Heung-min Son emphatically ended his eight-game goal drought with a 12 -minute hat-trick as Tottenham came from behind to thrash Leicester 6-2 on Saturday English Premier League match.
Son was dropped to the bench after failing to score in any of Spurs’ opening matches of the season but kick-started his campaign with a magical cameo from the bench following his introduction on the hour, firing in two trademark long-range strikes before slotting his third past the helpless Danny Ward.
First-half headers from Harry Kane and Eric Dier and Rodrigo Bentancur’s first Spurs goal had seen Antonio Conte’s side bounce back from Youri Tielemans’ sixth-minute, retaken penalty and James Maddison’s magical hooked finish to lead 3-2 early in the second half.
Tottenham’s unbeaten start to seven games and lifted Conte’s side above rivals Arsenal up to second in the table, level on points with Premier League leaders Manchester City.
Winless Leicester’s nightmare start to the campaign continued as a heavy sixth-consecutive defeat left the Foxes rooted to the foot of the table with just a single point after seven games as the pressure mounted on manager Brendan Rodgers.
