Mason, Son land personal milestone in Spurs win

Mason, Son land personal milestone as Tottenham snatch comeback win in first game after Mourinho's sacking

April 21, 2021 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The South Korean completed the comeback for the London club under new manager Ryan Mason.

A late penalty goal by Son Heung-min's was enough to land him an all-new Premier League milestone and his Tottenham Hotspur side an important win in their first game after Jose Mourinho's departure. Similarly, Spurs' interim manager Ryan Masson entered the record books after the South Korean remarkably secured the comeback win against Southampton on Wednesday night.

The latter started his tenure on a bad note with his side conceding the opener inside the first 30 minutes. It was Danny Ings who put the Saints in front, nodding home James Ward-Prowse's corner to give his side the advantage ahead of half-time. Nevertheless, the script was revised owning to the start of the second half as Gareth Bale and Heung-min Son will ensure that Spurs' top-four hopes were kept alive by hitting the target.

The Real Madrid loanee scored the equalizer in the 60th minute with a stunning curler before a penalty decision went in favor of Sergio Regulion in the 88th minute. Heung-min son subsequently stepped up to convert the chance, taking his tally for the season to 15 and setting a new benchmark for the most goals he has scored in a single Premier League season. The South Korean also became the first player since Mohamed Salah in 2017/2018 season to score five goals against the same opposition in the a single campaign.

For Spurs' interim boss Ryan Mason, the result in his first match in charge made him the youngest-ever manager in history to win a Premier League game. Similarly, he went level with a record managed by Jose Mourinho as his directives ensured a comeback win for the London club after going into the half-time trailing. Under the Portuguese manager, they managed the feat on just one occasion in 14 attempts. They lost 11 and drew two of the remaining 13 games.

At the moment, Tottenham Hotspur still remain within reach of a top-four place with just two points seperating them and fourth-placed Chelsea. The Whites will take on Manchester City in the EFL Cup final over the weekend before they lock-horns with Sheffield United in their next Premier League outing.
