Tottenham news: Son Heung-min cracks Harry Kane joke after Spurs put four past Newcastle | Football | Sport


joked that may be due a phone call after assuming penalty duties from his former team-mate. The South Korean confidently dispatched his spot-kick on Sunday afternoon as Spurs ran out convincing 4-1 winners at home to .

It took until the 16th game of the season for Tottenham to finally be awarded a penalty in the Premier League. Son won it, stepped up himself and fired it low and hard past Martin Dubravka to put his side four goals up.

That put the cherry on top of a superb day’s work for the 31-year-old, who shone on the left flank and helped himself to a pair of assists. Clearly buoyed by his performance; Son cracked a joke about Kane, who joined Bayern Munich in the summer, when asked for his take on the penalty he put away.

“Shall we call Harry back?” he told Sky Sports. “I practiced all the time, even when Harry was here. You never know what’s going to happen in football, it’s all about practicing.

“Obviously I learned from Harry. I hope [it means a few more goals for me]. It was the first penalty of the season for us, so I hope we can get more penalties.”

Richarlison took the plaudits alongside Son for a top-class display against the Magpies, scoring his second and third Premier League goals of the season to supplement Destiny Udogie’s opener. By the time Newcastle notched a consolation through Joelinton in second-half stoppage time, the game was already beyond doubt.

“We said we had to be more ruthless. We were ruthless today and created chances. We did a fantastic job. To beat Newcastle 4-1 is not easy. They are a very strong side, so credit to all the players and fans.

“We are playing in the Premier League and we have to demand more and more from each other. There is never enough. The amazing teams always keep going, it doesn’t matter how many wins they have in a row. It should be a habit for us.”
