Tottenham Hotspur vs. Leicester City result, highlights & analysis as sensational Son hat-trick ransacks Foxes.
Son Heung-min came off the bench to fire a spectacular hat-trick as Tottenham thrashed bottom club Leicester 6-2 in a thrilling Premier League encounter.
Antonio Conte dropped Son to the bench after eight games without a goal this season but,
with the game in the balance after Rodrigo Bentacur restored Spurs’ lead early in the second half,
last season's Premier League Golden Boot winner brought the house down at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Son beat Leicester goalkeeper Danny Ward with two stunning strikes from outside the penalty area - one right-footed,
one left-footed - and dispatched Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s pass before waiting for a VAR offside call to fall in his favor.
Leicester have now lost six in a row to leave manager Brendan Rodgers under huge pressure.
Youri Tielemans gave them an early lead from the penalty spot and, after Harry Kane and Eric Dier capitalized upon poor set-piece defending,
the excellent James Maddison brought the Foxes level at halftime, making their collapse to remain on a solitary point for the campaign all the more galling.
