Tottenham Hotspur defeated Southampton 5-2 on the road yesterday morning at St. Mary’s Stadium in the Barclays Premier League. Southampton’s defense forgot to cover Tottenham attacker Heung-Min Son because Son scored four goals. Also, Tottenham striker Harry Kane assisted on all four of Son’s goals and scored the fifth goal.
However, the game started in Southampton’s favor as Saints forward Danny Ings scored the first goal of the match off of a long ball in the 32nd minute. The problems started for Southampton in extra time when Son scored his first goal on a counterattack in extra time of the first half. That momentum was taken away by Tottenham with a 1-1 tie into intermission.
Son linked up with Kane again two minutes after the start of the second half to put Tottenham Hotspur up 2-1. Son completed the hat trick in the 64th minute off of a chip pass from Kane. Southampton was tricked again nine minutes later as Kane drifted wide to draw the defense. Then, Kane chipped a pass to Son, who made a run down the middle for his fourth goal.
Kane decided to score a goal instead of assisting in the 82nd minute when he scored off of a deflection after Erik Lamela’s shot hit the goal post. Ings ended the scoring with his second goal in the 90th minute on a penalty kick.
