from outside the box in the 73rd minute. The second goal was even better as he shaped his body nicely to take the shot with his left foot curving the ball in the top corner and then went on to complete his hat-trick in the 86th minute.
