Son Heung-Min covers Mascot’s head from the rain in a sweet gesture ahead of Tottenham’s clash with Sheffield United in the Premier League.
It would be an understatement to say that Tottenham are currently struggling in the Premier League. After 12 matches they find themselves in 14th place and are just 6 points above the relegation zone. Although they did put up a far better performance against Sheffield United this weekend.
The Blades were a goal down and it looked like Tottenham would get full points. However, they levelled the score in the 78th minute to walk away with one each as Sheffield United continued to impress. Son Heung-Min’s 58th minute strike gave Tottenham their lead. However, it was what he did before the match that has caught everyone’s imagination.
