A misfiring Tottenham Hotspur squeezed past a resolute Watford side 1-0 thanks to Davinson Sanchez’s last gasp winner. Despite the positive result, the fans were far from positive on social media.
Last minute winners are a thing of beauty in football, but if it comes down to a 1-0 win after a poor game, you’ll still be frustrated as the Spurs fans were on this occasion, with one of the main players coming in for criticism being Son Heung-min.
Do you expect Levy to back Conte?
His performance really irked the Spurs faithful, despite it being his free-kick that set up Sanchez’s header. The fact that still wasn’t enough to save him from a Twitter slamming shows he really must’ve annoyed supporters.
What the Spurs fans said about Son
“Be aggressive as he wants, should try to learn how to play football again.” @DanReilly_25
“Like playing with 10 men with Son on the pitch at the moment.” @LukeRumble94
“Son so poor again.” @plconnoisseur
“Son needs 20 chances to score one goal. But when he does he automatically becomes world-class.” @ThfcHucein
“Cause Son is playing shocking!! As he has for ages.” @sadtobespurs
“He’s finished sadly.” @thfcGaryMBE
You can see why Spurs fans are frustrated with their South Korean star. He only managed three shots all game, with only one of them actually being on target. Also according to SofaScore, Son missed a big chance too.
Sanchez’s winner ultimately saved Son’s blushes for missing a sitter, but the fans were still shocked by his performance.
It was a huge win for Spurs however, capitalising on their north London rivals Arsenal dropping points in the race for Champions League football.
