Son Heung-min, who was expected to be unable to participate due to a thigh injury, took the lead in winning the team by scoring 2 goals and 1 assist in a surprise game against Manchester United overnight.

Son Heung-min also set a record of 100 goals in the European big leagues.

Reporter Jung Hee-don reports.


Son Heung-min was initially opaque due to concerns about organ injury, but was surprised by putting a tape on the back of his thigh.

Heung-min Son, who was looking for a chance, scored his fifth goal this season with a sensational chip shot over the Manchester United De Gea goalkeeper in the 7th minute of the first half.

It was a valuable reverse goal that came out of a one-on-one tie in which both teams exchanged one goal in less than five minutes from the start of the match.

Then Marsial was sent off for foul, and Tottenham's numerical advantage continued, and Son Heung-min's one-man show continued.

In the 30th minute of the first half, Son Heung-min helped Harry Kane's extra goal with an accurate pass, and 7 minutes later, he pushed Orier's cross with his right foot to shake the net again.

This is the sixth goal this season and Son Heung-min's 100th goal in the European league.

With this, Son Heung-min became the first Asian player to score 100 goals in the European Big League, surpassing the 98 goals scored by Cha Bum-geun.

Tottenham, who had a 4-1 lead in the first half, scored one more goal in the 6th minute of the second half, and Mourinho called Son Heung-min on the bench in the 28th minute, who scored two goals and one assist.

Tottenham added a penalty goal by Harry Kane to a 6-1 win over Manchester United, winning their second win of the season.

Son Heung-min, who showed off his health with a quick recovery, is expected to take a break for the next two weeks and compete in the home game against West Ham on the 19th.
