Tottenham beat West Ham thanks to a brace from Heung-min Son as FOUR protesters failed to attempt to tie themselves to goal posts in the second half

Heung-min Son scored twice as Tottenham beat West Ham 3-1 in Saturday’s London derby.

Kurt Zouma accidentally opened the scoring with an own goal before Son doubled the Spurs lead. Said Benrahma scored just before half-time but the visitors failed to capitalize and the South Korean star sealed the win late on.

The action started with Spurs taking the lead in the ninth minute, benefiting from another own goal.

Matt Doherty won the ball high up, passed it to Harry Kane, who hit it to Son, but the final touch came from Zouma.

It was the tenth time an opposing player broke his own net against Spurs in all competitions this season.

Son, who previously just hit the post, made it 2-0 in the 24th minute and Kane was the assist again.

The 29-year-old grabbed a pass that split the defense before whipping the ball past Fabianski with the help of a deflector.

West Ham drew back a goal against the flow of play ten minutes before the break when Benrahma fired home when Craig Dawson fired a corner at the far post.

There was a flash point early in the second half when the ball was out of bounds.

As Son walked over to take a corner, Zouma kicked the ball and hit him in the back. Son went down and the two groups of players clashed in response, although the referee eventually calmed things down.

During that break in play, four protesters attempted to tie themselves to the goal posts, just as a protester had done at Goodison Park on Thursday night.

However, stewards intercepted all three before they could get a hold.

There was little else to write home about until the closing minutes of the second half, as Spurs wrapped up the win on fatality when Son raced on Kane’s header and fired home.

The result put Spurs ahead of Manchester United in fifth place. Antonio Conte’s men are three points behind fourth-placed Arsenal and have played a game fewer than their north London rivals.
