Son Heung-min almost fought with teammate Hugo Lloris, in the match Tottenham won Everton 1-0 in round 33 Premier League on July 6th. The only goal was made by Michael Keane at the 24th minute of the match.
When the first half ended, captain Hugo Lloris came to push Son Heung-min right on the field. The Korean striker turned around, trying to scramble with his teammates, but the Tottenham players promptly moved in to stop.
The collision occurred after Lloris said that Son Heung-min was accompanied by a superficial person, leaving Richarlison to give Everton striker a definite gap in the first half injury time. Son was replaced by coach Jose Mourinho in the 78th minute.
The scuffle between Son and Lloris is the highlight of the match without many chances to score. Everton, before the match, only one point behind Tottenham but not striving to attend the European Cup next season. Jose Mourinho’s students were more determined, and scored the only goal of the match in the 24th minute.
After defender Everton blocked Harry Kane’s shot, the ball found Giovani Lo Celso in the box. Argentina midfielder hit center-back Michael Keane to change the direction, causing goalkeeper Jordan Pickford to give up.
While Tottenham finished nine times in the first 45 minutes, Everton only shot twice. Significant situation for the visitors came in the first half injury-time. In the unaccompanied position, Richarlison takes a shot from outside the box but the ball misses the post.
The dangerous opportunities in the second half belong to Son. The Korean striker, from personal efforts, twice forced Pickford to show his talent and once deflected a narrow column. Across the field, Everton didn’t show much determination to change the outcome.
Son plays prominently in the match
Coach Jose Mourinho won his 200th match in the English Premier League. The 1-0 win also maintains hopes of attending Tottenham’s European Cup next season. They rose to eighth, seven points behind leaders U United and four points behind Wolves.
